Two of our party of four ordered a steak, were asked how they wanted it cooked, and asked for it "medium well". It arrived cooked "medium rare", one battled on regardless, the other sent it back and asked for it to be cooked more. The same steak came back still cooked "medium rare", with blood running from it onto the plate. He left his meal. The bill came with both diners charged for their steaks. Poor, poor form.

The other diners had delicious hake and fries.

A beautiful location, great wine tasting, fun golf pitching.

The Impressive entrance and delightful welcome drink, were a great start to this fabulous establishment. We enjoyed the tour to the wine cellar and obviously the spectacular views. Tom took excellent care of us and was very knowledgeable with regards to the wine. Will definitely be back to enjoy the estate and have lunch!

Drawn to Ernie Els wines because of our admiration for Els as a great golfer and great professional in that field. The wines were not spectacular, nor was the fellow who gave the background for each tasting, but the setting and the place itself make time spent there very enjoyable and worth it. And nice touch with the chipping tee onto a mini green.
