Children’s mealtimes and baby-sitting

We recommend that small children have their supper between 6pm and 7pm to allow other guests to have a relaxing dinner in the restaurant. We serve a two-course children’s supper in the dining room for kids under the age of 10. The cost is R70 per meal and booking is required.

Baby-sitting services are available on request at R60 per hour. Childminding is done by our housekeeping team so please let us know in the morning if you need this service at night so that we can arrange it for you.
