I had heard about the Goatshed and as we would be in the area reserved a table for lunch. I had the lamb and my husband had the pie. Mine was a little cold and consequently a bit greasy. The helpings though were enormous. Staff were friendly

Very nice restaurant with good menu and wines at very affordable prices. Can do wine and cheese tasting as well. Lots of parking. Iconic goats in their own building. Bring the whole family.

Staff is friendly and service is good. Love sitting outside as it is very relaxing. Food is good and the platters to share is nice for couples. They are also child friendly and the goats provide a nice activity for children.

We had a delightful lunch here a couple of years ago - our first visit to the Cape.

A most pleasant lunch on a hot summers day. The menu has a very interesting variety on offer. The portions are large and the prices reasonable. And reasonably priced wine too! It's great to pop into the wine and cheese shop after lunch and pick up a few specials

We stopped in for lunch and had a great meal, good value and a really special spot on a wine estate. Loved the goats who were thoroughly entertaining.
