We enjoyed a lovely Saturday morning with our guests (and everybody's children) at the restaurant. The food, service and venue were all perfect.

Good selection of Gins at a reasonable price compared to others in the market. 3 local gins for R70 or any 3 other gins for R80. Locally made ones not bad, and a great selection of international ones. Great setting. Worth a try.
