Al Fiume Italian Restaurant
al Fiume at River Place Country Estate is an impressive 200-seater venue that takes full advantage of magnificent mountain vistas, river views and landscaped indigenous gardens, all combining to provide an idyllic experience on the banks of the Hennops River. On a shady wooden deck al Fiume - Italian for 'at the river' - has all the ingredients for people with a passion for food, as well as outstanding levels of service.
The ambience created by this setting is special. Food is classic Italian with the emphasis on freshness and quality. al Fiume serves food that lives up to their definition of quality using only the season's best. This is cooked with skill and passion and presented with a minimum of fuss. The restaurant continues to receive rave reviews since opening 2 years ago. Al Fiume also caters to all conferences held on the Estate and is also available for exclusive functions and events.
The cellar at al Fiume is stocked with a diverse choice of Italian and South African wines. The selection includes everyday drinking wines and wines for special occasions; wines from some of South Africa's best-known estates and unusual wines from smaller estates.
Whether it's a romantic occasion, a high-level business meeting or an intimate family lunch together with al Fiume's meticulous attention to detail and emphasis on stylish sophistication they will help you celebrate your vision. Certainly a restaurant for all seasons: long, lazy summer days on the wooden deck; bright spring days when the first signs of green appear on overhanging trees; bracing winter days when you might want to work off your meal with a brisk walk over the bridge or cosy autumn days when you can snugly sit in the restaurant and watch the falling leaves as they float down the river.
River Place makes one feel as if you're far removed from the city - however the venue is extremely accessible.
