What a setting! Such a beautiful spot within the Vergelegan Estate which is worth visiting even if you do not eat here. Lunch was a wonderful affair, with excellent service and high quality food. On top of all that the prices are really competitive for such a location.

Even though I've lived abroad in a few countries for quite some years, it's always nice coming home. I'm still exhausted after a month of traveling overseas - work is calling though and I was ready for my first mystery dining and wining assignment for 2017.

My husband and I had lunch here and ordered the Thai Beef salad! It was a delicious, healthy and tasty meal and our waitress Yasmina was lovely. Beautiful airy venue on a hot summer day. Nothing to complain about...a positive enjoyable experience!
