Critic's review

Gregory Landman

Food
Apparently Cosecha means ‘harvest’ in Mexico, and that is exactly what one gets here. The showstopper is the guacamole made right at your table, made as spicy as you like or toned down. The large mortar and pestle mashing the avo and other ingredients is just the thing to whet your appetite. It is served with warm tortilla chips and you can add bacon or cheese to make it almost a full meal.

Other starters include tacos with shredded pork or excellent ceviche with prawn and citrus as well as chipotle meatballs and irresistible serrano-wrapped prawns.

Try the beef enchiladas, nice and rich, or the fish tacos with a citrus salsa in homemade tortillas for main courses and add a side of patatas bravas to make it all go with a swing.

Once you have eaten like this you will never think of Tex Mex food in the same way.

Drinks
The excellent wines of the estate are served at good prices as well as others from this famous wine region.

Service
Charming and easy-going. The owner is always around to make sure things tick perfectly.

Ambience
The large veranda overlooking the gardens with just the right amount of lush foliage to shield one from the fierce summer sun is the perfect place to be when you want to relax with the right companions.

And…
Do a wine tasting beforehand and decide what you would like to drink – take some home to prolong the experience.

  • I absolutely love Cosecha! The location is relaxed and pretty, and the decor fresh and vibey. Of course, the reason for coming all the way out to Paarl is for Cosecha's yummy Mexican food. Order the guacamole, which they make fresh at the table - a great starter! The mains are very generous - I had the chicken tortilla and took half of it home for another meal. Previously I've had the pork carnitas, which are a real winner. Our food took rather a long time to arrive.... which is fine to a certain degree when you know it's being prepared fresh. However, this took just too long. On the plus side, even though we did not complain, the manager came to our table and offered humble apologies and a complimentary bottle of wine. This is what good restaurant service looks like. Don't worry - we'll definitely be back!
