No manager was seen during our two visits to the restaurant for breakfast. Most staff were just not interested in serving guests. Just such a pity for such a lovely hotel and arguably the best golf course in South Africa, if not in the world!More

Description
With its traditional Italian menu, La Cantina treats guests to an authentic Mediterranean culinary experience ranging from homemade pastas to succulent steaks. Its extensive menu includes meat and fish with an extensive wine list and its decadent dessert favourite, the tiramisu. Housing a wood-fired pizza oven, La Cantina serves what guests believe to be the tastiest, thin-based pizzas in town.
