The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

We'd booked the boerebraai for Sunday lunch with friends visiting from Gauteng - I had checked out several reviews and it looked good. We were made to feel very welcome as we arrived, and we were seated under an umbrella in the garden - there's a lot of bird life in the fields which we enjoyed watching while our waitress... More

This was the last stop on our visit to South Africa, and one of our favorites. Our whole family enjoyed the traditional South African braai (barbeque). The grounds are beautiful, and it was fun to see where the meat is cooked out back. They had a huge dog that came into the dining area, (almost as tall as our table)... More

Spent Friday afternoon on a team building outing with my company. Ben is amazing host and so personal and made the cellar tour interactive and interesting. We got fed, home made braai bread and snoek pate, along with some amazing white and red wines. Treated to the BoereBraai, just how a south African feast should be, braai broedjies, corn, chops,...

What an amazing experience me and my colleagues had at this prestigious wine farm. We had the great honor of being taken through on an educational trip through the wine making process before settling in for one of the best braais I've ever had! Their Momberg flagship wine is one of my favorite reds and the pot broodtjies are definitely... More

Visited for a friend's birthday and we were a group of about 20 South Africans, with several young children. I would definitely recommend the Middelvlei Boerebraai to both South Africans and tourists. There is loads of space for the kids to run around, and the friendly dogs who live there seem happy with all the attention. Our waitress was very... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on your Boerebraai experience at Middelvlei! I always knew that foreign visitors will be intrigued by this authentic South African food experience. Little did I realize that it is exactly the authenticity that also excite our local South African guests. Nothing like a Boerebraai braaibroodjie! More

With our accommodation and the Boerebraai restaurant receiving so many compliments one sometimes forgets that Middelvlei is actually in the wine business ! There are so many wonderful offerings in the Stellenbosch winelands and therefore we value your opinion of your wine experience at Middelvlei even more. Thank you very much for the positive feed-back, More
