We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant having been recommended by the Augusta de Mist Guest House. They were right, fabulous food and wine. Lovely cosy setting and the service was very good. The fillet steak was cooked to perfection.

From our experience in eating in many restaurants in S A the earlier you eat the better the service. Our table was booked for 7-30pm the restaurant was busy and had a nice atmosphere but the service was very slow. When we did finally get our meal it was lovely and well presented and although we don't like being rushed waiting one hour for our starter was a not good!!!!

We had the steak and it was very well prepared and presented.

Would recommend if you are looking for quality rather than quantity

We recently had dinner @ Field & Fork. Food and service was good - but we found it definitively overpriced. ZAR 185.00 for a steak might sound cheap to people who earn Pounds or Euros but not for the average South African with average income. The prices are for sure laid out for overseas tourists. And is it a new thing that guests get automatically billed a 10% service fee?

Simple, but very good food. A bit pricey, but with its beautiful setting and quality food, it's worth the while.
