For dinner arrangements ask if we are cooking or for recommendations on local restaurants. We both have a passion for food and regularly sample what's on offer trying out new ones or revisit old favourites, being in the Winelands, the big city of Cape Town or just driving the gravel roads of the Overberg.
In season (August till March) we endeavour to cook for our guest 2 to3 nights a week. This gives us an opportunity to share our passion for food with you, in an informal surrounding and with stunning views over Walker bay. Guests are welcome to join in the preparation, preferably with a glass of fine Overberg wine.
With Gansbaai's fishing harbour only minutes away there is an ample supply of fresh seafood. We try to source as much fresh produce locally in the Overberg. Our eggs come from Grootbos Nature Reserve; cream & cheese from Klein rivier cheese close to Stanford and Herbs from our own garden.
The menu normally comprises of either three or four courses with emphases on local seafood and anything fresh & interesting we can find. With the highlight being one of Lainy's mouth watering desserts.
For the nights we do not cook, there are various restaurants in the area we can recommend and book for you. There is upmarket Red Indigo Restaurant at the stylish Forest lodge on Grootbos (5 min). The cosy house restaurant Havercrofts in Stanford (15min) and a selection of restaurants in Gansbaai (5min).
