Entertained two International couples and were treated to yet another fantastic experience. The signature dish (Duck) was once again of the highest quality in taste and presentation. Most certainly one of our favourite restaurants in the heart of the winelands

We had the roast duck and salmon, it was delicious! The duck was nice and moist, and the Van der Humm sauce was excellent.

We met some friends here for breakfast and it's such a lovely setting. One of the few places that has a menu Sunday mornings rather than a buffet. Service was good. Food was very good. And the views are stunning!
