My wife and I have been to this wonderful restaurant on a few occasions and never been disappointed. On this occasion, we both ordered the special of fresh hake, string potatos and salad. There was a delicious butter masala sauce for the fish and a fresh salad with superb dressing. The setting by the stream is most relaxing,paricularly as it was not school holidays! Hake is, in my opinion, a much underrated fish and is so often smothered in a heavy beer batter,but this was definitely fresh, and baked. We live nearby and, of all the local restaurants, and we go to quite a lot, this great ' cafe' stands out. It will always be our place of choice in Pietermaritzburg and they desrve all the support which they receive, TonyC Hilton.

Sagewood is a popular eating meeting place. The ambiance is attractive, peaceful and encourages you to relax. The food is delicious, beautifully presented and expertly prepared. The staff are friendly and professional. You feel like you are among family everyone you visit and on leaving, you just know you will be back and are already looking forward to returning. Patrons who follow specific dietary requirements are catered for and all meals offered are focused on healthy living.

We enjoyed an excellent celebratory brunch at Sagewood. Prices are not cheap, but each dish is special and generous and well worth the value. Lovely garden-centre adjacent to the restaurant, but better book as the place is buzzing on a Sunday!
