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 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.
