Attended a farewell, lunch time function during the week. Located on the premises of the Killarney country it really is a very attractive garden setting. Had a meeting on the lawns prior to the luncheon and the beverage service was very attentive. Lunch was a buffet with served snacks prior to the buffet mains. Again the service was friendly and...

An evening spent with a fine choice from the cellar, great food and good service. The chef was able to accommodate gluten free requirements. The party was able to have conversations without being constantly disturbed and yet the waiters were attentive. I would suggest some training for pouring wine as were put in the uncomfortable position of telling the waiter... More

We popped past for a birthday afternoon tea. Service was great but rest was a let down. Scones were pathetic - cupcake like things with a tiny squirt of cream. To top is all off they had no tea - seriously, no tea bags for black tea. I mean please!

Hi Mathew, Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we believe we can only grow as a business when we get constructive criticism, so thank you! With regards to our scones, they are homemade and our version of the classic scone, a lot of our clients love them but I am truly sorry that you didn't, maybe the... More

Lunch date with a friend. Food was superb, excellent value for money (highly recommend their burgers with thick home-made patties done to perfection - they even have a banting-friendly option). Service was outstanding. We enjoyed it so much we ended up staying & chatting for 4 hours! Lovely setting in the Killarney Country Club grounds. It was an unexpectedly chilly... More

On Saturday 17 September I hosted my daughter's bridal shower. The setting was lovely, the food was brilliant and your staff were superb. Thank you so much for making it so special for her. Thoroughly recommend this venue, even more because I live in Durban and flew up for the event. Thank you one and all

At arrival. Not even a "good morning" on a Sunday morning. "Do you have a booking? Usual on Sundays we are full." We look around and there's literally 4 tables with people. Lost the charm and the etiquette.

Hi Helena. We are absolutely embarrassed by this review and will definitely take the team to task about their hospitality and the manner in which they treat our guests. We are very proud of our warmth and hospitality and this is definitely not the La Vie en Rose we are known for. I am so sorry that my management team... More

I was invited to a birthday party here and on arrival was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful setting. This was quickly and effectively corrected. The staff were aimlessly wondering around, I asked for directions to the party table and was kindly helped by a manager person, but someone else sitting stuffing her face changed that good dead, she mumbled that...
