The setting was idealic, Cape Dutch homestead and polo estate on a warm summer afternoon. We sat on the terrace overlooking the lands and mountains, hoping our lunch would match the surroundings. The food did not disappoint. The artichoke pie on the starter menu, which we ordered as a main, was plenty to eat. The steak tartare was excellent as was was the crumbed calamari and the T-bone. There were however some small issues which struck a discordant note. Our waitress was not well enough trained for an establishment of this stature. She was unable to advise us that the lack of sauce on the aubergines was due to a change in the menu and she seemed to have little training in serving wine. The food was also overpriced and the markup on the wines outrageous. No matter how good the wine, at R350-00 a bottle, the Springfield Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc would have left a bitter taste in my mouth. Perhaps the prices were just seasonal, but whatever the case, I feel there is far better value available out there, even for this quality food.
