Had lunch here. Unfortunately, we waited 1.5 hours for our main course. We took our own wine. Corkage was reasonable. I had the fillet with pepper sauce. It was sublime. Highly recommend it. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The white chocolate cheesecake was delicious.

It’s a hidden gem of paarl. The view is magnificent. Really like the wine especially the rose for summer and the merlot for winter. Friendly staff and great snack platters! This place shows the Paarl.

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.
