My husband and I dined at Guardian Peak and were treated to the most delicious lunch at one of my favourite restaurants. Located in the Stellenbosch Winelands, Guardian Peak is the perfect setting for a romantic meal, meal with family and friends or visitors.
There are, almost, no words to describe the breath-taking view at Guardian Peak. Sitting at the table after a busy morning I was mesmerized by the spectacular scenery and felt completely relaxed in the tranquil ambience of this outstanding restaurant. This is definitely my favourite Winelands view and it’s impossible not to feel completely relaxed dining here.
Guardian Peak excels in all areas from breath taking beauty, delicious food of the finest quality, outstanding wines, excellent service, relaxed ambience while still achieving an unpretentious vibe and being affordable (compared with restaurants of this standard). This restaurant is sensational and completes my every dining desire.
This was a much needed, as always for parents, time out for mom and dad to connect and enjoy time together. A completely different and welcoming pace without kids and time to enjoy quality time together at this beautiful restaurant in the winelands. We laughed and talked, ate and drank, and had a great time being just us, again. Guardian Peak was the perfect choice for our romantic outing.
The mouth-watering menu is al la-carte serving bistro style food with an emphasis on prime-quality steaks. They have an outstanding range of wines and you can wine taste at your table while waiting for your meal or in the tasting lounge area.
For starters we had the Prawn Tempura and Beetroot and Goats Cheese Stack with rocket and balsamic glaze. For mains I had the seared Salmon and my husband had the Fillet with mushroom sauce cooked to perfection. The food was of the highest quality and every dish was absolutely delicious. We paired the starter with the Rose, which is my favourite, and I had the Sauvignon Blanc with my main and my husband had the Cabernet Sauvignon.
For dessert we ate the decadent Chocolate Fondant with homemade Hazelnut Ice Cream and the delicious baked Cheesecake with whipped cream and granadilla coulis. The perfect end to a perfect meal. To complement our sweet tooth, we paired our desserts with the dessert wine and it was delicious. We do not usually like dessert wine but this was exceptional.
If you would like to visit with the kids there is a small play area with a jungle gym, which I would recommend for slightly older kids as there is not much space for roaming or families with babies. There is a change table in the men’s bathroom which I think is fantastic. Request to sit outside on the deck near the jungle gym.
I highly recommend Guardian Peak, don’t miss out on this exceptional dining experience.
Thank you Guardian Peak for a decadent dining experience. We left feeling completely content and fell in love with this restaurant all over again.
