Husband took me on a date to this place, I was very pleased. It was a bit cold and I got beautiful soft white blanket. Service was great, not even ones we had to call our waiter, he was around in right time. Food was delicious, had a muscle pot, sauce was to die for. Carry on doing what you... More

What a terrific place to enjoy a long lazy lunch with loved ones. Superb service, a well thought out menu and of coarse the fantastic wines. A special visit indeed.

Wine was spectacular, View was great.. Best thing to eat was the bread, which wasn't on the menu... The rest was average at best... Just lacked any real flavour or creativity.... Service was also average, long between assistance, constantly had to top off our own wine... What also irritates me was that there was items on the menu that was... More

A must visit - stunningly prompt service, beautiful food and scenery. Try the Sauvignon Blanc and beef burger - quite delicious and a cheesecake to die for

Guardian Peak Winery was on my short list for a wine tasting. In spite of the pouring rain, the place looked beautiful. As I noticed they had a nice looking restaurant, I decided have lunch after the wine tasting. That turned out to be a very good decision. The lamb chops and Guardian Peak Summit 2013 were a perfect match.... More

We arrived at 15:20 hoping to have lunch today. We spoke to one of the waiters who will confirm if there is any table available. He spoke to the manageress who did not even look at us or acknowledge our presence and flatly just said no. We found this very rude. The least she could have done was to approach... More

We went here on a whim whilst staying at Spier wine Farm just down the road. The drive along a secluded and rough road was a little alarming but when we arrived we saw that we'd made 100% the right choice. The view from the modern decked restaurant is STUNNING-you could use it in a Lord of the Rings movie.... More

What a great resteraunt, unfortunately we had to sit at the waiting area and have a light lunch rather than the proper lunch but this was even good. the food coming out looked devine and as with all of these establishments in the area, you have amazing views. You must book in advance!!
