We ate here and had a wonderful meal. We just got here in time before the kitchen closed (3PM). I would highly recommend this restaurant. I think it was one of the best we visited while in S Africa.

We visited here from a fantastic experience at Eikehof, so perhaps had high expectations. The lady who managed the wine tastings was very polite but difficult to understand and seemed to have very little knowledge. The wine was good, but the whole experience was somewhat...More
