A small fairy cottage in the forest that doubles as a home and a restaurant. The food is always amazing and I like that I don't have to wade through a menu trying to decide what to eat. Brett decides what you should eat with...More

Best food I have eaten in South Africa - such a warm atmosphere. Incredible dinner - well worth it. Brett really welcomes you into his home, it's incredible that all the food is cooked on a wood stove. We will be back again soon.
