Can't understand why they don't seem to get it right at this place! Most amazing setting in the Northern suburbs but the food is average to terrible. Amazing friendly staff though but the absolute last place on my list if I want to have a nice meal. Please guys hire a good chef and get that menu right like it used to be when David was there.

what a LET DOWN! way overpriced and the food is actually quite boring and tasteless.

i was quite furious.

and it is not good to get furious at a restaurant. i mean really, one wants to relax and have a good time, that is why you are paying.

give this one a big skip.

Service is a bit slow but then everything is only prepared to order. Food is good and tasty and the views are spectacular. Coffee is excellent. Sit out on the stoep if you have a choice and weather permitting to enjoy the scenery - you won't be sorry.

Manor House, wooden floors, 3 dining areas, could have made more use of space eg a bar area, and made one open dining room. Food we felt was, experimental dishes, tried to be fine dining, but would have been better off with rustic dishes, making them slightly fine, if they are after the fine dining look!.
example STARTERS>>>Calamari stuffed with lamb knuckle bobotie,on open squid ink ravioli with pumpkin chutney! Poached chicken/basil mousse with white wine cream sauce, garlic crouten, zucchini pesto and confit tomatoes..
