We were recommended this restaurant from the guest house we were staying at and it was a great one. The menu was not too long but the choice was good. Great fresh local ingredients well cooked and presented. Nothing too fancy just simply delicious food! There is also a good choice of local wines to complement the food. The hosts... More

After a long bad day at work, I wasn't really excited to go out to dinner. But the service and quality of the food was excellent. The timing of the courses was perfect and their suggestions helpful.

Had such an amazing dinner here. Very charming and cozy restaurant. The staff was very friendly with a great sense of humour. Food had lovely attention to detail. Trout was amazing. And definitely don't give the brandy ice cream a mis.

This restaurant is worth a visit. The food presentation was a work of art. Our meals were well prepared and tasty. Our waitress was friendly. The restaurant is spread through three areas giving you an intimate cozy feel to the evening. Colin lived up to his reputation although to be fair he was happy to see his regulars. For a... More

We were led to believe that we would enjoy a superlative meal, but neither my husband or I, nor the friends with whom we were travelling, found the menu particularly inspired. The food was good, but homely and certainly not deserving of over-enthusiastic accolades. An otherwise pleasant enough evening turned sour when our friends were told very pretentiously by the...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review The menu is written as follows: Our Legendary Black Gold Ice Cream R60-00 Using our family’s secret recipe and a 21-year-old pot stilled brandy It clearly states we use the brandy in the ice cream and not that it is for free that why we always ask if the guest...

The restaurant is part of a guest house in a lovely old building, the service was efficient and attentive. All the dishes we had were very well presented, and generally of an excellent standard and very well priced (Steak for R135). (The fish pasta was delicious). The wine list sticks to offerings from the Robertson valley and they have done... More

We got off to a shaky start with the gentleman owner who didn't really like the idea we had arrived a bit early for our booking. However his wife placated us & proceeded to serve us & do all the cooking. We enjoyed our meals & the best came last....the ice cream & brandy dessert. We enjoyed the dessert &... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and almost lived up to expectations. The food was enjoyable but there were clearly staffing problems affecting the service, and a personal grouse of mine, as the solitary wine drinker at the table, was the very poor quality of wine by the glass particularly as it was emphasised that bottles could not be taken...
