Great place to go with all the family for lunch. The food was very tasty, very generous portions and a decent wine list. There is no rush here either which is great as the children can play and run around safely. We will definitely return. A very enjoyable relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Went this morning for breakfast... was told you to go to the hostess who was on the phone. Waited patiently, wasn't acknowledged once by her and then in front of us turns to a waitress and says "no more tables for breakfast". Dismissive attitude and just rude! Won't be back!

Beautiful venue, indoors or on the patio overlooking lawns for kids and even a brewing company and roaming chickens. Great food, beautifully served, very professional staff. Go, you wont be dissaponted.

Great place to stock up on extremely well priced, good quality deli products ie pork hams, biltong, sausages, pork and beef meats! Delicious fresh pies and real french bread!

We visit this bistro and the pork butchery regularly. It's a lovely setting and the food never disappoints! The burgers are perfect, all the pork dishes are delicious. We particularly enjoy the good service and the farm chickens hanging around! Can highly recommend this restaurant for scones, main meals, their wine list! Caters to a wide range of tastes.

We were at the brewery for a picnic. 60 persons in attendance. Fortunately most of our guests brought their own camping chair and with the tables we reserved we had enough seating. Efficient serving of our pre-ordered meals added to a great atmosphere under the trees....I was surprised my guests could ring up a tab of R3,5k on a Saturday... More

What a disappointment our experience was when we decided to meet family for lunch at the apparently popular Klein Joostenberg. Firstly the place is not very well marked along the road after we drove 400 km back and forth not to mentioned the service which is absolutely shocking. We were told that a certain meal we ordered was out of... More

This little gem a stone's throw from the N1 highway is filled with surprises. We went to breakfast and ended up leaving 3 hours later! The portions are generous and the coffee is great. The view overlooking the lush green lawns and gardens isn't too bad either!
