"Described as a bucket list adventure, it won't disappoint."


Jackie Cameron's skills and knowledge of French classics allow her to push boundaries. This is evident in her ever-changing menu, which showcases Midlands produce and highlights her personality. Hearty English lentil tongue soup had me salivating for days. The chicken liver parfait (which was served with poached quail, Parma ham and sticky potatoes) is delicious - Asking for some more to spread over the homemade breads was so tempting. Ostrich tartar was fresh and delicate. Combinations of hot and cold on each plate accentuate the flavours just as described in the menu. The attention detail is what sets this restaurant apart. Described as a bucket list adventure, it won't disappoint.


The offering is designed for food and wine  enthusiasts. You will find gems and a collection of older vintages - some

of the best South Africa has to offer. The food and wine pairings  are well thought out.


Attentive, humble and genuine.


This iconic KwaZulu-Natal property is  steeped in history and culture, and you can enjoy some spectacular South  African art. Its colonial charm is breathtaking, and the combination of  old and new is very sophisticated.


Do stay over. Breakfast is even better than dinner (if it's possible).
