The food is really very good. We haven't had a bad meal there and tested the menu before deciding to host my Mom's 90th birthday lunch. It was fabulous.

Have visited a handful of times over the last two years. Food and service is always good. Saturday night was no different. Really good value for money. Bookings via SMS also simple but effective. Keep up the good work.

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
