“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It is always great to go back to an old-time favourite and on a cold winter's day the log fire creates the ambience that will have us keep coming back, in addition to the wonderful Norwegian salmon.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Very cosy restaurant during winter time with couple of fireplaces. Starters were tasty, but overpriced for the amount of food on the plate. Main however made up for this. In my opinion one of the top 3 restaurants in Stellenbosch to have steak. Also very generous portion of french fries and vegetables to accompany the meal. Wine list is diverse, however wines are pretty expensive if compared to retail and wine farm value. The bar is also well stocked and could prepare a number of drinks requested. Overall very nice evening, would have given 5 for better value on starters and maybe some cheaper wine options.

“One of my favourite restaurants ever”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been at. Wonderful service, amazing food and Nice atmosphere. The bread basket has amazing, freshly baked bread, the yummiest salad is a top starter and you have to try the cherry duck pie. In summer, sit outside and enjoy a view of the winelands. Be sure to book a table as they can be quite full.

“A let-down”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon to celebrate my husbands birthday. I had their medium steak with an added pepper sauce. My steak was a bit sinewy and arrived at the table luke-warm, as did the sauce. It wasn't a good start! My husband had the springbok shank. It was overly flavored with citrus which really overpowered the game flavour. Overall, we were not that impressed with the food. The service was however, very good. Wouldn't go back.
