no atmosphere or smiles on staffs faces, not even happy or welcoming...no service or any interest in serving us. It is sad but i have never had an enjoyable experience there.

One of our favourite "get out of Jhb" venues for lunch. Have been there many times and will continue to support them, great food, good service, friendly staff and a great view to relax and have lunch.

I went here many years ago with friends and thoroughly enjoyed all the cheeses. I went again with my boyfriend and it was not at all as I remember. Our 'cheese platter' was an absolute joke and the wine was horrible. Unfortunately will never go back.

I love visiting here. It feels authentic. When you visit a farm, it should feel like a farm, and Van Gaalens does. The food won't get a Michelin rating, and the furniture could do with an upgrade. But that's not why you should be going there. It's a wholesome experience just outside of the city, that leaves you with a... More

Unfathomable amount of single and jeep track.. i'm quite sure you can ride here for 8 hours and not get to all the tracks. Would definitely see me again, just unfortunate it's a bit far from pretoria, but well worth the drive. We had some of the great micro brewery beers afterwards, which is absolute magic after a long ride.... More
