Non motivated and untrained staff, slower than molasses required infinite patience. The food was okay, the view and atmosphere superb. The wine list comprehensive. The duck parade was awesome. Certainly worth another chance.

If you want something different with personal attention, excellent wine prices and quality food, this place is for you.

Do not leave without trying the tomato tart!

Ate here a few years ago and remember having an excellent recommendation of wines plus a very well prepared and tasty meal + Dessert . Driving in Stellenbosch today my partner and I decided to try this again and unfortunately just not the same. Mains came with MINIMAL sides like seriously one or two carrots a bean and a blob of bland mash. Duck was cooked well and tasty,fillet not bad but small. After a main at 130 - 150 one would expect a bit more. High prices not justified at all. Also no appearance by the Chef who was so instrumental the last visit into making it a memorable afternoon.Hate being negative in anyway but many other restaurants in Stellenbosch and surrounds that offer far higher quality and better value. A pity...

The restaurant is situated in one of the most tranquil settings, just a few minutes away from a busy highway. The service is personal, efficient and friendly. The menu consists of the standard meat, fish, poultry, and one might expect more of a variation to stall predictability.
I would also expect a more knowledgeable suggestion of wine pairing with the meals, since this is a wine estate. Otherwise, a pleasant dining experience.

Lunch for two on a cold winters day in a period farmhouse with a nice log fire. Just went for mains which were chosen after a delightful description from Chef Michael. Really great food and great wine. We will come back for more.
