We stopped here for a light lunch and to enjoy the vista from the veranda while sipping beer and munching on a light meal. Lovely setting with beautiful views of the Berg and friendly staff, although our waitron can still improve on her waitering skills. The accomodation looks promising, and hopefully sooner than later I will be able to make use of it. But back to lunch.
Light lunches are served from 11h30-16h00 and the menu is limited. The food, however, is fresh and the portions ample, and I think good value for money. I had a Mountain Burger (two patties (slightly undercooked) nice sauce, with everything well-presented) for R55 ($5.50) and my brother-in-law had chicken curry (ample portion) for R45 ($3.50). Considering that you can enjoy this while sampling the wonderful view, to me, represents value. Drinks are also reasonably priced and to me it is one of the the ideal places to relax and enjoy a light meal in the Berg.
