A restaurant with an excellent location and wonderful views. Our food was cooked to perfection. The restaurant was full but we were not really aware of all the other people. Despite it being busy we did not have to wait long for our food to arrive. I was especially impressed with our waiter and am sorry that I did not get his name. He made us feel like friends and advised us about which wine would go best with our food. A really nice restaurant to try if you are in the vicinity. Make sure that you get proper directions if you are coming in from the Stellenbosch side, as you cannot then turn off to the restaurant directly from the main road.

It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very surprised at the excellent food and location. We arrived early and did not have a booking, which is recommended. Located right next to a country airfield, you can view small planes flying overhead as you eat your meal. There is a fantastic view of the countryside and Table Mountain in the distance. The food is outstanding and something different. Definitely top quality food and in a class of it's own. Accommodates children with a lovely play area outside.

Wonderful setting, with a jungle gym for the kids too. I had a fillet, and it was incredible. I have not had a fillet this good in years, cooked to perfection. Highly recommended!

We had Cob (Kabeljou) and Fillet. Both were delicious. The waitress gave us good service and we will certainly return

You could drive past this restaurant on the R44 without realising you had missed one of the best dining experiences in Stellenbosch, the food is superb, the staff are wonderful, and the wine selection is outstanding. Probably one of the best kept secrets in the area. This restaurant is a MUST visit.
