Fodor's Review

At the end of Annandale Road, Hidden Valley Estate perches on a mountain ridge, flanked by the splendor of fynbos-covered hills and a silvery grove of olive trees. The estate's spectacular upscale restaurant has a constantly changing menu of seasonal ingredients that manifests a pure love of food, further evidenced in the presence of the head chef and owner, who comes to chat with diners in between plating dishes like yellowtail tartare with Asian flavors, avocado puree, sago chips, and sesame, or entrecôte with parsnip puree, mushrooms, and Jerusalem artichokes. Expect extremely good value for this level of cuisine; the menu can be ordered a la carte or you can choose the three-course (R355) or five-course menu (R540). The food comes paired with excellent wines from the estate and beyond. Service is friendly, competent, and unobtrusive—that is to say, just right. Little wonder this restaurant wins regular awards; book at least a month in advance during summer.
