Nestled at the foot of the Langeberg mountains, enter a magical world – a sensual secret garden inhabited by legions of succulent plants and trees silhouetted against the vast South African sky.

We were staying, for a repeat visit, at Mallowdeen, a charming B&B in the Robertson valley and discovered that the barn at the cactus farm almost next door had been converted into a restaurant. We arrived, thirsty, after a dusty walk of all of 400m and were seated at a spacious table for two by the window. Our drink order was asked for immediately, the waiter obviously sensing our thirst! A smallish list of local wines with a reasonable selection by the glass at mark ups of less than 100% on retail-we know, we had visited several of the wineries.
The barn has been really nicely done up. Round roof beams, white boarded ceiling, white walls, marble floor provided about 30 covers inside with more on the terrace where there were also some comfortable sofas.
Good cutlery and glassware, nice napkins and well trained young staff. We did not see the host or hostess as she was away having a baby but everything worked nevertheless.
An amuse bouche of a warm fig with goats cheese preceded our starters. Homemade fishcakes with garnish and a wasabi mayonnaise and for me steak tartare expertly prepared at the table with beef, quails egg, brandy and all the trimmings. Delicious.
For mains we had surf and turf (rare steak with huge tiger prawns) and a pork chop cooked just pink. Accompaniments were fine.
We had one ice cream and one coffee with a grappa on the terrace and were very pleasantly surprised at the modest bill compared with the UK.
Another excellent quality restaurant is this less well known part of the Cape winelands.

We loved the decor and ambience and the food, and thought the wine list was both extensive and also incredibly reasonable. Also loved the view. Service was great too. I would recommend this to anyone.

Now this is a place to eat or stay. Just off the famed Route 62 ( longest wine route in the world) can be found Mo & Rose. The place has some style as one would expect of its young German and Italien owners. The rooms look great but I didnt stay here. But I did eat and feel the vibe and the warmth of the two people in charge. They are hands on and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are also excellent and Mr Wine man is very knowledgeable. Very stylish, very chic, very good. Just go to eat or stay. You wont be dissappointed.

Had planned a lunch here when we arrived into Robertson before driving to McGregor.
The tourist info centre gave us the directions and said it was open, the wine route list said it was open but then the other booklet./info said it was closed!
They need to make sure the opening times in the tourist adverts is correct!

Dear Lucy,

we are very sorry that we were not open when you visited and apologize for the inconvenience! Although we are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner from October until 5 May 2013 (Sunday evening only with prior reservation!) we were closed on that one Thursday, the 10th of January for private reasons. Sorry again that it was exactly on that day and that we didn't inform the tourism office, that was of course a mistake!

We invite you to visit our website www.moandrose.co.za for our opening hours during summer and winter-time.
From 13 May until 29 September 2013 we will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Kind Regards,

My girlfriend and I, along with two close friends of ours, managed to get the last table at the new years eve party hosted by Axel and his extremely efficient team. The night was a resounding success and nothing short of one of the best new years eve dinners/parties we've been to in a while. Mo & Rose is a hidden gem and well worth the visit for the food alone, not to mention the beautiful setting and flawless hospitality. The quality of champagnes and food served on the evening were on a par with some of the best best establishments I've been to in London. A job well done and a great start to 2013!
