Don’t forget to book a table before your departure. Sundowner is recommended. The staff is very friendly and the interior design is modern and very cosy.

Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience, good food, nice wine and friendly service. Would recommend trying to get there for sunset to enough the view. Enjoyed a bottle of the flagship director's blend, and some of the nicest springbok I've experienced. Well worth making a booking.

If you go to Stellenbosch you NEED to stop there! The place is really nice with a fantastic view on the vineyards. Food was great with a very professional service for a normal price.
