The Square Restaurant is a magnificent glass-roofed restaurant with tranquil green surrounds. The indoor trees make one feel in tune with nature and create an intimate atmosphere, which compliments the superb cuisine. This wonderful ambience is enhanced by harp or piano music. The award-winning wine list completes this enjoyable dining experience, with all the major estates represented as well as some "off-the-beaten-track" choices.
