The Restaurant is a modern eatery where we bring the freshest produce, finest wines and remarkable views together to create an unforgettable experience. All ingredients are sourced locally, foraged, or grown on the farm.
The views from the tasting room and restaurant are spectacular and that in itself is a reason to visit this estate. It’s a bonus that the food at the restaurant is so delicious. The menu is small, but this does not mean it’s not good. The coffee is excellent too. The service is friendly and attentive and we left happy and full.
(Just a tip: The side order of fries is enough for the table, especially if you have two or three courses. We made the mistake of ordering a portion per person and it was way too much!)
A shame to serve gnocchi with pickled cauliflower described as deep fried cauliflower????
Complained to waitron and no one bothered to address our complaint!!!
WILL NEVER RETURN
We went to the restaurant at Newton Johnson during restaurant week, where they were placed first in the competition the previous year so we were anticipating them to want to hold that title. I am pretty sure after our lunch there they will. I had the most amazing hake I have ever tasted in my life, hake being the fish you don't usually expect much from, I was blown away, it was prepared in a medallion and was similar to an amazing sashimi plate. The views are arguably one of the best of the valley and you can watch the chefs with all their gadgets preparing your feast as well as have a seat next to the smoke burning outside for additional heat in the winter months.
Our experience was totally different to these negative reviews. The food was innovative and excellent and the service was prompt and efficient. The views are spectacular and we would unreservedly recommend it in the Hermanus area.
A spectacular meal in all senses! Each dish very well executed and presented . Truly an evening to remember
