We went to this Restaurant because of a recommendation. The service was excellent but I am afraid we did not really enjoy the food. I think on reflection it was probably the choices we made!

As many other wine farms in the area, lots of money is spent on the estate and for visitors. Grande Provence made it really nice, it's cosy and thought through. Especially outside in the patio where there's even an open fire burning. So it's with great expectation you sit down to enjoy the dinner. There's where it goes all wrong.... More

What a treat to visit here. Beautiful surroundings, stunning decor and art. Unfortunately, we were greeted rather disappointingly. A slight 'argument' that we didn't have a reservation, my husband literally had to find the confirmation email to confirm we did, the 'manager' found our name and told us somebody had ticked the incorrect guests. Not our problem. No apology. Sit... More

It's a four-course menu at a fixed price - each course was delightful, with the inevitable 'amuse bouche' to intersperse them. Although a very upmarket place, it's not 'up-its-own-nose' - we ate outside as it was glorious, warm evening...very attentive but discreet service. The chef's 'recommended' glasses of wine are quite expensive...better to buy a bottle or two (we had... More

Simply right up there with the best meals we've ever had. Wonderful fresh ingredients, great presentation and complemented by a fantastic wine selection. Now place that in the context of the spectacular courtyard setting complete with trees adorned by fairy lights and a roaring log fire, and you're left with a truly memorable experience. In a town packed with culinary... More

Again the 'Tuk Tuk' suggested this to us and didn't disappoint - suggest at least 1 hour the the tuk tuk will be back for you, no need for a designated driver, good variety of tastings and food for all budgets.

We spent 16 days doing the garden route and this restaurant just about topped the list of many places we visited. Having booked an outside table a month earlier we were concerned about the unseasonably cold weather, and although the restaurant was busy they complied with our last minute request to eat inside. Lovely room, somewhat more formal than most... More

Beautiful location, one of the must see spots on the winelands. But the staff in the restaurant section would rather see no customers than a full house. They try their best to not get you a table, and if you do get one, just leave you there waiting ages for an order, or a wine refil. And very unfriendly. Food... More
