Welcome to our enchanting garden setting! Not only will you be delighted by our delicious food, but you’ll also be captivated by the natural beauty that surrounds you. As you wander through our grounds, you’ll encounter a protected freshwater wetland, home to the endangered western leopard toad. The majestic Constantia mountains provide a stunning backdrop, with Table Mountain visible in the distance.

Follow the winding path that leads you through hidden spaces, and you’ll discover a remarkable collection of sculptures created by talented African artists. What sets us apart is that we welcome children to engage with our artwork. They’re encouraged to climb, explore, and fully immerse themselves in the beauty and creativity around them.
