“Such a shame”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We had experienced a wonderful meal at this restaurant in May 2012 and so were excited about going again in April this year. Although the service was good the food was very disappointing - not the unique and intense flavours we remembered from our previous visit and we felt that the prices were really too steep for what were below average meals.

“Outstanding lunch in the winelands”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We enjoyed an absolutely first-rate Sunday lunch here: a superb setting outdoors in a relaxed atmosphere; excellent selection of good value wines; attentive service from our waiter Gerald; and a diverse range of courses with lovely flavours and sauces complementing the various dishes. The foie gras starter was superb, and the steak mains were outstanding, although the Karoo lamb was a little on the tough side, as the only complaint. Desserts were diverse and excellent too. We would highly recommend it.

“Foodie friendly”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This is a beautiful place for lunch while out at the wineries for a day. The setting and presentation of the food is perfect for any foodie. We didnt love the wines from their personal winery but that's ok since they carry plenty of wines from outside wineries as well. The tomato salad was beautifully unique, the prawn risotto was delicious, and the springbok was very nice. Definitely make reservations ahead of time!

“Random Diner”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Wow wow wow wow!!!

Excellent food, wine and dessert. Waiter staff were clued up on the food, taste and pairing of wine - as well as a passion for the food. Will definately return. Well worth the money.

“Nice food. Good service. Fab Location”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Overal a very good experience. Why not excellent? The food did not blow us away. It was very tasty, good portion size but something was missing. Can't tell you what.
If you want to to eat a nice meal with great ones in a perfect location, it is a great place to go. If you want to be blown away, go to the Test Kitchen in Cape Town.
