A must stop on your wine tasting trip. Cheese and wine are nice as is the setting and interior. They also have lunch restaurant.

So much to do here. Brilliant wine tasting venue, ample parking, great wines, spacious inside the tasting area. Then the cheese tasting area with the most wonderfull aray of localy made cheeses. A full on restaurant on the farm and then the goats to keep the kids busy. Great attraction

We were recommended this restaurant by some local friends and loved it. The service was great, the atmosphere relaxing and easy, but most importantly the food was amazing. We actually came back again to enjoy their amazing selection of cheeses.

There are so many wonderful wineries in South Africa that I try not to make repeat visits, but I make an exception for Fairview. Great atmosphere, wide range of food choices, and the wines are terrific. Spend the extra money for the tasting that pairs eight wines and cheeses. The setting for that is gorgeous, and you learn much more... More

This is a must stop if you are in the area! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A very reasonable price to have wine and cheese tasting - the wines we tried were quite good, but the cheese stole the show! So many varieties, and every one of them was delicious.

Lovely wine, delicious cheese and a beautiful location! The cheeses on sale are cheaper than the shops!!! The R25 to taste the wine and cheese is well worth it. Just an awesome experience!!

The Goatshed restaurant food was very tasty and good value for money. We loved the cheese platter with a variety of 10 different cheeses, goatsmilk and cow milk cheese. We shared the platter for 2 between 4 persons and with the soup of the day had a wonderfull meal. The gardens are beautifull and the atmosphere great!

No wine trip to RSA can omit the famous Back dynasty's Fairview estate in Paarl, it would be enough on the grounds of historical significance alone, but as other reviews testify, there's no leaning back on laurels here. It's an in one food and wine destination to suit casual visitors and wine pilgrims alike. Great restaurant ( we had lunch... More
