Had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon with the kids. The day was lovely and sunny...lots of shade provided by trees (some guava trees) and some umbrellas. There is a really lovely play area & trampoline for the kids. Also a big hit with my 5 year old was the lego table which is kept in a corner of the... More

Dear NatalieP1205 Thank you for taking the time to write a review we are glad that you and your family enjoyed your time with us. The Lego table does seem to keep the little ones busy for hours which in turn give mummy and daddy a break to sit back and relax. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.... More

We had a great dinner - the beetroot and parma ham salad is highly recommended. The Dunstone Shiraz was also outstanding!

This is definitely the place to be on a hot summer's day - we popped in just to buy some wine and stayed for the tastiest salads, burgers & wine. Spacious restaurant, very friendly staff & good service makes this a must when travelling through Wellington. Do try the bush pig burger or the honey & mustard chicken salad and... More

This was a disappointment. Drive from Stellenbosch to come here on recommendation of tripadvisor. All 3 meals were disappointing. Dry chicken in tasteless pie. Not nice supposedly sticky ribs. Good salad dressing. Polite service.

Very good quality food and wine. Great burgers. The cost is average. The outside setting is lovely on a warm day. Inside seating area not as nice as its a bit boxed in. The service is average. On the wine route so it's close to other wine farms.

We enjoyed a set menu which was well conceived and offered a choice of two starters, three mains and two desserts. Our table... More
