This restaurant had plent of "local" food on the menu (ostrich, springbok, etc) so it is sure to appeal to foreigners and locals alike. The food is prepared using a fusion approach and beautifully presented. I tried the seared springbok steak with a dutch chocolate and coffee sauce and the combination was wonderful. Well worth a visit. The cost of the food was very reasonable based on the good Aussie $ exchange rate.

I remember the first time I visited this spot. The food , ambiance and service was great. On my latest visit I was slightly dissapointed. The food was average and so was the service. The ambiance( especially if you sit on the veranda) is however still magnificent. It is still a good spot to go if you looking to sit under large trees on a summer afternoon sipping a glass of bubbly.

We live in Johannesburg and very willingly travel an hour to the restaurant for regular weekend lunches. It is one of the rare restaurants where the passion for exquisite cooking is evident. The presentation is really lovely and the price tag is very reasonable considering the fine dining experience.
We have never been disappointed with the duck and fig samoosas or tempura prawn starter; the chicken and salmon mains; and some unique deserts such as the peanut fudge ice-cream bar. The meat options are also great and all main portion sizes quite generous.
However, this is not a quick lunch. We've never been in an out of the restaurant in under 2 hours. However, given the food experience and the lovely decor (and you can take a walk among the orange trees to help digest the lunch), we recommend this lunch to be leisurely.
Make sure you book in advance.

Great Food, excellent service and a wonderful atmosphere.
It's a pity that you have to book weeks in advance to experience it.

A romantic countryside setting close to Hartbeespoort dam. Excellent menu supplemented by an encompassing selection of fine wines. Try the Salmon Pate as a starter and the peanut ice cream for dessert! The menu also includes a wide range of well-prepared steaks with various accompaniments. Remember to make a booking in advance as this is a popular destination for locals.
