Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: 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.

We sat outdoors and enjoyed the view. The drinks were tall and cold; dessert was amazing. Service was excellent. I really enjoyed my conversation with the waiter whose name I wrote down but unfortunately I misplaced the piece of paper - I apologise. The attentive service, help with recommendations and easy conversation made the two hours we lingered over a lazy lunch a very memorable experience.
This place was a good recommendation from the young woman at the Crane Hide in Karkloof.

We are regulars and have never been disappointed. The fillet steak with brandy pepper sauce is our favorite. Thanks to Werner and Michele.

We had a lovely supper at tumble downs, specifically the morrocan curry (not hot at all, fruity and flavourful) and herb sole, both tasty. They kindly lit a fire to keep my wife warm and Mandla our waiter was very accomodating.

Booked to eat there on Father's Day and greatly enjoyed the experience and the food! The host is warm and welcoming and we especially enjoyed the 3 fireplaces on the cold winter afternoon. Almost full marks!
