The food & service were good! However, access to the restaurant was difficult with my 98 yr old mother. Management could do with providing better access at the front so that one could get as close as possible for elderly/disabled people. The road was good...More

Excellent food, a very relaxing location with a great view. The address, "8" Curry's Post Road may mean 8 km from the turnoff at Howick, which is about right. Do check ahead, they are open restricted days and hours. Well worth the adventure!

I recommend that you brave the mildly challenging driveway for one of the best meals you'll have in the midlands. Excellent food, great service and a fantastic view.

Yes, it's situated in a lovely location, and has had some great reviews here on Tripadvisor (which I don't doubt at all). But I'm of the opinion that the meal I've chosen to eat should be far superior and 'mysterious' to the one that I...More

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
