About al Fiume


al Fiume - Italian for 'at the river' - has all the ingredients for a great restaurant: a beautiful setting on a shady wooden deck on the banks of the Hennops River at the peaceful River Place Country Estate and a restaurateur with a passion for food, as well as the experience to ensure outstanding levels of service.

al Fiume serves food that lives up to our definition of quality: the season's best, cooked with skill and passion and presented with a minimum of fuss. 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.

al Fiume is a restaurant for all seasons: long, lazy summer days on the wooden deck; bright spring days when the first signs of green are starting to appear on the trees overhanging the river; bracing winter days when you might want to work off your meal with a brisk walk over the bridge and cozy autumn days when you can sit snugly in the restaurant and watch the falling leaves floating down the river.

al Fiume was voted one of South Africa's Top 10 Romantic Restaurants by the prestigious Wine Magazine.Visiting this beautiful country restaurant is a must.

Visit this restaurant but give them your phone number at your own peril. If you do you will receive SPAM messages every week for the rest of forever. Even though I did not give permission and after two years of asking, begging, threatening and even yelling, Al Fiume refuse point blank to remove me from their SPAM list.

Even with one of the best settings, this restaurant's staff will ensure a bad name. Having to wait intervals of up to 50 minutes of not even seeing one waiter when you are having a birthday party is totally unpleasant and should be avoided.
