Award-winning South African Chef Chantel Dartnall is known for presenting the art of nature on her plates through her botanical cuisine to take you on a culinary tour of pure indulgence. Bask in the sophisticated atmosphere of exotic spaces; an Oriental style oasis set in lush and tranquil 280h of the Francolin Conservancy. The Mosaic cellar is unparalleled in this country with some of the most exceptional and rare wines from both South Africa and internationally.

We recently went back to the Orient to celebrate a birthday with a large group of friends who are really knowlegeable about ffod and wine.

We had one of the food and wine pairing menus and were blown away once again by the tatste and presentation of the food. We were quite a rowdy bunch and had a seperate private dining area where the service was once again of a high standard and the sommelier really went out of his way to give us a unusual wine pairing experience. We even managed to go to the impressive wine cellars.

The food is always prepared with seasonal produce so you never really have the same thing twice but the tastes and combinations prepared by Chantel are always mouth watering. Chantel derves more recognition than she gets.

We will be going back and will also be staying overnight. There also appears to be a private cinema on the premises which is not listed on their website which could make an intersting food and movie night?

This restaurant concentrates food tasting and wine pairing menu's.
Their cuisine is usually a 5 or 7 course meal with almost perfect wine pairings.
Whilst really good they could add a bit more food to each dish, besides that wonderful food.

After our first visit in January we returned for another fantastic stay. The wine pairing with the outstanding cuisine was amazing. The friendly warm efficient service was as superb as our first visit and the breakfast next morning was also of the highest standard. Mari and Chantel run a remarkable hotel & restaurant that has to be seen to be believed. Added to this incredible country venue is the game wondering around the grounds that are so friendly one can almost touch them.The lovely walk down to the water hole is a must to work up an appetite for the feast that awaits you.
Well done Mari & Chantel, we will see you again in September.
