Went here for a late lunch on a very hot Sunday afternoon. We sat outside in the patio under a Bedouin or what you call those tight tents, covering the whole area. The hotel is very old but in good condition and I think they were adding more rooms and redoing the back yard because there was construction going on. Service was very good as was the food. Their wine list is vast, which one would suspect in this vineyard rich area. We opted for the burgers, vegetarian salads and I had a ceasar salad with added grilled chicken. The food took a while to arrive, but we had a great time so no worries about that, and when it came, it was very good. The bill came down to ZAR850 for 6 people, including drinks and coffee and 10% tip. This place must look amazing at night.
