Lovely setting, very relaxed atmosphere, lovely food. Great out door seating area under the trees where you can watch the village life go by.

It was pouring with rain when we arrived, so we had to sit inside instead of under the big tree on the deck. Service was efficient - and the food was great - especially the cold smoked trout. We will be back as we live only two hours drive from Haenertsburg

Decided to have a late lunch as we arrived late. The staff and service were outstanding as well as the "healthy" portions of the dishes they served. Not many places nowadays offer meals (steaks) and drinks for two for under R250-00. Can highly recommend a stopover. You will not be disappointed.
