Lunch with my lovely wife. El Jefe pizza for her and Sancho Panza (?) for me. Why new? Don't love hot foods but my pizza was drizzled with chili infused olive oil. Very nice. Service was good - waitress even brought a glass of water without being asked (wasn't that hot). If deciding on milkshakes - take larger one -... More

Lovely setting and the food (a burger and a pizza) was fair but definitely not worth the price or the over 1 hour waiting time. Some bread baskets with olive oil, balsamic and butter would go a long way if you're going to make your patrons wait for so long. Definitely not the reviews it's been given previously on TripAdvisor.

Booked for lunch with a friend on one of the hottest Autumn days! The welcoming pitcher of water and Inverroche Gin cocktail ( the distillery is right next door!). The intense heat did allow us to have anything more than one of the most delectable pizzas.

We read the reviews and thought we were going to have great pizzas. First we waited about an hour for 4 pizzas. The bases didn't taste like freshly made bases rather as if they were bought at a shop and baked in an oven not wood fire. We didn't taste any mozzarella on them rather mixture if cheddar and another... More

I understand that they take time with their food as they focus a lot on quality, which is great and understandable. However, we had to constantly wave to get a waiters attention to order drinks etc . Luckily when the pizza arrived it made up for this ! Thin crust, good toppings and very tasty . We ordered extra garlic... More

We enjoyed the ploughman´s platter: chicken liver paté, home made cheese, cold meats, tapenade, pesto, all from their own farm. Highly recommended. The house wine sauvignon is delicious.

Beautifully situated and surrounded by olive trees. It is evident that a lot of thought and effort was put into the design and layout of the resturant and patio area. We had pizzas and baguettes which were delicious however were warned that meals take a while to prepare. Even though we took cognisance of the warning note, it took almost... More

We met up with some friends and enjoyed some of the best pizza in Stilbaai. You can either sit inside or outside and they have a good selection of drinks.

We went for a two spontaneous Sunday breakfasts in the past month or so. Usually we only go for lunch but we were pleasantly surprised to see how great the breakfast was! We had the flapjacks, plain breakfast and the salmon breakfast - all great! Flapjacks were a little too sweet but soooo gooood! Only reason I didn't give 5... More
