I have been dining & staying here for over 10 years and its always been great. The overnight package with dinner & breakfast is a bargain and saves the taxi home. Menu changes fairly regularly with the exception of a couple of famous deserts.

A local winery recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. The setting was beautiful in the bush away from the road. The food and wine was excellent. They grow and bottle their own wine as well as raise the pigs that end up on the menu . I would highly recommend Shakey Tables if you are looking to... More

Great food and personable service. The homegrown pork was excellent and well worth eating. Even being served the wrong main (which I didn't notice until the dessert menu came out, it was the that good) it was a great evening. Enjoy the experience before it closes at the end of the year.

My husband and I had dinner at Shakey Tables on Friday night and we are both extremely disappointed that we've only just been there and the restaurant is closing in December. The food was absolutely amazing. I'm always impressed when the food comes out hot as we've had many luke warm meals, but at Shakey tables everything was perfect. The... More

Shakey Tables is very expensive and therefore you would expect the food to be way above the ordinary. We don't mind paying big dollars but then we must have high expectations. Unfortunately our expectations were not met. I love bouillabouse and have been fortunate to savour bouillabouse in Southern France where the dish is considered the masterpiece of Provence cooking....

We visited Shakeu Tables for the weekend dinner. Every single dish was incredible and made with love. Beef carpaccio with the wild mushrooms for the entre sooo yummy and fresh. Our favourite was the pig... For sure little pig had a happy and loved life because it was so tender and flavour was unforgettable. We ordered all desserts and all... More

Good atmosphere, music and service. Food was very tasty and well prepared. Bread baked on the premises was fabulous. If you're a soup lover in cold weather, nope nothing on the menu (albeit a minor issue).
