This place is worth even a detour! Wendy cooks excellent - especially the desert was remarkable! And good that we followed Simon's recommendation for the wine!

Made a reservation for dinner to celebrate and upon arrival we were met by a small man who refused to accommodate us in the restaurant, he had the worst attitude I have ever encountered in any restaurant across the globe.

He said he wont help us with better seating even though there were tables available and as we left he arrogantly announced that we are leaving the best restaurant in Montagu - which is a lie.

It seems this is a 'has been' spot as there are new spots and better established spots open in town. We ended up dinning at 22 Church Street - a new spot that gave us excellent service. Mimosa, Kokkemans Kitchen are other options for dinner and Rambling Rose (for lunch).

After three weeks in South Africa we had become used to the standard fare on offer so it was lovely to find a restaurant with a more interesting menu. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and helpful. The place is run by a husband and wife team; she is the chef and he looks after the front of house. After she emerged from the kitchen we had a long chat with them and they were absolutely charming. So I can't understand the problem one of the recent reviewers mentioned.

Popped in for dinner, obviously at a quiet time of the year. Service was super friendly and relaxed by the owners. Dinner was superbly cooked and it's really refreshing to hear the cooking going on in the adjacent kitchen. My steak was superbly cooked, moist and tender, similarly veg crisp, my wife and sons dinner similarly tasty and well cooked. Very child friendly and very happy to subtlety alter a dish to the taste of a younger one, i.e. chicken without a sauce.

The wine list is local (as you would hope), reasonably priced and the wine we had fabulous which was a recommendation.

Price wise too, dinner was very reasonable from a European perspective.

Overall a really nice dinner, cooked and served by genuinely relaxed and nice people.

Would highly recommend !

We chose the restaurant because of the good reviews here. My wife ate a seafood pasta at dinner. She ate less than a third of the dish, because the fish was smelling. They changed the dish after arguing that it was fresh. Even though, my wife was sick during all night long. The following day was parcially missed because of this.
