Graskop is situated between rolling mountains, bubbling water, and ages of history. But Graskop is also a foodie's dream location for a quick breakaway.

What is a Foodie? 

"A foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and who eats food not out of hunger but due to their interest or hobby. The terms "gastronome" and "gourmand" define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure"- Wikipedia

5. Summerfields Kitchen and River Café

While there are many things we can say, we will simply start with this: 
Both Summerfields Kitchen and River Café were winners in the prestigious 2016 World Luxury Restaurant Awards

If that isn't enough to get a foodie's taste buds watering, we don't know what is. 

Summerfields is a rose farm situated on the R536 Sabie-Hazyview road. The kitchen is only open for dinner, but it's one of those places you have to visit before you die. The tables are neat, decorated with freshly-cut flowers from the farm while the staff tends to your needs and the chefs prepare your meals. 

Each plate of food is guaranteed to make your taste buds sing to a tune of delight! 
Added bonus: Summerfields uses organic greens from their very own garden so they can ensure the highest quality every time. 

Summerfields also offer tours of the rose farm and orchards. Additionally, they also have a spa where you can treat yourself to a day of relaxation and rest!
