Stopped for lunch and wine at this delightful spot. Friendly staff. Very relaxed lunch which consisted of several tapas dishes, superbly prepared and presented. Memorable experience. It goes without saying the wine was sublime, sadly we'd could not bring any home.

Along the wine route you are simply spoilt for choice. This was my first visit here and I was not disappointed. Staff were friendly and efficient - service with a smile!! food was excellent - made of fresh local produce!! I loved the Morgenhof Rose Pinotage - music to my palate with its soft and almost velvetty texture, easy to... More

We had no idea what to expect when we visited this lovely vineyard. We ate a lovely lunch. They do fortified wine here too and what a way to finish lunch with a cheese board and a great port. The food here is so fresh and in season. Its a dream. Using the Euro you really get value for your... More

We visited this stunningly beautiful wine estate as our last stop on our 'Wine Flies' excursion out of Cape Town. The wines here were the best we tasted & I bought a mixed case of delicious whites. They play music to the vines to help them grow, which may seem a bit quirky, but you can't knock the vino!!

After a couple of very pleasant previous visits once for lunch and a return for their picnic we made a third trip a couple of weeks ago - what a big mistake. Service was really poor and the staff totally disinterested. When I spoke to the person in charge she gave the impression that she wasn't particularly worried either and... More

I was very interested in Morgenhof as a wedding venue and really wanted to find out more about the venue as it is really beautiful. Unfortunately, the service i received was less than adequate. The wedding coordinator has not gotten back to me in over 2 weeks and the restaurant manager who showed me around the venue was rather rude... More

The self catering kitchen also looked very tired and the honesty bar was non existing. The food in the... More

We stopped here en route to Franschhoek. I LOVE wine tasting and could not keep passing wineries without stopping so we pulled in here. The grounds were nice with great backgrounds for photos. There were few people around. The tasting room was small and overall unappealing. Nothing seemed very "distinct." The wines were average. The staff was friendly and attentive.

Returned here after four years and felt the place was a bit run down and shabby. They did not really promote the wine tasting which is what we all came for. Dirty tables and very poor service. We were really disappointed on this occasion by the service we received. They seem to depend more on the restaurant and weddings rather... More
