A light lunch at Durbanville Hills

After the extensive and superb tasting at Nitída, we fancied just a light lunch and it was getting late. So we headed off to Durbanville Hills, where we knew they had a cafe serving snacks and light lunches. We ordered a bottle of their great Chardonnay
The main restaurant is upstairs but this small cafe in the garden suited us well.
Durbanville Hills has turned the front area garden into an open air Art Gallery and currently has an exhibition of sculptures by Marke Meyer which he calls visual poetry and some good paintings by Mbongeni Buthelezi. This is put together by Dirk Durnez, impresario for Art@DurbanvilleHills
Realistic paintings, lyrical sculpture
Doing the washing and under the sea!
Diving with an eel
This one is open to interpretation. Escaping from class?
A small story about Marke Meyer
Blowing in the wind
Our driver had a good local craft beer from Signal Gun
And we had the crisp well chilled chardonnay. Both were perfect for the hot afternoon
The open beef sandwich comes with a small salad
As does the open smoked salmon sandwich
John chose the biltong and cheese salad with preserved figs and got this huge pile of biltong, very good value
It is a nice place for a snack lunch. Don't expect quick service though, it's rather relaxed... We never did get our water
