Paarl Kids Journey
Children, we love them and understand that meal times in restaurants is a grown-up thing and that little feet want to run and climb and little hands hate using a knife and fork but would rather paint and draw.
Ridgeback Wines – The Deck Restaurant and Tasting Room
The Deck Restaurant is open 6 days a week and can be found in our wine tasting centre.
