Friendly and reasonably attentive waitress. Hamburgers were very tasty and generously sized, but were a bit too overdone. Ordered as medium and were well done. Still good though. Pleasant spot and worth a visit.

We had an awesome brunch here - the food is outstanding, very generous portions and of a high standard. Certainly the best croque monsieur in the Cape. Service is great too. Plenty of activities on this estate for young and old.

First, to explain the title. While we had a very pleasant lunch here yesterday, it was spoilt somewhat by the smell of the pig manure blowing across from the neighbouring farm. It's an ok spot, not in the prettiest area and adjacent to massive, humming...More

Had lunch here. The meat board was underwhelming (to put it politely), smoked trout salad was enjoyable. Baked cheesecake is not the best I’ve had - the only thing interesting about the cake is the base, which had a pleasant pecan/almond flavour. The café latte...More

Homemade food at a great price and children can enjoy themselves playing on the grass while parents having a drink.
