This is the home, work place and cultural centre of Southern Africa’s first people - the San (in the past also called the Bushmen)
The !Khwa ttu Restaurant is located in the splendidly restored original farmhouse on top of one of the numerous hills marking the landscape. Adjacent to the restaurant lies a tea garden with a view that extends up and far over the Atlantic Ocean. The tea garden and restaurant are open from 9h00 to 17h00 on Tuesdays to Sundays. The restaurant also opens its doors for special functions in the evenings.
An effective team consisting of a professional Swiss chef and San trainees run the kitchen and restaurant. The menu offers light, hearty and creative dishes, which are spiced up with freshly picked herbs from the !Khwa ttu garden. The team focuses on fresh products, which manifest themselves in permanently available home-made bread and cakes, imaginative deserts and astonishing main courses. At the weekends the team prepares specially arranged three-course menus, which either can be ordered as a whole for only Rand 95 or single courses can be chosen. Meals can be complemented with both a variety of well-flavoured wines from the famous vineyards of the Darling area and a refreshing soft drink creation of the day.
