Matt Schreuder's Homespun is by far one of the restaurant rustic fine dining in Blouberg not to miss. The space has been renovated in a creative way that makes the restaurant appear more spacious.

Food
The food is still creative, beautifully plated and enticing.

For Starters, the beef tataki is a spread of different textures that complement each other. The fillet is juicy and tender encased in a crunchy coating, served with light and crispy tempura onion that are caramelised and sweet and completed by a wasabi mayo and pickled ginger.
Other starter options that look appetising to the eye are the grilled Patagonia squid or the vegetarian deep fried goats cheese.

For mains the new kid on the menu is the Lamb en croute. This lamb neck is cooked for 2hours over high temperature and then the heat is reduced and the lamb is then cooked for 6hours over this low heat. The result off course is an infusion of flavour and super tender lamb. As mentioned the lamb is rich in flavour and encased in phyllo pastry with al dente Julian vegetables – makes one think of a large spring roll.

Another main to consider is the beef fillet that is flame grilled served with sweet butternut wedges and fresh spring onions.

Besides their signature desserts Vahlrona blonde fondant, the chocolate torte Is the best to finish off a great dining experience. This torte is served with a decadent dark chocolate sauce, a banana gelato that taste just like fresh ripe bananas giving a cold sensation to the warm dessert. The fresh tart strawberries and gooseberry garnish cuts the richness and the pecan nuts compliments the banana gelato.

Drinks
Homespun boasts themselves with wine paring of their dishes. They have a wide variety of wines. Other that that the wine list they also have craft beers and craft ice teas.

Service
The service is still topnotch. Well informed, warm and welcoming. The menu is explained to guests with suggestions from the waitron. The guests are sent a confirmation sms for bookings. When guests go to the restaurant for a celebration such as a birthday etc. their table is then decorated with fresh flowers.

Ambience
The space has had a bit of a face lift – looking a little more spacious. The space is intimate and cozy – great for celebrations and romantic dinners. The large mirrors make the space appear larger and the pendant and candle chandeliers look beautiful and give the space a modern touch.

    Delicious and appetising food, beautifully presented. I like that there is not an enormous menu with too many options. And the restaurant decor is intimate yet bustling. Wish I could go there every week.
    We are so lucky to have this amazing restaurant in our neighborhood. Excellent food, wine list, service and ambience. Matt is an excellent host. Waitrons are very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
    Hot date? Book here in advance! I love it.
    wow what a surprise find in Tableview. such a hidden little gem with amazing food, service and vibe. Perfect for a fancy date night or anniversary. The wines are perfectly paired with each meal and conveniently put on the menu as well. The waiter had so much knowledge and we took all her recommendations and were not disappointed! Mouth watering fillet and salmon. Cant wait to go back.
    This restaurant has a really great vibe - the decor is modern but not overdone. Its quite dark, but has fantastic ambient lighting which makes it feel like you're at a really exclusive place. The combination of rich fabrics and textures really relax you. I love that they make you your very own cocktail out of what you like - I've never tasted so many new types of cocktails in my life! The food is always excellent, it tastes fresh and while it is quite "designer" type food, its also not over the top! The staff are always friendly and you can see they love their job.
