Stopped at Asara to vissit the deli and wine tasting centre. The staff, all of them from the security guard to the barista/waiter/manager at the deli, were most welcomming, friendly and helpfull. Had a lovely lunch and especially enjoyed the coffee, as well as the barista's friendliness, professionalism and brilliant service - he is an asset! (I think his name started with a "C", but can't remember now).

The Cheddar cheese used on the cheeseboard was of the lowest possible quality.
The service was substandard. The venue itself is beautiful...very large menu with very limited vegetarian options. My date had the mini burger selection which was pronounced excellent.

We loved it at asara. From the welcoming faces. The wine tasting started fron the displayed soil types which show where the wines grapes are from which soil.then the tasting just blow you taste buds off. I feel in love with Cape infusion wine.is delicously rich yet full of flavour.

We were quite disappointed with the steak as it was of a poor quality and the blood was brown and meat was not cooked to request. I suspect it was frozen and then microwaved, but I'm not a chef. The venue on the other hand was lovely.

We visited the Asara Estate for a Tour and Wine Tasting the Setting is Perfect.From the Professionally Manicured Estate to One off the Nicest Wine Tasting Rooms we've experienced in our Many Trips to the Region.Sampled many Great Wine's every tasting of a New Veridal was met with a Fresh Glass. First Class Service all the Way.Also Incredible Views of the Valley below and the Mountains.Must Stop.
