My husband was so right taking me here for my birthday.. Lunch was so special. Starting with the friendly and knowledgeable staff, innovative menu and a wine list of note, offering a huge selection covering all the great wines from SA and great wine by the glass selection as well!! The chicken terrine with red wine poached shallot, lovely!! The pork belly with honey and mustard, just fantastic, accompanied by perfectly cooked parsnips!! We ended with the cheese board and apple souffle, coconut sorbet.. Perfect.. Just perfect. The menu changes often as they have a sustainable and local approach to cooking, which we love.. If we stayed longer, we would've surely tried the next menu, but will be back for sure! Thank you!

A phenomenal dining experience. Each course was delightful and full of little surprise taste experiences. They use many ingredients grown on their own property or from the surrounding neighborhood so the ingredients are the freshest of the fresh! Book well in advance as they are extremely busy and popular.

There are very few places in South Africa which surprised us as much as Hartford House. Not only is the scenery breathtakingly beautiful but there is a serenity when walking amongst the gigantic old trees in the lovely gardens.

This functional farm is a colonial jewel and well worth driving off the beaten track to find. The restaurant has been in the Top 10 a few times and its reputation drew us to this hidden delight. The service was absolutely amazing and we were treated like long lost friends, with warmth and hospitality. The food exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it to any and every culinary-adventurer.

The presentation of good food is not only achieved by serving the most beautiful and tasty food ... but it is also achieved through serving a wonderful and enjoyable experience ! ... and that is exactly what they perfected ...

We will most definitely be back ... for a longer visit.
