This is the restaurant where breakfast is included if you are staying at the hotel. It is lovely with outdoor seating and a good local wine list.

Thank you very much for an amazing review of our restaurant La Cantina. We do value the time you took to share your experience with us.

Absolutely we serve breakfast in La Cantina with a hot and cold buffet and an a la carte menu, and in the evening La Cantina transforms to an elegant Italian restaurant serving traditional Italian fare like pizzas and pastas, seafood and grills.

We look forward to seeing you soon for more memorable memories.

Warmest regards,

Cheslyn-Kyle Kock

Great pizza and had an excellent sirloin last night. Pretty reasonable for a five star resort 100-150 rand per main course and can get a decent bottle of red wine for about 150 rand. Friendly service. Quite kid friendly but the layout allows for a quiet meal too.

We had dinner at La Cantina during our stay at the amazing Fancourt golf estate - what a disappointment was the treatment that we have received from the manager called Solly. I have made the booking in person early on Saturday morning at the restaurant. The friendly waitress offered me a table - which I booked. The table was not booked and definitely still available at that stage. When our party of 6 arrived for dinner we were told that the table is no longer available for us because one of there regular guests prefers that specific table and they just gave it to him! I approached Solly - he just simply told me " that's not the way we do things here". He promised to get back to me to explain why they handled the matter so poorly. Needless to say he never did. He claimed that he is a sommelier but had no knowledge of botrytis desert wine when we tried to order a bottle with our desert! Sadly our evening was spoiled.

we were four couples staying there in fan court. It was place for our breakfast also. we took dinner their and were very happy with our decision. The chef took care of our orders very well ( it is always good to meet chef if you are vegetarian and also not taking mushroom etc) he made us very good arrabbiata on his own suggestion. Margherita was really very well made. I am sure if you ask for his choice and suggestions it going to come best and that is what we did. Also it was quite reasonable for 8 people we paid almost use 6 each.
