Critic's review

Thulisa Martins

A great outing for locals and tourists with beautiful views and a peaceful experience.

Beautifully plated with good portion sizes, the food is overall pleasant. For starters, try the Tako yaki, filled with Octopus this Japanese starter is light and crisp, served with a creamy Japanese mayonnaise, spring onion, katsuyobushi, pickled ginger and wakame which ads a complimenting salty flavour. The octopus snacks are served with a fresh and crisp radish salad beautifully plated on a stone plate. Another starter to note is the parmesan and ricotta dumplings, green peas, asparagus, king oyster and lemon foam.
The pork belly with crispy salty crackling, beetroot and palm sugar with rum reduction is a definite recommendation. Slow cooked, tender and full of flavor served with a parsnip, pistachio and lemongrass. One can also order the Sous vide dusk, coconut, pickled litchi, red curry, plum and duck dumpling. The Jerusalem artichoke tortellini with pear, gruyere, pine nuts, king oyster and cumin noisette is a great option.
For the sweet tooth, the rich chocolate bomb has a hidden center mousse with a biscuit layer for a perfect crunch and a butterscotch that ads a yummy gooey center. This is then served with a tart berry sauce and a light homemade ice cream and cocoa nibs. Another dessert to consider is the warm brandy tart with vanilla Chantilly and ginger.
Guests could also end off with a cheese board.

Only wines from Diemersdal are available and guests could also participate in wine tasting to try out some of the different wines available at the farm.

Even though the servicing staff is friendly, with wealth of knowledge for the dishes and are welcoming. The kitchen is very small - it’s advisable for guests to order quickly as the food can take a while to be ready.

A peaceful farm style atmosphere with amazingly beautiful views of the vineyards, a small dam and greenery. White wooden tables with sun umbrellas giving a picnic vibe in the outside setting. Yet the interior is cozy, small with trendy small plants on tables and wine displays along the side of the wall.
