Our party of 10 people sat outside on the balcony for lunch. Lovely setting in the gardens and far enough from the main road not to hear the traffic. Very good service and good food with cold beer and wine.

Have regular lunches here, and tonight we decided to come for dinner. If you are looking for good old fashion home cooking and hospitality, this is the place. "Plaas kombuis" even served with old style tin plates. It's regular awesomeness.
