Had a family birthday lunch last Sunday - lovely venue and friendly staff but food disappointing for the price. I chose the duck- was expecting crispy skin and pink flesh. It was overcooked and very unappetising in appearance with a few unspectacular vegetables. The buttery...More

Excellent food, a very relaxing location with a great view. The address, "8" Curry's Post Road may mean 8 km from the turnoff at Howick, which is about right. Do check ahead, they are open restricted days and hours. Well worth the adventure!

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
