“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Our lodgings booked us a table here for lunch. Great food and very good value. Service very attentive and lots of wine available by the glass if you want to try several. It seemed popular with private tour groups of 5 or 6 with their private guide so booking is essential I would think.
Has a small deli shop where we bought some bread and cheese for a picnic later.

“Superb setting and food - shame about the owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We went on a beautiful day - the gardens are heavenly. The food and service were absolutely heavenly but the atmosphere was spoilt by a woman who apparently is the owner. She scurried about with a face like a poker from table to table, interrupting conversations, interrogating the customers as to whether they were enjoying their meals and then not listening to their responses. She did not 'engage' with any of the diners, just whistled on to the next table. It was most unsettling. What was quite funny was watching the way she honed in on the apparently wealthiest tables and then worked her way down the food chain! If I had been one of those sweet and very efficient waitresses I would have biffed her one! She busily told people she was also responsible for Le Quartier Francais - so at least that confirmed our decision to give it a miss - she really did NOT understand how to get on with customers. It was not relaxing until we decided to treat her as a joke. But the restaurant itself was just fabulous.

“best bread in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is our third holiday in the Winelands and each time we have begun with lunch at Bread & Wine – unbeatable! The friendly staff, the peaceful setting, the imaginative menu, and then delicious bread, meats and cheese from the deli to enjoy for supper – the perfect start to the perfect holiday. Thank you.

“Long and lovely lunch....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We met up with friends who love this place... we could see why - fine food accompanied by selection of great wine. In the UK you might call this fine dining but here it comes with out any pretentions and that tasty food is accompanied by excellent service in a beautiful out door setting..

“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The surroundings are great and so is the food. It was very well made and well presented. The combinations in the different dishes are a bit fun and different. Reservations needed.
