Food and service was excellent! Although at first the menu did not seem nice the food was a surprise! Jungle gym desperately in need of repair though

Wonderful country setting. Simply but stunningly decorated. Our waiter was excellent, particularly taking note that we (unfortunately) did not have much time due to travel commitments. The menu provides for all tastes - and our table of 13 had a variety of items. All beautifully...More

One dark and stormy night, my aunt booked a table at Tumble Downs. Visibility was down to about 5 metres as we manfully crept our way up the hill to our dinner. The rain was blowing side-ways and it was cold. Not a great night...More

The first time I've been let down by Tripadvisor: I really don't see what people are raving about. When you go to a restaurant with fine dining prices, you expect better food than you could make at home. The crusted sole, and chicken and prawn...More

Had a lovely meal here with the family, sitting out on the porch overlooking the green farms. Beautiful open space and fresh air, delectable menu, friendly staff and quick service. A great outing. The KZN midlands in spring are something special! Wow!

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
