Critic's review

Food
Regarded by many as serving the best pizzas in the Deep South; once you’ve tasted the gourmet offerings at this family-friendly spot, you too will agree. There are loads of other moreish comfort-food choices that satisfy every craving – from breakfast-time eggs Benedict to rustic tartines, a yummy homemade beef burger topped with caramelised onions and the deservedly popular mussels. An interesting mix of fusion and Cape flavours and lashings of home-style yumminess keep guests coming back for more. Be sure to leave space for a slice of the home-baked cakes and tarts – delicious!

Wine
From cheap ’n’ cheerful easy-drinking choices to more serious offerings for the connoisseur.

Service
Enthusiastic, patient, informed and efficient.

Ambience
If it’s cold outside, take a table inside close to the fire and admire the view through the large sash windows. Or bag a table on the terrace if it’s sunny and watch the kids run and tumble on the sprawling grass verge.

And...
Visit this eatery’s sibling setup, the Free Range Farm Stall; if you’re dining à deux the popular seafood pan is a must. (VS, September 2010)

  • On the 29 th March,the manager Rejoice and team really ensured that my daughter had a memorable 4the birthday party.
    There was genuine concern and love that the party and my adult guests were well looked after. We were accomadated to move the party to the pizza area and all the little people could be seated in a nice cozy area. The amount paid per child and the treats received was more than we expected. Rejoice had another party but she checked in on us regulary to ensure that we were all ok. This made the day so much more successful and everyone was relaxed. The kids enjoyed the farm area with the animals as well as the outdoor play areas. Really a treat for the parents as they could relax and enjoy the party, and they could see the kids outside. I want to sincerley thank Rejoice and team, NB and the PIZZAS are the best.

  • We went to say goodbye to the current owners who have kept us coming back again and again. We've been going for years and are so sad to see you go. Best of luck.

  • I held my sons 4th birthday party at the Blue Water Cafe and found the event co-ordinator to have very poor public relations skills. When I phoned up to mention this she tried to blame it on the waiter. I may be fussy but I feel that when something special is being held at a place it would be nice for the manager of the venue to make the event just a little bit special. When I arrived the food, etc was in the right place but there was no one to greet us and check up on us during the party. Although the waiter was around I would have expected the manager to at least wish my child happy birthday and pop in once to see if everything was ok. Lastly after being given a quote of R70 per child and R300 for a cake ( that was all on the table for us to serve ourselves), i did not expect to have 10% added on for this service. This is something that should be told to the customer before hand even if it is optional.

  • Visited this superb place again on Sunday and spoke to Graham about this unique spot! He is clearly passionate about the place. I had my favourite - again! The pasta of the day was superb, with Kommetjie crayfish and a superb sauce. This is definitely my best spot for this season.

  • Inspired Cafe King , Graham Isaacson delivers his tasty fare in his two venues on this charming newly-upgraded Imhoff Farm.
    I was chatting to friends who have dubbed itGrahams Town!!
    The reasons maybe amusing , but the evidence of his hard work and creative enthusiasm are obvious!
    The meals at both of his eateries are great!
    Well done

  • We sat in an idyllic setting and ate a really good eggs Benedict and a wonderful coffee. The Capes best kept secret! Ive booked to take a group of friends there next week as the food coming out of the kitchen when we were leaving looked so good. Beautiful presentation and from our experience truly delicious.

  • I have been going to the farm for many years, but after having taken a break because of poor food and service, I was amazed at the new developments and outstanding food upon my return. The new owner certainly has a good idea of what the farm needed. I recommend it. The food is especially outstanding!
