The Blacksmith Kitchen tucked away at Pearl Mountain was a wonderful and delightful discovery. The wines are excellent, thoroughly enjoyed the wine tastings and Jody's knowledge and enthusiasm contributes to a wonderful experience. The food was really tasty. We shall be back.

The restaurant is located on the hill from Paarl with a great view over the valley and the vineyard. Ok wines and good food complete the picture of this restaurant. Nice shady terrace with big trees cooling you down.

Nice place . Friendly staff. Good but not terribly exciting menu. Nice wine . Great for groups as the ambience is unbeatable. Would love to eat in South African restaurants that also would dare to sample local cuisine not just the local Products

A little gem tucked away amongst the vines and a super spot for a casual lunch on supper. Good value for money, great food, the staff are wonderful, and we especially enjoyed Priscilla who served us yesterday.

Blacksmith's Kitchen is a cosy estate restaurant, secretted away in the historic blacksmith's cottages on Pearl Mountain. Constructed in 1747, these two buildings predate the Manor House by some 70 years, and great effort has been take to preserve their original character. Indoor and outside seating are available, offering spectacular views of the Paarl Valley below. Executive Chef Douglas Adams’s menu is a fusion of classic Mediterranean and local influences, and all effort is taken to use the best locally-sourced fresh produce - including from the Pearl Mountain vegetable garden. Both of the Pearl Mountain wine ranges are also available from the wine list, or from the cellar door.
