“Brilliant kids friendly traditional restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stunning views over Stellenbosch Vineyards. Super friendly service, great food and kid friendly. What a win and well worth a visit whether only for a breakfast lunch or dinner. It is also a conference / wedding venue.

Extensive menu with all the old Favourates. (you can even enjoy 'skilpaadjies' for breakfast!) Outside as well as inside kids play area close by so you can enjoy the meal while keeping a eye on the little ones.

“Cape winelands experienvece not to mis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Traditional Cape hospitality with excellent view, food and service - and of course the wine is affordable - visit the "snuistery' shop for a gift to take home!

“gobsmacking location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I don't often enjoy eating on my own but I could have stayed here for hours. Got dropped off here by a local who recommended it for lunch. As usual the welcome was exceptional and within in seconds I was merrily tasting my way through their wines with expert advice, the view over the vines probably impacted my judgement but they all tasted sublime. The menu reminded me of a good English country pub, my seafood platter was a massive crispy extravaganza that I was quite happy to munch my way slowly through contemplating the landscapes. After lunch had a nice walk around the building, shop and grounds and then went back to the farm for a snooze. Yes - I recommend this place whole heartedly !
