Our Restaurant is situated in the beautiful Durbanville Winelands on the Hooggelegen Farm. The farm has been in the De Wit family for 118 years. The Mount boasts idyllic views of the Hottentots Holland, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek mountains and nearby farmlands.

Fireplaces in the smoking and non-smoking areas are welcoming on a cold winter's evening and the vine-covered terrace is very popular for outdoor dining in summer.
