Hi Mirielle, we would like to just pop you a quick message to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for every single thing you did for us. You are an incredible person and we know how much work and effort you put into every little detail. Our guests even complimented us on your willingness to go the extra mile and your friendly assistance with everyone. Nothing seemed to ever be too much trouble for you and we simply cannot thank you enough. All the staff, Elizma and everyone made our day extra extra special. Thanks again

Our in-house chef, has created multiple exceptional menus especially designed to tantalise your taste buds.  Our delectable canapes & refreshing arrival drinks are still the best way to start your special day. The most popular wedding menu option is the Kiaat, which were especially designed with wedding flavours in mind. However, we can also design bespoke menus considering any unique culinary requirements that you may have in mind. Food tastings can be enjoyed by prior arrangement & we highly recommend that couples meet with our Head Chef to discuss their menu choices.
