I am always a little dubious when people tell me so-and-so restaurant is fab, so I was really chuffed with my trip up to the Red Barn on the Rheenendal road outside knysna.
I was working on an assignment for Getaway on family holidays in knysna and was travelling with my wife Justine and two sons aged Alex aged two and James four. The place was a hit all round.
While Jus and I enjoyed a relaxed glass of wine the kids amused themselves in the large garden, clambering up the jungle gym and playing on the pirate ship.
We had asparagus soup which the boys really enjoyed and a helping of delicious chicken livers cooked up with Moroccan spice and tomato reduction. Don’t expect the same on your visit – and you must visit if you are ever in this neck of the woods – as all ingredients are organic and fresh so the menu changes with the seasons.
All in all a great venue, lovely relaxed atmosphere, superb food and great host.
