Mouthwatering lunch at stunning Beau Constantia

I’ve been markedly absent from Blogland for a while. Apologies for that. April was not the best of months for me with the death of my mother and a careless fall on a slippery floor resulting in me breaking my ankle. Luckily for you I had managed to squeeze in a couple of restaurants before […]

Lunchtime delights at Buitenverwachting

The first thing I love about this place is its name. It means “Beyond expectations” which is a big claim (well, depending on how much you’re expecting I guess, it my case that’s usually a lot). And it’s also particularly hard to pronounce for English speakers (until you’ve got the hang of it) – all […]
