For an unforgettable Cape experience, make a beeline for this glorious Cape Dutch manor house on a farm outside Paarl. Meals are long, languid rituals, whether it's an alfresco lunch in the garden or a four-course dinner in the 18th-century dining room. The menu changes daily, but you might start with sweet-corn soup with cilantro cream followed by trout fillet on handmade pasta with a basil sabayon. A main course of lamb loin comes teamed with roasted butternut and shallots
in muscadel, with an indigenous malva pudding with a rooibos-tea mousse as the finale. This feast is priced at R240 and includes a different wine with each course.
