The food served was absolutely divine, we had steak and a vegetarian option which was to die for. The service was lovely, and the chef came out to speak to customers individually - a lovely intimate touch. If you're staying or passing through Swellendam this restaurant is an absolute must!!

We were a group of 7 couples that had dinner there during the long weekend in June 2013. The restaurant was actually closed for their winter holiday, but when I spoke to Stephan he said he will open the restaurant for our use only. I made a booking for a square table and yet when we got there, the table was in a U shape. Very unpractical because some had to sit back to back. We asked them to rectify the matter and soon we were all seated around a square table. The service was good and the food superb. We had a 3 course meal @ R 180pp, and each course was enjoyed by everybody. Stephan really outdone himself. We enjoyed the food and can highly recommend this restaurant, a must visit when you are in Swellendam. We will be back.
