There’s an apocryphal story about a neighbour who wasn’t too happy with his new German neighbours on the Wortelgat Road outside Stanford. But the German neighbours invited him nonetheless when they opened their new restaurant… and he accepted.
During the long lunch at Springfontein Eats, he had a phone call from his daughter, concerned about the rising level of the Klein River which passed right in front of his home. He told her he couldn’t worry about it now, he was enjoying the meal too much.
His daughter called again half an hour later to say that the water was at the door. Again, he said the meal was too good to leave. Her next call was to let him know that the water was up to knee height in the house. He told her not to worry, the house was insured and the meal was truly exceptional.
Yes, Springfontein Eats is that good. And although it opened five years ago, it’s still producing some of the most memorable gastronomic experiences you’ll get anywhere.
