Dropped in for a coffee on the way back from a road trip. Great coffee and cake. Shopped in the cheese bar and stocked up on some well priced cheeses and fresh ciabatta. Happy customer!

The cheeses, breads etc. (deli) Bought some lovely goats cheese, jams. We did not eat there but bought foodstuffs to make our own snacks. Beautiful setting with well kept gardens and loved the goats when entering.

The setting is beautiful and the Goat tower a novelty but the menu is nothing to get exited about. With all the fresh produce in the area I am sure a much more exiting menu and atmosphere can be produced in the Goat Shed restaurant.

We went there for a birthday breakfast and it was so lovely. A warm atmosphere fills this restaurant with friends, family and laughter all around. The cappuccino here is so rich, fresh and creamy delicious! The parma ham panini as well as the vegetable panini was so good. Vegetables were properly cooked still semi crispy. The others also enjoyed their... More

They got the best wine and prices are reasonable. Tour guides are quite knowledgeable. The cheeses are so nice and I learned what cheeses should be taken with which wines.

A lovely setting in the Boland. Trails to run like no other. A cosy restaurant with lovely food and wine. The cheese and wine-tasting is a must! Also great wine specials in original 6 pack packaging. A great choice in all weather conditions. Great for the kids also with the goats and wishing pond.

I visited here as a stop on the excellent one day wine tour with Wine Flies. This was our fifth and final winery located in Paarl and it was great! We enjoyed six wine and cheese pairings including Sauvignon Blanc with Feta, then Chenin Blanc with Camembert, then Viognier with cream cheese with sweet chili which was a knockout, then... More

I'll let others review the restaurant. We popped in to buy some cheese and taste some wine and left with 5 packs of cheese for the hotel fridge and a feeling that we'd like to go back and check out the food. It's not exactly an easy venue to get to but it's easy to recommend for the variety of... More

Good food and the cheese is very nice, really enjoyed the beautiful wine with lunch and it was all very good value for money. The goats at the entrance is a welcome surprise.
