This beautiful gem is bit off of the beaten track but it is well worth the effort. The setting is beautiful, the menu is small but interesting and the food is spectacular. The only drawback was no espresso coffee

We had lunch there a few days ago with friends (six of us) as part of a Groupon deal (now defunct). Apart from a snag with our Groupon vouchers which was badly handled by inexperienced management, we all had a very enjoyable lunch. The setting is relaxing under great oak trees, the service was friendly and efficient, and the food... More

My wife and I and two other couples had lunch there the other day. The setting is very pretty. It was a warm day so we sat under the trees. The welcome was professional and the service was excellent throughout. We all had three courses and tried various dishes. They were ALL absolutely delicious. We had a bottle or two... More

Have had Sunday lunch there twice now and both times the food was exquisite and the service excellent. Both times the lamb shoulder was so tender you did not need a knife to eat it. Not to mention the duck fat roasted potatoes. Really superb food and the location is very child friendly.

A surprise little find, having had a morning out the kids were a little hungry so instead of taking the road to Muratie thought we would try out Knorhoek. Even though time was ticking on and they seemed full, we were still accommodated. They did not make us feel we were imposing at all. A stunning meal, well worth the... More

Went there for a special occasion, was so disappointed, there was worms under the table, not just 1 or 2 like 20 and when I brought it to their attention they said yes they currently have a problem with worms, it put me off everything and I know I love the Bistro Style set menu but the food was ruined...

Our first time at this restaurant. We went on a weekday for lunch and were warmly received. We used a Groupon voucher for a 3 course meal and everything was explained to us. Food was terrific, portions were very generous and wine by the glass was very good value. The vegetarian options were sufficient and the bread service was particularly... More

Myself and a few friends had a gorgeous Sunday lunch at Towerbosch. The set menu offers fresh farm style food ala lamb shoulder, sirloin and roasted potatoes- the perfect family lunch. The setting is beautiful and the service was sharp. Absolutely loved it and will go back for sure.
