Our hotel recommended this restaurant although we have had received mixed feedback. We had a prime table at the huge window overlooking the Hemel and Aarde Valley - such splendour! We had absolutely no complaints about the food since it was top notch and it paired well with a La Vierge Chardonnay. The pork belly can really be recommended.

We arrived here on the spur of the moment decision. They fitted us in with a great table at the main window. Service, food etc was very good even though they were very busy - highly recommended.

We were out for the day, tasting the wines the area had to offer and popped in for lunch. Having not been here before did not know what to expect of the food. We were on a tight schedule and hence only had time for mains and I was not disappointed. I had the Asian Pork Belly which was delightful.... More

The Hemel and Aarde Valley is world famous for excellent wineries. La Vierge is no exception. Their wines are excellent and I love the labels and the stories behind every wine. The menu is very limited unfortunately and they don't really cater for vegetarians. The food is excellent however. The service outstanding and the views - magnificent. Essential to book.

Second time we had lunch here. This time we had wine tasting first and were pleasantly surprised with their wines.! The shiraz and the Nymphomane is recommendable!. Had ceasar salad and Pork belly for main - and Mussel for a starter which was huge! Too much even to share. Will definitely go back!

This was the spot where we had our small wedding day lunch some 6 years back, although under new ownership, and not all we had heard since the change was good, however, I am delighted to inform all that very little has changed from the earlier years. Great venue in a perfectly positioned spot. It was rather busy some weeks... More

Wayne is a great chef and has put together a menu with sufficient choice with great quality . The restaurant is only open lunchtimes and is a perfect choice for a light lunch and a good glass of wine with an amazing view. Staff were friendly and attentive .

Having seen the fine food available at Creation, we arrived quite late at La Vierge and were more than happy to see that they offered a very simple wine tasting platter for 2 - a simple tapas of 5 plates - to go with a couple of the wines, a glass each of Nymphomane (Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Cabernet Franc) and...

We were staying in Hermanus & decided to drive up to this lovely winery for some wine tasting & nibbles for lunch. Fantastic elevated position overlooking a valley of wine farms, the setting is idyllic. They have a large sun deck with casual seating, so you can sit back with a glass of wine & take in the views. We... More

Decided with a few friends to do the Hemel en Aarde wine route, which is the Southern most situated wine route in the country. Being a Sunday a lot of them are closed, so stopped at La Vierge for a wine tasting. When we were seated outside, enjoying the most beautiful views we decided to have a snack to accompany... More
