La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.

Great location, tasty freshly cooked food

Advice : Book! We trailed along the R320 and found one restaurant just not serving and another fully booked. We slipped in late here. The staff were very pleasant, service took a little while as they had a large coach party but they apologised, gave us bread, oil and balsamic vinegar and then did... read more

What a disappointment! The service was terrible and the management had no interest in what was happening around them! Had to keep on asking for ice for our drinks etc etc! What a shame it's such a beautiful setting and the food was average. The bill and the end did not justify our experience!

My hubby and I went there for our one year anniversary and pitchedup without a booking to take a chance. We were greeted by a lovely waitress and seated smack bang in the middle of the big glass windows. Views were perfect! We got a recommended wine (The Last Temptation Reisling) and it was tremendous! Absolutely lovely we had two... More

We had a great lunch at La Vierge when we stopped by to take a pause! The restaurant is lovely situated overlooking the valley. The interior is pleasant; a lot of pieces of art and paintings and a court for playing boule on the balcony!  We had a nice wine tasting; got a table at the window and enjoyed the... More

My wife and I were visiting the wine route in Hermanus and were recommended to go here for lunch, dropped in and reserved at table for later on. On our return we tried their wines and decided that the Rose wine was suitable for our lunchtime feast, but the restaurant had no rose wines , so they very kindly allowed... More

In January 2016 I phoned to make a booking as part of our 5 year wedding anniversary. I confirmed the date and time. I then phoned a second time to confirm that it was indeed an anniversary so that we may get a special table. I arrived on the 8th of January at a closed restaurant. A lady that was... More

Don't consider this restaurant. After waiting for one hour for our starters my mussels were so poorly done that I couldn't even open five of them and the pita bread which was included in the menu was not brought (they had run out before we ordered but did not tell us). Once I asked about the pita bread I was... More

We had a booking for a table of 12, with family visiting from Germany. Our booking was for 1pm. By 3pm we had not even received our starters !!! Complaining had no effect whatsoever. We asked for bread, which had not even been offered. Tables that arrived long after ours were served before us. When the food eventually arrived at... More

We visited La Vierge on Saturday the 2nd of January, and while it was a very busy day (resulting in average to below average service), the food was tasty and the views over the hemel and Aarde Valley plentiful. All in all a nice experience.

What was right: the location. What was wrong: everything else. Luke warm reception on arrival. Offered a table at the back of the restaurant whilst all window tables empty. Champagne served warm, dirty cutlery, overstressed waitress who was only at the table to deliver food - never top up drinks, place cutlery on the table in preparation for the main... More
