We did the master wine tasting which was a great experience. Each wine was paired with a type of cheese, and we tasted the Fairview Olive Oil, which was delicious. The only critique was the very slow service as there was only one person dealing with all of the tables in the master wine tasting area.

A great experince of wine pairing. Under the guifance of one of the Best Sommeliers I have experienced , (Liaan), the best wine and cheese pairing I have experinced. Spoilt by tasting their Le Syrah red, paired with cream cheese and black pepper. Fantastic experience. Will be back.

Fairview is a must visit for any traveller coming to Paarl. Their restaurant is amazxing and always but always a buzz! Just love the atmosphere there. Wine tasting is also relatively cheap and even though I dont consume alcohol I always accompany my friends when they do and they love it at Fairview. The little bistro shop is my absolute... More

We visited for a cheese and wine tasting, which of course sounds amazing! It was however a bit disappointing - the guy pouring the wine didn't really make an effort to interact and tell us about the aroma/flavour..the cheese is on the other side so you have to walk in between back and forth... I suggest putting the cheese plates... More

Great place for a bite of lunch and a great glass of wine. Spectacular location! I really enjoyed the variety of cheeses, the breads were to die for! The portions are quite big but we shared lots of small dishes to get a variety! The service was also great.

Our third visit to this unique restaurant set in the wine land near Paarl. We arrived shortly after opening at 9 am and it appeared that staff were still readying the restaurant for the days service. It took sometime to be served and getting a cup of coffee seemed to pose the staff with a challenge. The food was very... More

Excellent food and a great atmosphere! Great kiddies menu as well. Fairview Brut makes the perfect choice for a champagne breakfast anywhere!

My Wife and I like wine, but we love cheese. This was our favourite wine farm experience. Its a private room where you have a dedicated expert to walk you through eight wines and cheeses (Goats and cow) Trying both at the same time made the experince outstanding. Dont forget to visit the Goat tower outside, and the restaurant -... More
