  3. Hi Tandy, sounds like a very nice place. The food and surroundings look and sound elegant. Though it’s hard to believe you have to find your own parking. I guess we are pretty spoiled in the areas where we live.

    • Stellenbosch is a student town with loads of restaurants and night spots – parking is always a nightmare 🙂

  4. What a great review. The chocolate beetroot cake sounded interesting, until you described it. Hopefully they see this post and jack that up, as well as their service. Sounds like an interesting place to try.

    • The cake could have been super moist as I have made one myself and it is so good 🙂

  6. Helena’s looks like a lovely experience. I think I’d would have like to sample that purplish/pink ice cream first though! Stunning color, wondering how it tasted.

    Like you, I just adore locally sourced food! Love knowing where my food came from and supporting local farmers and growers who are doing their best =) And it tastes fresher too.

    I’m really picky about hot food, and this is especially true in a restaurant. Lukewarm food, bleh,

    • The ice cream tasted like beetroot and was not overly sweet. We always warm our plates at home as it makes such a difference to the meal 🙂

  7. Maybe living in the poorest province has something to do with it but I found Cape Town to be extremely expensive. Pete bought 2 pork belly rolls at a market and it cost R120.00 – I thought this was exorbitant and insulting.
    Have a wonderful day.

    • That was stupidly expensive Mandy and there is no need for those type of prices!

  8. It sounds like it definitely has some pluses and also some things that could be improved too. And Stellenbosch seems like such a distant memory for me now!
