OK, so here is the bottom line. Located within the Kievits Kroon country estate, we ate here during a recent stay at the estate. (We have also eaten at Granita many times over the past several years.) We had both lunch and dinner during our stay. The food was excellent. There is a new young chef whom I believe is... More

We stayed at Kivitskroon on the weekend of 30 July 2016 for a romantic weekend, which unfortunately was ruined by the fine dining experience at Granita. First off, courses came too fast with the first course being served barely minutes after bread had been served. Then the third course arrived before the second course had been served! The original waitron... More

The lunch was a 5 course menu with our booked SPA menu. Portions were fine but a 5 course lunch menu was too much for me. The food is fine but nothing special. It is a pitty that they don't serve a la carte food.

I apologise that I have only just seen this review. I'm assuming you booked the Laid Back Sunday package which aims to give our guests some pampering and indulgence before the week begins. That is why we include the gourmet 5-course lunch. The normal spa lunch offers a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts. ALAN O'LEARY, MANAGING... More

We were a party of 4 and had reservation at Granita and spa treatment afterwards on the 24 Jan 2016 at 12:30. We took wine pairing with our meal.

Really good fine dining experience. Portions were perfectly sized and the wine pairing went down well. Service from Louis was exceptional. We didn't have a booking but they managed to put us in the cellar, which was actually great, because it was very private. My fiancé and I really enjoyed our evening.

OK, so here is the bottom line. This is Fine Dining at its best. Located within the main building at Kievits Kroon conference and resort center. The food is creative and excellent both for lunch and for dinner. Very nice wine list. Service can vary from very good to just adequate - but don't let that keep you away. Order... More

Last week we went to Granita Signature restaurant to spoil ourselves. We received a cosy corner in the cellar, with efficient yet unobtrusive service. You need to have time as this outing is at least 2 hours, as they bring beautiful food which you enjoy with a wine pairing. As I dont know wines I like it when the restaurant... More
