6 course food and wine pairing. Great food, fantastic wines. Romantic ambience (perhaps the Gregorian Chant music not quite perfect) and excellent service. Wine portions on the small side, especially being such good wines. Really enjoyed it and reasonably priced.

Granita is always exceptional, menu changes by season and never dissapoints. Great for romantic getaway and intimate dining. No children allowed which is great for some relaxing time.

We stayed at Kivitskroon on the weekend of 30 July 2016 for a romantic weekend, which unfortunately was ruined by the fine dining experience at Granita. First off, courses came too fast with the first course being served barely minutes after bread had been served....More

The lunch was a 5 course menu with our booked SPA menu. Portions were fine but a 5 course lunch menu was too much for me. The food is fine but nothing special. It is a pitty that they don't serve a la carte food.More
