Fine Dining


We have the most beautiful evenings in Oudtshoorn and our veranda offers the perfect setting for romantic candlelight dinners beneath the stars!
  • Dinners are charged at an additional R275 pp for a three-course meal. Our speciality includes ostrich steaks, but our menu offers a good variety of typical cuisine during your stay. 
  • Dinners and breakfast are served on the veranda of the main house which can easily be converted into a closed room when needed.
