Chef Jonathan Davies is quietly turning this charming country restaurant into one of the hidden gems of the Overberg.

An enticing menu of inventive country cooking with a South African twist. It’s a surprisingly generous menu, with six to eight choices per course, and no shortage of South African inspiration. For starters there’s a playful take on ‘pap en wors’, with a biltong pap croquette and farm sausage, alongside fried waterblommetjies with spicy chakalaka and aioli. A fusion of flavours in all the right ways.

Much of the menu taps into the produce of the region, whether it’s local camembert baked in phyllo pastry or fresh fish from local boats. The catch of the day perfectly cooked, and swimming in a sauce of mussels, celery, apple and cider was simply outstanding. For something simpler, the hearty beef burger topped with cheese and caramelised onion is famous round these parts. If you have room for dessert, give the chocolate custard mousse with moerkoffie stout a whirl.

Interesting wine list focused on Walker Bay estates, with a handful of wines 'imported' from over the mountain to fill in the gaps. Good selection by the glass.

Warm and friendly service. Perfect country hospitality.

Modern country charm, with wonderful views out over the Akkedisberg and surrounding farmlands. A wide hearth at one end to keep things cosy in winter.

Best for…
Languid Sunday lunches in the country

    We have always been great fans of Madré's kitchen and were obviously very disappointed when we found out that the restaurant has closed. Thankfully, being such an amazing chef with a culinary reputation that precedes her, it did not take long for us to find out that Madré is now at the beautiful Stanford Valley Estate (Manor House). We went there twice in December; once for breakfast and once for lunch. It felt like a real Homecoming. Seeing and chatting to Madré again and having the privilege to delight in her amazing food, was, as always with Madré, pure bliss with every morsel a taste sensation. This is complimented by amazing service and Elsabe who makes you feel that you are old friends being warmly welcomed and made to feel extremely special. Definitely one of our favorites in the area!
