This is one of our regular haunts. The staff are always very attentive and the chef produces excellent food without trying to be too artistic. Outside seating is great on a hot day. Views are out to paddocks where the Studs horses and foals are in situ. Great value for money.

We visited with some overseas visitors, there were 6 of us for lunch. Guardian Peak is a favourite venue of ours whether for lunch or dinner and it didn't disappoint. The service and food are always excellent, with nothing too much bother. The starter portions are quite large so 2 of us shared the duck pancake rolls, more so we... More

I booked for a birthday lunch for 20 people. The booking process was seamless - a surprise considering how sticky some restaurants can be when it comes to large bookings (insisting on deposits or set menus). Some people arrived for lunch late and there were also small children - a challenge the waiters handled very well. The service itself was... More

A return visit for lunch with friends after 18 months and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and the waiter offered us a wine tasting while we waited at no cost. We all chose different items from the menus and all were good complimented by a very nice chardonnay (not from Guardian Peak surprisingly)

Positive: The restaurant is beautifully positioned with great views. The wine is good and reasonable. Negative: One table had a small child who made such a noise that it upset other guests. The meal was average and overpriced.

We went for a light lunch and it was delicious, I had the beetroot stack and my husband had the blue cheese and pear salad. Service was friendly and efficient and the views are wonderful. We sat on the outside terrace but the inside area has huge picture windows so you still get the views. Wine prices are very reasonable... More

Had a wonderful meal on a Friday evening here. Wonderful house sauvignon blanc, along with tasty reds to go with main courses. The starter Karoo Lamb bbq ribs were a highlight of the whole trip for me.
