The Deck at Hidden Valley Wine Estate is a full on Mommy Friendly spot (explanation on my blog https://www.mommyexplores.com/kiddy-vs-mommy-friendly/)
I have been to Overture Restaurant before, but not to The Deck and I simply fell in love! Gorgeous views of the Helderberg Mountain lie before you, reflecting in the dam. Orders can be placed at the "bar" where there is a limited menu, but OMG, such good food! I had the burger, because I was told, it will change my life. Maybe it was because I was so hungry, or perhaps because it was a Bertus Basson creation, but it was divine!
And then a stunning line up of wine...the Sauvignon Blanc / Viognier caught my eye and it went down perfectly on a hot Cape Town afternoon in Summer! But there is a good variety from Brut to Sauvignon Blanc.
So, perhaps this is not the place you want to take the kids to run free at, but some times, mom does need an afternoon off and I could think of no better place to chill out at with my friends (ok, I could think of a few) so, this would be one of them...
