“Good food in a unique spot”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Off the beaten path - pretty drive to get there, and that's all part of the outing, right? In a cabin-like house beside a small pond/lake. The food was delicious, not inexpensive, but worth a second visit.

“Wonderful location, food and staff”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

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

“country comforts”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

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.

“Hobbitt cottage”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

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.

“Country Gem”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

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.
