My kids were invited to a party that was held at the play area outside. Lots of space for kids to play and run. Food was awesome. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. We all enjoyed the outing.

The place is lovely in an old fashioned way - just what one would expect from an old farmhouse. However, the food was uninspiring and the music far too intrusive. I had the fish - I think it was Kingklip. It looked a bit raw...and was served on a bed of something and garnished with raw green beans and carrot shavings. Not my best. The guys had tomahawk steaks - huge, but middling quality and a very coarse texture. The lemon cheescake also left a lot to be desired.More

Good food excellent prepared with a good wine collection where you can choose from a selection of fine wines. Dishes are moderately priced with moderate portions. My personal favorite dish is the Tomahawk Steak, perfect for meat lovers.

We used to love visiting this Restaurant but our recent visits have left us disappointed. The food used to be exceptional and the grounds magnificent. Unfortunately there seems to be minimum owner involvement of late and the food, service and grounds upkeep have dropped a...little. We haven't visited them for at least 6 months due to our disappointment.More

We were looking for restaurant with a good rating around the area, which caters for meat lovers as-well. I never order steak but I took a chance and I was not disappointed, it had just the right balance of seasoning. The restaurant is situated inside...an estate, it’s quite and cozy. The ambiance was just okay what stood out for me was the taste of the food.More

I booked for mother’s day and the only option for food was a buffet. The service was slow to respond to requests, the food was average at best. Not somewhere I would go again.More

Lovely restaurant with relaxed, casual atmosphere. I had the Fillet Steak which was done to perfection - and my companions had the Sunday lunch carvery which they said was lovely. Our waiter, although a trainee, attended to us very well and we hope he becomes...a permanent asset to the team. Management were well in view and on hand to lend assistance where needed. We overstayed our welcome well after the restaurant closed - sat on the grass outside under the trees and did much chatting before leaving after dark!More

I was invited to a 50th birthday dinner at the restaurant. Very easy to find and secure venue. The setting of the restaurant is stunning especially during sunset. The restaurant is in an old farm home so lots of space and little private rooms for...a meal. The service is great and very friendly. The wine cellar is good but wines are expensive (minimum 200% higher than Makro wine prices). The menu option for starters, mains and deserts are really great...not a full menu though. We shared a chicken liver starter which was prepared well and the plating was poor to average...so i will go with the taste. For mains we had a fillet with sweet potato mash, and my son ordered a salmon medium to rare and came very well done. The plating was very poor for a restaurant that sets itself as fine-dining. The taste was average and the price was over the top. Not a place i would visit again,.More
