Not a part of Cape Town we get to much, which is a mistake as there was a reason the first estates in the Cape were established here by the Dutch Settlers. Avenues of old oak trees lead you to magnificent gabled white manor houses perfectly proportioned against the purple mountain backdrop.
The bistro at Buitenverwachting is cozy in winter, with friendly dogs knocking at the glass doors to get out of the rain. The coffee is served in artfully created mugs, while the menu provides for a range of tastes.
On sunny days, the courtyard bounded by the tasting room and the restaurant offers relaxed comfortable seating from which to indulge. Our food was excellent (The Cesar salad amazing). The wines such that a driver is a necessity and the service friendly and attentive.
