Housed in the old wine cellar of a much loved local landmark EVERT RESTAURANT can be described as a stupendous and inspiring blend of Cape Dutch heritage elements balanced by a contemporary focus. Down-to-earth elegance with velvet couches, antique tables, beautifully restored old furniture and true South African hospitality set the scene for a restaurant with a difference. Patrons may sit inside by the huge fireplace soaking up the heritage or outside in the garden with gorgeous views of the Evertsdal valley.

The life of EVERT von Guinea centred around the farming of fruit and vegetables. This inspiring tale of self-preservation and sustainable living resonated with us to such an extent that we are developing a plan to reintroduce a sustainable vegetable garden on the property in memory of Evert and his heritage.

The garden will allow us to produce and provide organic produce to the restaurant, to our staff and possibly to the local community. All landscaping will be effected responsibly and without disturbing the current indigenous vegetation and trees on the property.
