    Our last evening in stellenbosch was great, we had the risotto and line fish and started with outstanding aperitif like Martini bianco and a selection of Grappa as digestive. Great Wine selection is surely in stellenbosch no question. Three weeks of outstanding food and service quality! Liebe grüsse diana

    Lovely restaurant in the center of Stellenbosch with very good food and a lovely service. Menue offers a nice choice for all - meat, fish vegetarian. We definitely recommend going there . Thanks for a very nice, first evening in Stellenbosch.

    Beautiful restaurant, perfectly located in the heart of Stellenbosch. Friendly staff and a lot of attention to detail. Food is very good, however slightly overpriced.
