Next, try the grilled venison loin with cauliflower purée, fried polenta, sherry-braised pearl onions, and sultana-and-hazelnut chutney for mains.

Guardian Peak’s famous steaks also come highly recommended year-round. They also serve substantial salads, juicy burgers, lamb rogan josh, and roast pork fillet. A selection of desserts from the menu are:

  • The Amarula panna cotta.
  • Crème brûlée.
  • Dark chocolate fondant.
  • A lush pecan and caramel cheesecake.

The cellar is open daily for tastings (with platters), to purchase any of Guardian Peak’s everyday-drinking wines, and a selection from The Stellenbosch Collection. So you can relax on the terrace and soak up the views with a glass in your hand, followed by a memorable lunch or dinner.
