    We are regular visitors to this gem. Setting is spectacular with amazing views of the mountains and the well designed and manicured gardens. However the quality of the food leaves a lot to be desired. Five of us ate on a recent Friday evening with 3 portions of Thai curry and two beef burgers. Without exception the food was found to be poor. The curry ranged from inedible to just plain tasteless. All were ordered with the extra chicken which was difficult to find. I had the burger which I ordered medium rare....and emphasised this point to the waitress. The beef served was so overdone that it was as tough as rubber and inedible. I should have known as I had ordered one on a previous visit the week before (I thought they could not seriously destroy a burger twice in a row), and here they delivered a chicken burger in error, and returned with a beef burger within 3 minutes. This was also inedible. They need to take a serious look at what is going on in the kitchen. We will return .....but for drinks only.

    The service was impeccable and wine list had an overwhelming selection of superb choices. Great listening to live pianist. My only critique is with the food - the caprese tartlet vegetarian option (yawn) was so dry that in fact I could not cut through this. The "filling" - just melted cheese - not what I was expecting from a R69 starter. Not sure I will be heading back there on account of the food.

    I attended a friend's wedding last night at the Vineyard, and was extremely disappointed to see veal jus on the set menu for the wedding reception. I had thought that the Vineyard was more aware of the serious ethical problems with sourcing veal - baby calves that are imprisoned in the dark in order for their flesh to remain soft and pale. How can this establishment pride themselves on having "free range" chicken on their menus, when they are quite happy to serve veal?

    A gorgeous, tranquil settting overlooking the garden where you can enjoy high tea as well as sushi for more modern palates. So peaceful and soothing, it’s almost as good as a visit to the hotel spa itself!
