We booked Sunday lunch here and I would recommend booking in. We had visited previously for wine tasting and decided to come back to enjoy the farm a bit more. No expense has been spared on the buildings and grounds. Great works of art abound. The girls went for a massage before lunch and they said it was excellent. The lunch was good but without the vista would have been average. The grounds are absolutely stunning and worth a visit for these alone. Service was very good and they have lovely fresh breads. I had fish and chips with the fish being slightly overdone. Beautiful soup to start. The rest of the mains received thumbs up from the group. It was cool outside and they hadn't enough rugs to go around so we were chilly throughout. They offered an inside table but it was worth being cool for the view.

We visited this restaurant last year. It is a stunning place and location but I must admit that the Somelier at the time, a young girl didn't know her stuff. The meal was good but forgettable. What was unforgettable was the view, the art works, what has been achieved there, and the location. It is worth a visit if you aren't watching pennies...

Another decent restaurant in the Cape Winelands. Decent enough food, with good flavours. Spectacular setting, though the art is rather over the top. The entire complex is monumental, but unwelcoming. Once again, the dining experience was marred by poor service. Food not noteworthy enough to warrant a return.

Had a very nice, relaxed lunch sitting on the terrace here. Stunning views, beautiful setting and immaculately maintained property. Food and service were good - not the best or friendliest we have had in South Africa, but still very good. The most expensive meal we have had on our trip, but still good value by European standards, especially given the very special setting and venue. We went to look at the lodges and spa after lunch which are stunning and a great place to either stay or just check into for a relaxing pampering day. The whole estate is beautiful and designed and managed to a very high standard.
