“Great lunch spot with jaw-dropping view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We've been to this restaurant a couple of times and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic - innovative, different, fresh and delicious. The ploughman's platter is a must - homebaked bread, cheese from the region, salad, brinjal preserve, asparagus, fillet steak, fruits - wonderful. Burgers had on a previous occasion deserve to be called gourmet burgers. Wonderful spot for lunch out in the country, 15 minutes from Clarens, with the most wonderful view of Golden Gate. Take your own wine. Only criticism is the loo wiht is a bit rustic and could do with some maintenance.

“Delectable and healthy homegrown and baked food and a great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

I had the ploughmans platter when we were there in March - it has a variety of divine preserves, homebaked bread, salad, cheese, cold meat, fruit and a slice of quiche. Great coffee! Lunch on a Sunday is a must - you will need to book though. They have a "Harvest Table" where all the food is set out on a table and you go and help yourself to what you fancy. Each plate gets weighted and there is a lovely variety of different choices of meats and veggies and fruit is added to most of the dishes. When I had the Harvest Table meal it was in May and the fruit used was pomegranates...looked divine and tasted divine. The decor is appealing for a side-walk cafe. One can sit inside or outside. Overall a wonderful experience. I go there everytime I come to Clarens.
