Very good selection of wines. Prices are good but dont just buy...look for specials. Fresh produce. Lots of local sauces and pickels. Overall not a very good looking place but nice.

This restaurant has changed dramatically since we first went there and we've been a couple of times prior to it changing. It used to be more of a 'coffee shop' atmosphere but is now two different enterprises the one of which sells craft beers and gone is the welcoming atmosphere that once existed.

If you love strawberries and choosing the best ones to nibble on then this place is definitely for you. We arrived early to avoid the heat and the rush due to the time of year. We were able to pick four pink buckets of beautiful strawberries and even managed to squeeze in a game of putt putt afterwards. A definite... More

Our December vacation was closed off with a visit to this lovely family friendly farm, besides 1 small hiccup, the day was really lovely. Good weather kept us picking strawberries until our containers were over flowing. The children's play area kept the children well busy, with lots to do. The basic food menu at the kiosk, is actually really good... More

During our three months in South Africa we came here three times. The first and second time we picked three big containers (45 rand each) and especially the second time, at the height of the season in mid December, the strawberries were simply the best we've ever had! The last time, roughly a week ago, the farm was so so... More

Very much enjoyed our visit to this farm, dotted with many different scarecrows. You choose your bucket size depending on how adventurous you feel, and pay for that. The strawberries you pick are then paid for. As January is nearing the end of the season we had a little trek to the part of the farm where strawberries were still... More

Worth every cent and the shop is much cheaper with jam and preserved fruit than up the West Coast! Food prepared on-site is also delicious😃

Don't waste you time going for this. There are hardly any strawberry's and you have to walk about a kilometer to a field which you allowed to pick. I was not allowed to go with my kids that are 10 and 11, because I didn't have a bucket. Then was subject to abuse by staff because I didn't want my... More

Great to pick your own strawberries an eat them, my family enjoyed this, it was a very short and quick time out and we picked many strawberries. Great wine farms in the vicinity as well for all to enjoy.
