Lunching at Terroir in the Winelands

My godmother was visiting from the UK and my mom said: “book the restaurants and we’ll pay”. This is a unicorn statement in my house- far from the usual but I quickly jumped on the statement and got booking. One of the lunches I booked was a visit to Terroir. I have been a few…

A Night Away with Spier

I was invited to spend the evening at Spier’s Hotel in Stellenbosch. I was a little reluctant as I’d had a really bad experience at their wine tasting a couple of years ago. During our tasting experience we felt like just another number being pushed through Spier’s conveyer belt – rushed to leave and ticked…

Kyoto Garden Sushi: Set Menu for Two

If you have been following the blog you will know I am a huge fan of Kyoto Garden Sushi. It is one restaurant that we consistently return to and are always impressed by the dishes. We have a few big hit favourites but try taste more dishes on the menu every time. The only problem…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

We are very spoilt in Cape Town having winelands just round the corner! Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are easy trips but Constantia is even closer! Sometimes we are a little lazy and not so well organised. The Constantia wine farms make a perfect weekend filler when we are looking for something fun to do that requires…

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

We found ourselves in the winelands without a plan or destination in mind. This almost never happens- I am such a control freak that normally all our weekends are planned to the T. Instead of getting on our phones and googl’ing, making lists and getting recommendations on twitter, I left it up to chance. And…

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Lunching at Blanko in the ‘burbs

The Alphen Hotel is one of my favourite places in the Southern Suburbs. Their hotel is my favourite of 2016. I love the breakfasts at La Belle and now I am a huge fan of Blanko. Blanko has replaced 5 Rooms with a more bright, light and open dining option. I enjoyed the food at…

Crumbs and Creams

I thought by now the craze would have worn out. But it really hasn’t. I arrived at Crumbs and Cream on a lovely wintery day with a queue of twenty people heading out the door! I could not believe it but the queue moves quickly with the guys up front being organised, in charge and…
