Quite a drive from Cape Town for lunch but food and service makes it worthwhile. Very interesting salads for starters (lots of herby flavours) followed by lamb and pork main dishes of high quality. The only negative was the large group of smokers outside whose smoke filtered into the eating area constantly

what a lovely locations....but better still what a lovely simple menu...well not quite...all the ingredients are simple but they are cleverly blended and mixed in an order not readily recognisable.
The overall result is something quite special.
This combination provides a most pleasant food and drink experience with very much a country backdrop.

Brilliant setting which reminds me of a Hobbitt cottage. The main courses were spectacular The Lamb shank was regarded by my son as the "best he has ever had". Great coffee to round off the meal. The only disappointment was my daughters destert which was ordinary.

It is hard to put into words this piece of paradise set high up a mountain side in an unassuming renovated cottage. The food is fantastic, packed with flavour and beautifully presented. Combine this with great service, its a winning formula that will have you traveling back up the valley to do it again.

Beautiful location far up the valley and never mind the bumpy farm road that leads up to the restaurant, it is easy driving in an ordinary car.
The food is delicious and on the two occasions we went in two months the standards were the same. Plenty of choice and a wine list that won't break your pocket.

All round worth every minute of the drive. Superb.
