We have had the privilege of eating here a few times now, one of which was our wedding. This is truly a hidden GEM in Cape Town, would highly highly recommend taking the time to explore Knorhoek, Towerbosch restaurant, Guesthouse and it's fine fine wines!

We had a three course set menu. Great starter - a green salmon salad which was perfect for a summer's day, and generous portions of confit duck and braised shoulder of lamb. Rounded off with a lovely panacotta poached with pear. The wines of the Knorhoek Estate are on the menu. Try the Knorhoek Pantère 2012 on the menu for... More

Had a delicious meal from start to finish. Generous helpings, the prawn starter could have been a main meal! and the braised shoulder of lamb was as tender as could be, the apple and cherry crumble was very delicious. The cheese board had such a selection and worth going just for that! The wine prices were also very reasonable and... More

The restaurant is very charming with the eclectic mix of cutlery and seating. The food we were served was excellent - succulent beef, delicious salads and a superb dessert tart. The gardens are beautiful for lazy afternoons It's a bit off the beaten path - at the end of the Knorhoek road, but it is most definitely worth a visit

This beautiful gem is bit off of the beaten track but it is well worth the effort. The setting is beautiful, the menu is small but interesting and the food is spectacular. The only drawback was no espresso coffee

We had lunch there a few days ago with friends (six of us) as part of a Groupon deal (now defunct). Apart from a snag with our Groupon vouchers which was badly handled by inexperienced management, we all had a very enjoyable lunch. The setting is relaxing under great oak trees, the service was friendly and efficient, and the food... More

My wife and I and two other couples had lunch there the other day. The setting is very pretty. It was a warm day so we sat under the trees. The welcome was professional and the service was excellent throughout. We all had three courses and tried various dishes. They were ALL absolutely delicious. We had a bottle or two... More

Have had Sunday lunch there twice now and both times the food was exquisite and the service excellent. Both times the lamb shoulder was so tender you did not need a knife to eat it. Not to mention the duck fat roasted potatoes. Really superb food and the location is very child friendly.
