Description: Hemingway's Restaurant and Wine Cellar is located at Leriba Hotel and Spa,...
Hemingway's Restaurant and Wine Cellar is located at Leriba Hotel and Spa, the award winning 4 and 5 Star Hotel in Centurion. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with understated minimalistic elegance and the ambience reminds of a classic French cafe with splashes of contemporary Provencal style. The indigenous gardens create a perfect backdrop for the sun soaked terrace. The menu revolves around the seasons and is fresh, tasteful and honest. The carefully selected wine collection represents the gems of South African wines to compliment the sumptuous culinary journey with excellent paring suggestions. A feast to awaken your senses.

What should have been a nice evening with friends, turned into an evening filled with complains! The men ordered lamb shanks, I know we are in the middle of a drought, but really! It was a VERY small shank, with no gravy and no salt. The rump was so tough that even the waiter couldn't cut through it. He fetched... More

Great ambience and setting with TV in Bar to keep tabs on the rugby score. Very good wine list. Food wasn't so great this time as portions are small for the price. Presentation and service is good. Is a good restaurant for a special occasion.

If you're looking for proudly-served terrible food and absolutely repulsive service, this is the place to be. Hemingways today is nothing short of a parody of its former self. The restaurant writes of itself: "a feast that will awaken your senses" - those who have dined here will agree that this establishment should be closed with a sense of urgency.... More

Went there on Friday night with my entire family for my birthday, service was poor and food was terrible. We waited almost 45min for the menu. Food was tasteless, portions were small and not well presented. Main course was meat just placed on veggies. Meat was dry, fish was like rubber. We were also over billed but waiter didn't seem...

I attended a wine and food pairing evening at Hemingways and i was in heaven for a few hours. The food was really something special, and the wines were amazing. The atmosphere of the restaurant is tranquil and comfortable and there are beautiful gardens right outside. Definitely recommended.
