Been a regular at Boschendal and all their restaurants, picnics etc, which I had not visited for some time, the venue has been remarkably altered, great ambience and even better views from patio with extensive gardens leading out into the farm.
Good friendly service from a certain Zimbabwe lady.
The place was full, and service was rather eratic ( some of the staff were working their first shift , and that was over a busy Easter week end )
Food was good but not exceptional for the prices asked.
I expected more from this place.

Everything about this restaurant is just wonderful, from the setting and interior design to the wonderful service and the delicious food.
Almost everything is grown on the farm at Boschendal so it is ultra fresh and bursting with flavor.
From the chicken broth to the vegetarian dishes to the roast chicken for 2, everything was divine- not to mention the dessert which was to die for!

Werf is situated on Boschendal, a farm more than 300 years old. Building classic Cape Dutch style. Oaks probably 200 years old and the garden were Werf's salad veggies etc come from very beautiful.
The food is interesting with a selection of a platter for one or two. Wide variety of meat, fish and vegetarian..I had lamb shoulder which was delicious. The other people felt the same about their Pork belly. My grandsons finished their meat platter which was huge.
I still battle with the most restaurants in the Western Province about their wine prices. Is it really necessary to inflate the cellar price by between 200% and 300%? I personally do not agree with is.
