Due to the lockdown restrictions, we had to have an early dinner at my favourite local restaurant to celebrate my birthday! Every dish was a masterpiece!! Beautifully presented and thought provoking flavours!! The fish course was the highlight for me! The fish was cooked to...perfection and every element on the plate balances in harmony with depth of flavour!! The service was attentive as always! Chris the head chef and Matt the owner popped by our table! Chris very intelligent cooking! Salute you!! Thank you very much for a special birthday dinner!! You guys rock!!🤗💃🏿More

Wow, what an incredibly different and super special experience! I don't want to give too much away, but I can recommend paying Matt a visit for a experience you won't forget! Molecular gastronomy and fine dining shouldn't only be for the rich and famous, and...thanks to Matt, we can all enjoy dinner and a show!More

The service and the athmosphere were god, but I've been disappointed by the food. I've chose the tasting menu to get to try more combinations. I must say that the starter - the Caprese - good and far the best dish of the whole menu...(excellent combination between the goat cheese and the beetroot). I fund the rest very disappointed and not to the standard of fine dining. The fish was dry and too salty, the crumb of the beef takami covered the taste of the meat which was tender, and none of the dessert were fine / sophisticated to me (I tried the chocolate torte, creme brulée and Pana cota). I'm happy to have tried it to make my own opinion, but I will not come back or recommend it.More

Had the most spectacular dinner at Homespun. Service was outstanding - Matt & his team make you feel at home. The food..... Oh where to start I would simply not be able to choose my favourite dish. The handmade prawn dumpling and Matt's Special was...mouthwatering.....Best part is the pricing. You will NOT regret ticking this off your bucket list (need to tick this off a few times for sure)More

They are open for sit down post Covid now and in the winter weeks have...great specials. We will definitely be back again to visit this local gem.More

At last I could visit my favourite local restaurant last Thursday due to the lift of the lockdown ban for restaurants. What a beautiful experience to eat out again!! It was lovely to see Matt and his excellent team! The hospitality was superb and welcoming!!...I ordered my favourite ostrich canapés which was delicious and creamy - packing a punch! The Malay squid was succulent and reminded me of the Bokaap flavours. Intense with that special mixture of South African flavours!! Yummy! Oh my the Matt special was a fillet steak cooked to perfection, juicy and soft. A lot of elements on the plate but all worked in harmony. A very clever dish and I enjoyed it. The brûlée was yummy! I loved the smoke under the dome which definitely create drama and a fantastic show! That is what restaurants are all about! Thank you beautiful people for a beautiful evening and it was splendid to see you all again!More
