About the garden

The Tokara Wine and Olive Farm opens its gardens to the public once a year. This is one garden that shouldn't be missed! It's a magnificent place to be for the senses- from a garden dedicated to indigenous plants to a picking garden, Tokara has it all. As you stroll through the gardens take extra care to look at the statues and keep an eye out for the amazing views overlooking the dam. On the same day, Tokara hosts the Rare Plant Fair. Vendors will sell a variety of indigenous plants to the more exotic, with something for even the most discerning of plant lovers.

It was a cold and rainy day, but Tokara restaurant was warm and welcoming! With a fire burning, good food and excellent wine, lunch was most enjoyable. Thank you to Chamu for his friendly and professional service. I love food that is quality made and bursts with interesting combinations of flavour. Tokara does not disappoint! Also received a complimentary dessert for my birthday, which was unexpected.

The balcony had the best views of any other venue I tried. Stunning. The wines were all very good - nothing stood out to me as exceptionally unique but they were tasty anyways. The olive oil tasting was awesome and I would recommend trying this out

Views - impeccable. Wine - quite good, but tasting was limited. Didn't get a chance to try the food as they close the restaurant in the afternoon, but I would have loved to. Don't miss out on the Olive Oil tasting too, well worth it.

I'd definitely never go back. Or recommend the Wine tasting side to Blacks. So I was visiting Tokara for the second this month, the first time was great. I was with my friend n we visited the restaurant for wine n dining. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I still remember after our 3 course meal, we requested from the manager to take pictures by the patio since it was closed due to bad weather n he assisted us with a smile n we felt welcomed until we left. I was there again today, attending my best friend's birthday celebration... She made reservations for wine tasting for a group of 14 ladies, after we've enjoyed the tasting before leaving we moved towards their garden area so we can get the view to take nice pictures. As we were seated inside there was an afternoon wedding n by the time we finished with our celebration the wedding had moved outdoor to an underground area. We asked for permission to go n take pictures bu the garden section n it was past 5pm n the gentleman who was busy on our table said it's okay we can go. When we got by the garden we found those O-ring decoration thingy with flowers on n luckily when we got there.... There were two guys coming to collect the item n we politely asked to take a group photo n he said we can take as many as we want, fine...they took some pictures as I was not interested, one of the guys also volunteered to take one pic with everyone in... We thanked thm n started taking pictures focusing on the different views n two of the chefs came to ask us to leave the lawn bcz they're still busy with a private function n started making a big deal that we asked to use the O-ring n we volunteered to pay for the time or pictures we took in front of the rented services but rather I sensed a racial preference.... All of a sudden we were overcrowding their space as if we didn't spend a dime. Some of us, we didn't drink n we were all treated as if we are drunk blacks causing chaos on their premises. We all matter as customers, we didn't even interact with the wedding group or disturb the private function.... Therefore, I feel like your treatment was unnecessary we were almost escorted out of the property.

This place was like something out of a glorious dream. We went in the rain and everything was soft and so incredibly beautiful. Service was exceptional and the food was ambrosia. Honestly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.
