We were a group of friends eating at the pizza restaurant and the food was delicious but we had to wait quite long for our starters to be served. service was good as well. Not the best place I've eaten but I would go back.

Overall a pleasant experience.

This restaurant is situated hi against the hill so your views are beautiful. The menu is seasonal and comprises of a few items for each course rather than an extensive menu that leaves you struggling what to choose. They blend the seasonal produce with unique Asian and local flavours and they incorporate the Cape Malay style flavours in several of their dishes.

The food is very good and beautifully presented and the wines compliment the meals.

They also have a biltong and micro brewery beer tasting bar facility on the estate and a hand blown glass gallery.

All in all a great place to come to but come early or book in advance over weekends and holidays or you won't get a place. It's busy!

Has awesome delicious food. I would go there again. Love the view. I highly recommend it for families, friends. There are a number of different eating venues. Wine tasting, chocolate tasting' bear tasting, even tea tasting for tea lovers. Nice bar aqua and platter menses of cheeses and cold meats if you don't want full lunches.

The setting for this restaurant is like non other - you won't easily find another restaurant with this view of the Paarl Valley. It really is beautiful. The food at the spice route restaurant is tasty, the menu is diverse and there will definitely be something for every palate. Whether you pay for what you get is another question, it is not a cheap restaurant and the service (we found) is lacking. Our waiter routinely forgot orders and we kept having to go and fetch him rather than him come to our table. This however, might have been an exception rather than typical if I look at other reviews. I would have loved to give an excellent rating for this restaurant; however, on reflection I feel we mostly paid for a beautiful setting.

What an amazing lunch! They incorporate the theme into each and every single dish and then you get this absolutely amazing view thrown in as well! The craft beer, wine and chocolate tasting is an added bonus and we are already planning a return visit!
