The Longest part of my trip to De Grendel, was the beautiful driveway, that made me feel like a surprise lies around the corner of this gorgeous venue, only 20 minutes from Cape Town… 6 Minutes from my house.
My virgin Mojito arrives quickly, and In the heat of Summer in Cape town, I am exhausted by the beautiful views of Table Mountain ! Wine cocktails are also available. I know, a Wine cocktail. I soberly fell off my chair, because I want one. Imagine adding watermelon, and basil. And then the farms own Sauvignon Blanc.
The venue is open for lunch and dinner, try for lunch though, the farm has duck ponds and horses and if you have kids, a Sunday outing here is a real treat. Also, open some of the delicious wines. They are realistically priced.
As for the food…ridiculously good. No really.
The menu changes often- I don’t mind though.
My meals and tastes prepared by Ian Berg-
Squid head prawn form mains – For words so simple, the dish had a lot of detail. Delicious.
I am a fan of risotto, but nobody gets it right- They did. Out comes a surprise dish from the chef, Wild mushroom risotto, , Enoki mushroom and artichokes .
I had the lamb on the main menu. I enquired about the sauce that was good enough to drink. Well, they added Port. YUM!
Want to have lunch or dinner at De Grendel? I would say yes.
