A lovely place and depending on what you order it can be great or a disappointing. For me don’t order their pizzas. Super thin, not much toppings and very little cheese. A bit pricey too. Lovely view of Paarl.

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.

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.
