We did dinner here on 1 November. Food was great but wine highly overpriced. Klein Steenberg was R170. At the wine shop on the same farm a few hundred meters away its R54. Probably to milk the tourists.

We did not eat in the restaurant save for room service and breakfast but both were delicious and the setting is absolutely stunning. Very peaceful and relaxing breakfast. Perfect.

Loved the decor and artwork! The risotto is huge so order to share. Be sure to try the apple dessert: one of the best desserts I've ever had. We all had the steak tartar starter and were quite blown away!

Excellent cuisine with a superb wine list. Had the Prawn and Salmon starter which was rather delicious. Main course I settled for the Lamb Rack which was prepared to perfection.
