“Don't be chicken”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you want to experience typical Cape Dutch cuisine in the perfect setting, look no further. A wide selection of traditional Cape fare, served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Meraai se paai is the best chicken pie you are likely to eat in the Cape.

“Perfect”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had dinner in this charming wangon trail stop in Stellenbosch. It was along side a small river in a most charming section of Stellenbosch within walking distance of most of the hotels. We had a variety of local dishes (mine was Kudu) along with a fine selection of local wines. The service was attentive, the food excellent, and the value exceptional. They were easy to deal with as I made the arrangements from the US and everything was as expected.

“Marvellous decor”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is in an period building and the room is beautifully decorated. Food and wine excellent if a little expensive. Staff friendly and the hostess came to our table for a chat - very welcoming.
