Was, for years one of my favourite venues in the World , but due to circumstances and life changes , had not been for some years,until last month.
Took some London friends, who have a house in the area, they, had often heard me, rave about it, so it was time to head for the hills of the Hemel and Aarde valley.
Julia, Jenny and team are still on top of things, such gracious & unpretentious hosts to compliment their brilliantly presented & yummy country fare, with a twist.
Long lazy afternoon, gazing down to the herb & veggie garden ( its all, mostly organic here ), the pond and rolling green hills beyond, towards the Atlantic ocean.
I prefer lunches, and pretend that I am in Provence or somewhere equally laid back, at a friends house, no rush, and the road is tarred most of the way, except for the last minute or two through the tranquil adjacent fruit farms. Make that booking.

Booked for family lunch with friends while visiting Hermanus during the holidays. We planned to go for an hour and 4 hours later we were still having a blast. The home away from home is completely child friendly, dogs wonder about and on a sunny day there is no need to rush. There view is magnificent and the food, another story all together. We ate fresh, delicious meals that were such a treat to the senses. The staff were all on first name basis by the time we left. We will make a plan to return for sure.

The wind howled as we sat tucked next to a roaring fireplace. The mood is laid back with a great selection of music. The food is delicious! Fine flavours that we're so good I couldn't resist cleaning every last morsel off my plate. We settled on 2 starters each and shared a pudding and a bottle of wine - with tip the bill came in at R500 and we were filled to capacity! Great venue, service and food to die for

Off the beaten path - pretty drive to get there, and that's all part of the outing, right? In a cabin-like house beside a small pond/lake. The food was delicious, not inexpensive, but worth a second visit.

Quite a drive from Cape Town for lunch but food and service makes it worthwhile. Very interesting salads for starters (lots of herby flavours) followed by lamb and pork main dishes of high quality. The only negative was the large group of smokers outside whose smoke filtered into the eating area constantly
