Upon entering the restaurant you will find a table set up with silver, food and flowers as a sign respect to the legend. The story goes that Kronendal Farm was owned by Sir Abraham Josias Cloete between 1835 and 1849. His daughter Elsa was forbidden to marry her soldier lover, and ended up dying from a broken heart. People still claim to see her standing behind the gable window waiting for her lover.
