This place is just lovely for a lazy lunch with kids, friends and family. The food is great and the place is super child friendly. Service was friendly and efficient. Lovely setting in the garden, and you can also do some tasting of their gin and other liquors. We ordered Pizza, of which the tomato base was just amazing, obviously... More

Great Italian food in a low key environment. Perhaps a bit too much garden style and too little AC to get that extra star. And after lunch/dinner, you can go into the distillery and sample gin and other liquors distilled here.

We had lunch on a hot summer day in the lovely and shady garden of Pappa Grappa. The food, especially the pizzas are great and delicious and there's a good variety of types. But the best part is the kids friendly staff and the playground that is directly in view of the tables, allowing a relaxing time for the parents... More

We made a booking and arrived to find a lovely table under the trees on the lawn! the pizza was really great and so was the service. The children have lost of space to play in a play area with jungle gyms that is fairly new and well kept. Here you can spend an entire afternoon enjoying the wonderful food... More

I read some reviews and saw that apparently Pappa Grappa serves the best steak in the area. So I went there to see if it's true. Low and behold I am still in awe about the quality and taste of the fillet steak. Wow👍🏼🔝🙏🏼😇

Papa Grappa never disappoints. It is our favourite restaurant and the first place we visit when we get to South Africa. Whether you order steak, fish, pasta or pizza it's amazing. The atmosphere, staff, good and ambience make it very special. Keep up the good work.

It's our 4th visit to the area, and although we've purchased grappa from Wilderer, we've never eaten here. What a huge mistake! But luckily rectified yesterday. We arrived for an early lunch and Christian suggested we took a table near the distillery as it was more sheltered from the wind. Shardonnay, our waitron was perfect. She promptly brought 2 of...
