    Food was good. Calamari with rice was very tasty. The chicken schnitzel with cheese sauce was a big portion. The cheese sauce was really tasty. Price above average. Hostess wall around checking. Service was good but when it got busy it was slow.

    Excellent position, wonderful cottage. Very good food in restaurant! What a wonderful trip to get there. And we enjoyed going into the quaint town of Clarens, Shop, lunch and then go back to the quiet lodge. Watching the bunnies run freely around the gardens!
