Affordable sous-vide gastronomy in a delightful old home. The game dishes were especially good. Coming from the USA and paying in Rand, the meal was a very good value.

I had read the amazing reviews and the actual experience did not disappoint! The presentation and preparation of each dish was beautifully done. And the favors were so fresh and delicious. In addition to the courses that we ordered, they also brought additional savory and dessert samplers that were a tasty surprise. The small dining rooms made for an intimate dining environment and the staff was very attentive and friendly. This dining experience was truly a culinary treat!

The chef's tasting menu or in fact anyone of the menus provide you with a variety of smaller meals (8 to be exact) which are most delicately prepared and dished. Every plate is worth a photo and have incredibly interesting tastes. This is a restaurant worth going back to for a number of times. It has an extremely wide wine menu with some of the best South African and international wines. The venue is lovely and it is worth going early so that you can stroll the beautiful gardens before relaxing in the bar with an aperitif.

Experiencing dinning here is like going on a culinary adventure. We were treated to 9 courses of sheer desirable pleasure! It was honestly fun to see how this outstanding chef ignited our senses and played with the presentation to bring round each course in to a delightful journey.

All I can say is that it was amazing to taste, see, feel and surprises at every turn. Fish macaroons, pots that looked real vegetable patches, egg shells filled with surprises from the sea including the foam .. Was just heavenly fun to uncover the make up and story of each course!

The staff were excellent and the wine paring not only perfect but presented with an understanding of the wine and food - again the unexpected but perfectly matched (I.e. the light red with fish was amazing)..

I will go back again and again and take anyone who appreciates food and is looking for a new experience there again and again! Loved it!
