Eating at Ghost Fountain!

Have I piqued your interest? Want to know more? Well we have found a new restaurant for you to enjoy a delicious meal with stunning views.

The restaurant we are talking about is ELL @ Spookfontein Wine Farm up in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley on the R320 Wine Route.

The restaurant was opened by Norah Hudson and the team In December 2013, and from our experience there will only grow from strength to strength. The restaurant building designed by DJ Carr, and the interior décor designed by his partner Wilna, is unique and its openness, large windows and high roof creates a great relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen is open plan and great to watch the team at work.

The menu, which caters for vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters) has some lovely choices, with a combination of designer pizzas, salads & creative dishes using fresh local ingredients sourced with origin and ethical farming practices and sustainability in mind.

The restaurant is open from 10am and can be contacted on 084 923 1740. There are no credit or debit card facilities at the moment, so don’t forget to draw some Mandela’s before going to the restaurant. The Spookfontein Wine Farm has a tasting room in the restaurant and one can purchase wines to accompany your meal.

Legend has it that in the flowing waters of the natural spring (’spookfontein’) one can see a spirit or ghost… we never did get to the stream so we cannot at this stage validate this, and the only spirit we did see was from the open bottle on our table.
