If you are ever in Haartbeespoort it is worth calling and reserving your seat. It's a gorgeous little place. Once you are inside it feels intimate and rustic. Words fail me.
The food is beautiful and they prepare a menu with your name on it just lovely

Wow - what an incredible restaurant! If only we had found it sooner. We've been coming to Hartbeespoort for years, and it was only because I was trying to find a restaurant that catered for vegetarians that we ended up finding this place online.

We were a group of 7 who had a late lunch on the terrace of the restaurant. The service from Stef and his partner was perfect; attentive, a bit of banter, informative. The food was unusual and satisfying. I had the pork with crackling and the calamari, which were excellent. The duck was also fantastic.
All finished off with some great wine and a beautiful setting. And the bill was not too bad either!

Make sure you book and tell Stef in advance if you have vegetarians, dietary requirements or any special occasions.

Highly, highly, highly recommended.

Small intimate restaurant, excellent food, pleasant ambience. This is an ideal venue for small business functions or private birthday parties. The Stef mentioned in the name does the imaginative culinary work, while front of house duties are handled by his partner Athlone. The decor can only be described as eclectic with old oil paintings and Tiffany lamps. When we dined there the starters were Gorgonzola & plum salad, Green Thai prawn tails, Mediterranian Calamari. Main courses included the following selection, Flambe Fillet of beef wrapped in bacon in mushroom sauce. pan fried kabeljou fillet with roast capsicum salsa, Malayan lamb shank, oriental loin of pork, Indian lamb curry. Our party of four each had a different plate and all agreed it was an excellent meal. However why is there always a however, service is decidedly slow and I mean slow. If you drive there for Sunday lunch...we came at 12.30 and we only finished four hours later. Fortunately we were not in a hurry ! Booking essential as seating is limited (about 30 covers)

Yesterday evening for the second time we had dinner at Stef's Table and this time we brought our parents with us, because they deserved a nice evening with great food. And that's what we got!
Stef and Athlone make sure you feel more welcome than you've ever felt in any restaurant and not only are the decorations and the atmosphere unique, also the food is amazing. I had the Flambe Fillet which was rich with taste and the other dishes looked delicious as well. During dessert (best chocolate ever!) Stef turned off the music and started playing on the piano. This personal touch made our evening complete and we will be back someday soon!
