This restaurant was the top recommendation from our guest house and we were not disappointed. The food was good quality cuisine, beautifully presented, and we had a chance to sample delights such as crocodile sashimi, kudu fillet carpaccio and the most delicious melt-in-the mouth springbok fillet stuffed with blue cheese and figs with a pinto age Demi-glaze - definitely not to be missed!

This pleasantly appointed restaurant serves an eclectic variety of dishes, with a welcome accent on South African traditional cuisine. The service is good, the tables well spaced, the wine selection interesting and the orices competitive..

Delicious food, generous portion, friendly service. Can definitely recommend this.
Especially if you'd like to try some game. The springbok with fig and blue cheese was delicious, the fillet seak was super tender!

The restaurant was recommnded to us by the owners of our B&B Cypress Cottage and on our first night we ate off the menu, which was delicious. Beautiful food, great wine and excellent personal service! We then noticed on the back of the menu that there is an option to have a 6-course taster menu with wine pairing. In one word: A-MA-ZING!! Each course was prepared with such care and each more mouth watering than the previous. The owner/chef Steve presented each dish himself and explained what it was. High class South African cuisine. This restaurant alone is worth a trip to Swellendam!!
