I had an amazing meal. The staff was very friendly and made it an unforgettable experience. The history of the establishment is remarkable. Wonderful ambience.

These place…this gem is a must visit. It’s ambiance is rich and the food is as divine. We had the pleasure of being served by Kudzai, who’s hospitality and engaging. She recommended all our courses from the artichoke salad and squid and calamari as a...starter to the sirloin and lamb curry as entrees to the bread pudding and chocolate fondant as desserts. The wine and beer selection is extensive and exquisite. We’ll visit again for sure. Special thanks to Chef Stephen - his food is made with so much love and passion that you want more and more. Thank you for the culinary delight!More

As a hotel guest, we eat breakfast at the hotel every morning. The buffet is delicious with a wide variety of things to choose from. The coffee is also superb!

Nice place, very classic interior and the staff were excellent. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is the menu. It's too limited

Received by well-trained, courteous and friendly personnel. Even though the place was packed, we not once had to look or wait for assistance. The food was of thé best quality, exquisitely prepared and mind-blowingly tasty!

Superb service - generous portions of simple yet delicious food enjoyed with a few glasses of red wine all of which are extremely well priced. Worth visiting for all occasions. The music that was inaudible for most of the evening was the only disappointment as...this could have added to the atmosphere that certainly could have been more viby on busy Friday night. Highly recommended though!More

A stunning meal here with my wife. We shared calimari and gnocchi starters and then mains of fillet steak and kingklip. Each dish was a taste sensation as well as being beautifully presented. The fillet steak was the highlight and one of the best we'd...ever tasted! Friendly service and nice drinks options too. Will hope to come back next time we visit!More

Unfortunately, the pizza we have ordered was very disappointing, It was not hot, the crust was not crispy and the toppings completely overloaded. The Steak was very average and below our expectations. We are often in Stellenbosch but this restaurant was not our best choice...!More

Hi Linsey, I've always been lucky enough to get a table without booking but I would recommend that you do book just to make sure. Believe me; you're in for a treat. My personal favourite: the lamb - perfection!! PS. Don't... More
