Food was average. Lots of flies and dirty menus. Our waitress, Chrisna, was excellent. She was everywhere and really tried to make our visit enjoyable. Wine was good though

Fabulous steaks and the cherrie on the top are the marrowbones that are available. Have dry aged steak if you can but wet aged steak was very good as well. Comes with either starch or salad.

is simply nirvana for carnivores: grain-fed and grass-fed beef, dry or wet aged, is all aged between 22 and 55 days - plus there’s steak tartare, oxtail, brisket, marrow bones, biltong and beef burgers too. Venison, pork and chicken feature prominently along with salmon, prawns and calamari, and there are also vegetarian options on the menu. Trawling the extensive menu could take a while, enjoy it with a glass of the Estate’s award winning wines. If you love meat as we do, though, this is a little bit of heaven with views to match. Airy, understated European elegance epitomizes the restaurant’s interior, which is glass fronted to showcase the panoramic views from the vineyards and olive orchards to the blue-hued mountains that encircle Wellington. On a sunny day choose a table on the deck and sit side-by-side to enjoy the natural theatre.
