We stopped in for a wine flight and some lunch. The pizza was delicious. It was lovely atmosphere with the fire behind us while we sipped on wine. Good value and delicious food.

As a foodie and wine lover this was the perfect outing for me. The pizza was the best I'd had in a long time. Karusa will surely see me again soon.

Quite casual. Simple but interesting menu. Lots of space for families/kids to run off steam. A good stop on way to or from the Cango Caves.

Karusa is a wine yard and a microbrewery. Its located a bit off the road but its a pleasant seating to taste their wine and beer.

We both had the Ploughmans lunch which was very nice under the willow tree. We manage to finish a botyle of the Aloe Ridge chardonnay which was fruit yet still dry. Welll worth a stop.
