Set on a hill in the middle of a wine estate, this restaurant offers amazing set menu lunches with wine parings from the estate. The views are excellent and the food has a light feel to it. Springbok loin is superb.

We were there for lunch on a Friday. It was not crowded and the day was perfect to enjoy the view. Food was very nice and pairing was great. Some of us did not have wine but still enjoyed it very much
