We visited for wine tasting at midday on a Sunday and also had the meat and cheese platters.

Very well priced. Waitress was attentive and quick to serve us at our table. She have a nice quick description of each of the wines. (Six tasters)

I recommend the white wine more so than the red on the more expensive tasting option.

The design of the building is lovely and the way the light streams in. Views outside are gorgeous and great photo taking opportunity.

Really recommend the cheddar cheese which they serve also.

While the scenery was stunning, we could not have been more disappointed by the food. The rabbit starter was a plate of brown mush while the trout had no real flavor and kept repeating. The beef fillet main was a let down as well with several overpowering flavours that did not compliment the meat dish.

We certainly will not be returning.

A friend of our suggested this restaurant to us just outside CT in Somerset west .stunning location overlooking the winery, mountains and the bay on the opposite side. The building is very modern as the interior Design of the place . We had a 2 course meal with suggested wines and the food was excellent I wish there was a bit more of it. We had a good lunch overall bit I prefer Tokara on Stellenbosh

This is a striking looking restaurant that appears to hang over the hillside.
The food was the best so far in our 2 week holiday.
Not only did it taste amazing but each course looked like a work of art.
The chefs deserve applause.

We took the 7 course tasting menu with matching wines. Small portions (as expected) but all prepared to perfection with very nice taste combinations (except for the rabbit which was a bit lackluster). Good wine combinations except for a chilled red wine which was absolutely not up to the high standard of the other wines presented. Service was perfect.
The restaurant building is quite something too: a huge modern concrete/glass combination - impressive from the outside as well as from the inside.And what a view ... spectacular!
