Critic's review

Food
Starters could include a sweet potato and biltong soup and springbok carpaccio. Every single mouthful is an absolute taste sensation, with perfect balance.

For mains, go for the seafood hot pot with squid, cubed line fish, mussels and buttered toasted ciabatta, or the lightly seasoned beef fillet. The beef fillet is divinely tender and the roasted new potatoes in duck fat are cooked to perfection.

End with coffee and the flourless chocolate cake topped with amasi ice cream and honeycomb. It’s light and fluffy, leaving you feeling satisfied but light.

Drinks
All courses have a drinks pairing option and they showcase a range of local wines, sparkling wines and liqueurs.

Service
Efficient, attentive and friendly staff.

Ambience
This is a tranquil space that inspires dreamers and lovers alike. The hotel is decked out in Le Grange décor throughout, and special attention to details has been paid to all elements. The restaurant has special acoustics designed to offer intimate conversations and looks out onto lush gardens and an inviting pool area.

And…
Open to the public and booking is essential

  • Took a friend their for his birthday as the reviews were all so good. I was really excited but, somewhat disappointed. What I didn't like: A bottle of red wine that costs about R159 in the shops cost over R400 The entrance carpet had a huge stain, and a bunch of smaller ones The plants outside the entrance where dying in their dry, dirty pots The lovely pink-upholstered dining room chair I sat in was dotted with dirty marks The restaurant was 80% empty throughout the night All in all, the decor certainly looked a little tired The music system played some jarring rap tunes, which didn't suit the place What I liked: The food was great, really good. It's a set menu with three options for starters, main and dessert. Tho, the single macaron that formed part of my dessert choice was at least 4 months old. lol. The fireplace made the place nice and toasty The staff are super friendly and attentive when they need to be The bar area is small but nice and cosy
