Description: The only Wine Estate Restaurant slap bang in the middle of The Garden Route! Enjoy an afternoon of local wines, cheeses, oysters, meats, pates and more all served with freshly baked homemade breads and polished off with a decadent dessert. Set in the vineyards and overlooking the Tsitsikamma mountains and The Elephant Sanctuary. This family run estate offers organoleptic fare for the entire family!

We visited the retsaurant for a late lunch (3pm). I heard so many good things about the place but am sad to say I didn't have a great experience at all. Our waiter hardly checked in on us and we had to go ask them for drinks twice. The menu was very limited due them being out of stock on multiple items. Only after delivering our food were we informed of other out of stock items.

Besides the above the setting is very cool, the bread is great and the food (that was in stock) was very good.

We went for lunch on recommendation from a local couple. We had on outside table and the place was busy. The service was prompt and they do try. There is no formal or blackboard menu but you do get a slip of paper with the available tapas and a pencil to tick off your choices. On first sight our choices seemed quite small especially the hummus and fish pate. Don't be fooled though as all the dishes go further with the delicious bread that comes as an extra.
Overall we had a lovely lunch.

We have been to this restaurant twice now and loved it every time. A beautiful afternoon, sitting under an umbrella at a table under the vines. We tasted wine at the estate before arriving at the restaurant. The Bramon Sauvignon Blanc is superb, especially when it is served very cold. It is fruity and tasty. You can buy wine by the glass or bottle at the restaurant and the food is mezze style with either half or a whole loaf of really good home made bread. We chose two dishes. Camembert and fig warmed and a small Salmon pate to share followed by a chocolate brownie and ice cream and delicious coffee. The staff are friendly and helpful and the venue is really worth a visit. The scenic view is really sitting in amongst the vines with the mountain in the background.

Good food and wine. Enjoyed the food. Lovely fresh bread and variety of mezze. Could improve on things to eat and do(crayons?) for young children.

What an ideal place to take your visitors for an al-fresco lunch on the Garden Route, especially if you can get a table between the vines! The first time we went there was before they harvested, so we were able to sneak a few grapes from the vines as we waited for our lunch! The menu has been slightly different each time we have visited, but all the plates that we have tried have been of excellent taste and quality. They prepare it all fresh, and do warn you of a slight wait, but their wine is also good, (though choice is limited) and the bread is divine (if a little fattening!). A different experience for those of us who are used to the wineries of the Stellenbosch/Franschoek area, but well worth a visit. The staff are friendly, helpful and look after you well, and we would recommend this as a great lunch experience.
