I must say beautiful gardens, friendly staff and a really well cooked Sunday buffet lunch which included tea and coffee. A good choice of meat and fish and certainly enough for vegetarians. Please do try the neighboring Lourensford wines. Highly recommended and one of the best Sunday buffets in the Cape !
