Sometimes we expect too much and that in a sense does not give the restaurant the flexibility of our views. This restaurant has both elegance and good food, but I was not impressed. Maybe the experience of Franschhoek has lifted the benchmark for me….

We chose this as they offered a free transfer and as we had arrived in the late afternoon wanted an easy first evening. The food was great, wide choice and great wine list (as you would expect). Lovely cosy restaurant and would highly recommend

We have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and always enjoy the friendly owners and the good food. Very dynamic menu with something for everyone - from beautiful starters and taster 'bites' of special ingredients, to rustic wood fired pizzas. Always flavourful food and very affordable especially for the area. Great service and wine.

Friendly service and a warm welcome ! Although we had not booked, we were not shown away .. relaxed at the bar for a short while, before we were offered a table at the cosy fireplace. The service and food were excellent. Great value for money .... we will return !
