The Blacksmith Kitchen is our local go-to for family dinners and large parties. They offer a limited menu, but manage to cover all the bases with excellent pizza, good salads, steak and a killer risotto. The slow-cooked ribs are a firm favorite with our tribe...More

This is always a pleasant spot for lunch on a sunny, Cape Boland day. The seating outside under the oak trees has beautiful mountain views. The menu is limited but everything is prepared well and the service is good.

What an experience 😊 Awesome food and good variety but the view over the vineyards to Paarl and the Groot Drakenstein mountains are breathtaking. Will definitely return again

Blacksmith's Kitchen is a cosy and relaxed bistro-style restaurant, situated in the old blacksmith's cottages on Pearl Mountain. Built in 1747, these two buildings predate the Manor House by some 70 years, and many of their original features have been preserved or reclaimed for use in their renovation. Before this the buildings had functioned as a workshop and tractor shed, and some of these more agricultural trinkets have also been retained in the new building. The restaurant serves a selection of Pearl Mountain and locally sourced wines, and has a Mediterranean-inspired menu, as well as a wood-fired pizza oven. The farm also has a veggie patch which keeps the kitchen supplied!
