Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
Fraai Uitzicht Review
In a deeply rural setting between Robertson and Ashton, this 200-year-old fruit and wine farm is home to a rustic restaurant where chef Sandra Burchardt whips up impressively sophisticated fare. Garden produce and herbs are transformed into a menu of culinary joy, and serious food lovers can opt for the six- or seven-course tasting menu with matching wines for each course. You might start with a bacon-wrapped salmon-trout fillet or the subtle smoked springbok carpaccio. Main courses might include roast rack of lamb with rosemary pesto or the tagine of free-range chicken cooked with fresh herbs and saffron and served with couscous and vegetables. Desserts are as admirable, their sauces as stellar as those of the savory variety. Try the "dream of Africa": a freshly baked mousse soufflé of Belgian chocolate served with vanilla yogurt cream and a mixed-berry coulis. The wine list does not disappoint, presenting a selection of the Robertson Valley's best, augmented with French champagne.
