We spent a few hours at Melon Rouge, they have good Cappuccino and Carrot cake, it was nice and peaceful and we then browsed through all the old antiques and trinkets that they have in the old house, nice way to spend a few hours.

I love the courage of a small menu. My wife had lamb and mint and I doubled up with an oxtail and a steak and kidney pie, proper pastry, sumptuous filling, lovely surroundings and very friendly service

Relaxed and casual eatery below olive trees. Good service good ambience and excellent bobotie. Take time to explore the gallery and antique stoor or just sit and relax and enjoy the silence
