An oasis of gourmet cuisine in deepest Mpumalanga. The restaurant is run by its owner, Tanja Ruf, and her personal attention to detail shows in everything from the warm welcome visitors receive through to guests’ individual requirements. Mouth-watering cuisine is offered with continental and mediterranean dishes from our a-la-carte menu served with only the finest wines from our well-stocked wine cellar. Fun-dining with fondue and raclette may be enjoyed in the privacy and irresistible romantic ambience of our wine cellar.
