Food
First to arrive is a serving of melt-in-your-mouth Middle Eastern lavash flatbread with new-bean hummus, followed by two complimentary canapés. The bobotie samoosa and cheese churros kick off the dining experience on just the right umami note.

For starters you won’t go wrong with the flaky smoked snoek, prepared with oyster cream, fish kaiings and Malay onions. It’s a mild and fresh dish, setting the scene for the dining experience to follow.

You’ll be rewarded for choosing the springbok rump with mieliepap, chakalaka, buchu and honey jus for the sheer joy of the combination of flavours, but the taste sensation that is the lamb rump, morogo and rooibos jus is perfection on a plate. The expertly cooked lamb – with a thin layer of crisp and juicy fat on the one side of the medallions – may entice you to disregard all manners and lick the plate clean.

For dessert, the coffee parfait with hazelnut praline, cocoa nibs and tonka-bean ice cream is a sweet sensation and must-have for coffee-lovers.

Drinks
Each dish on offer is paired well with a wine from the estate, but you could also choose a bottle from the wine list, which adds one or two wine options from France and Hungary, as well as various other drinks. The tea selection is definitely something to have a look at, featuring a green tea infused with Japanese sour cherries.

Service
In a word: excellent. The dining experience starts prior to arrival, with a courtesy confirmation call earlier in the day, and extends to a warm and welcome reception at the wine estate’s front gate.

Ambience
On a cold wintery night, the intimacy of the high-backed leather chairs –
cocooning you and your dining party in privacy – along with the ambient noise of the fire licking away in the fireplace make this a cosy and plush affair. Make a quick stop in the art gallery, or admire South African sculptor Anton Smith’s work in the gardens before you leave.

Best for…
Celebrating a milestone or anniversary with your significant other.

    We had a lovely Sunday lunch. The food was well prepared and arrived promptly.
    We enjoyed dinner there on Friday 01/11/2018. The ambiance was good and so was the service. The food was delicious. The waiters do not give you enough time in between the courses and we felt a bit rushed because as soon as you finish the starter, the mains arrives and as soon as they take that the dessert is served. Overall a beautiful & cosy restaurant.
    The food was delicious and beautifully plated. My only complaint was that we were seated in a gallery section that became bitterly cold in the late afternoon.

    My wife took me here for a nice birthday dinner on Friday and we had a great time. Excellent food and service and the ambience is great with the nice fireplace. Oh and they make a brilliant Shiraz.

    Very nice place with most incredible food. Wines were good too.
