Chef Eric Bulpitt combines classic French technique and South African produce to create a seasonal four-course à la carte menu which retains all the natural taste and textures of fresh farm ingredients. Exquisitely plated, the main ingredient – pasture-reared chicken, farmed cob, fallow deer or free-range duck and guinea-fowl – is enhanced by fragrant oils, purées and emulsions. Great attention to detail is the signature of an original menu, which showcases heritage herbs, berries and vegetables, from buchu-roasted carrots or parsnips to African wild garlic, lavender and juniper berries.Wine:

Superb service and excellent food. A great fine dining experience.
For their New Year's Eve party they accepted too many guests (200 people) with a pre-payment of R1650 (150 Euros per person). They set up tables outside on the lawn and in a tent, despite the strong winds up to 100 km/h. Plates, glasses and food were flying off the tables. Management had no back-up plan and refused a refund. Very poor ambience and poor quality of food. I would avoid going here again.
