    This is my new favourite restaurant - I love the view from the deck, the strawberry beer, good and affordable selection of wines and the food is amazing. The Fat Tony pizza is superb :-)

    Shocking bad service!!! We ordered 3 of the Beer tastings. 2 arrived after quite a long time. We waited for the 3rd one to arrive and after 20 min we enquired about the 3rd one and the waiter said they do not have enough glasses, sorry.
    I cancelled my order and needless to say the remaining 2 orders were warm and were not consumed. I requested to speak to the manager and after 10 min he arrived (after I requested a second time to speak to him). I said I would like to bring the following to his attention merely to make him aware of the shortage of glasses for him to address in future and I was told that I must remember that they are busy and do not have enough glasses. Honestly poor communication skills and a general lack of enthusiasm.

    Food arrived and I think that if someone orders ribs, that one should get more than 2 pieces, merely my opinion.
    While we were having lunch they were busy with construction and plastering of walls.
    We asked twice for tomato juice and once it arrived it did not have a cap on, but a piece of tin foil.
    Next to us was a baby chair with an ashtray on it. Out waiters clothing was dirty, not ironed and had pen stains on the pocket.

    I’ve taken photos of this and are more than willing to send this through.
    This surely is an establishment that will not see me or my 4 guest ever again

    We went here last night, after a long drive on the road. Friends recommended it. What a fabulous place and menu! This style of food (tapas, sharing platters) and drink (local ales and lagers - fab) is exactly what the area needed. Beautiful setting, wonderful idea stunning views.
    Will definitely be back.

    A long awaited Tappas style restaurant in the Winelands! Get there at sunset to soak in the views of the mountains across the colourful scarecrows in the strawberry fields!
    The menu has a delicious selection of Tapas and pizzas. A novel addition is the interesting desert Tapas, which we have not tried yet.
    The calamari,serviche and pulled beef sandwhich/burger were all beautifully presented and delicious.
    The pizzas are generous and for Tappas, ideal to share. Unusal & interesting toppings include local cheeses and nuts.
    The wine-list is short and fairly well represented, but we would like to see more of the neighbouring producers represented. The list of local miro-brewery beers is interesting, we tried the beer tasting where 8 generous sample glasses were offered in 2 flights of 4. A tasting was an adequate accompaniment to the tappas. Try the 'real' ginger beer, deliciously refreshing, but a little sweet to accomany the food.
    The service staff are friendly and professional, but the service from the kitchen is unacceptably slow. On a warm night mosquitos were a problem, so arm yourself with some repellant! Despite the latter negatives, we'll be back as 'regulars'!
