Spent a lazy afternoon here in the beautiful picturesque surroundings. Stunning views and very relaxing. There is a restaurant attached to the winery where you can do a wine tasting. The staff at both sides of the venue are very friendly and accommodating. We just ordered a cheese platter with our wine tasting so cannot comment on the food at... More

Dieu Donne is worth a visit for the location/view alone, but try to avoid the weekends, which are very busy and often partly closed due to functions. The food is very good, nice personnel, but service tend to be slow. The manor wines are quite good, but there are far better options on their excellent wine list.

I experienced a wonderful wine tasting at the Dieu Donné Vineyards yesterday. Amy and Adele are exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their wines. My friend and I tasted 5 different wines, including the exceptionally good Methode Cap Classic which is now one of my favourites. I was impressed at the 2012 Merlot - not as light as merlot usually... More

We ate lunch here today, sitting outside. The view is a given and is fantastic. The food was amazing too. I had the chicken ceasar and my father had the salmon which he thought was amazing. I liked the beer and wine we had too, and we finished with a plate of fruit which was just right. The service was... More

We came here on the wine tram tour and had booked for lunch. We intended to have our wine tasting after but couldn't tear ourselves from the view or the food. Typically I expect "destination" restaurants to have average food but this place had amazing food and views. So glad we held out eating until we got here. So sad... More

We were able to squeeze in wine tasting after a visit to the Roca Restaurant on the estate. Wonderful views, lovely wine and welcoming and friendly staff. If we did it again we would allow two hours to soak in the ambience and views.

Brilliant cheese platter and cheap wine by the glass. Made a good end stop to the tram tour. Had excellent views of the valley and rounded off the day well. Cab Sav / Shiraz blend was the best red of the day.

Stopped there on the wine tram red line. Wine was ok, but tasting area felt outdated and rundown. Needs a revamp. Beautiful views though.
