The view of the Stellenbosch mountains in the background, the yellow-brown leaves of the berry orchard and grape vines in a cool autumn afternoon. That was the perfect backdrop to an exquisite meal at the Hillcrest Berry Farm. The farm store sells farm-made jams, honey infused with different flavors. The baked cheese cake with berry coulis is a must-have!

View from this place is too good. Food is not bad, but fresh berries with cream or ice cream is the best thing to have here. Service is reasonably good. Best time to visit is around lunch time but not in a hurry.

The view from the restaurant in the Banghoek valley is stunning, with the Stellenbosch mountains rising to majestic heights. However, the breakfast was a great disappointment. The service is slow, very slow. The farmer's breakfast had two overcooked fried eggs (not easy-over as I have ordered), an overcooked strip of bacon, and small portions each of tinned baked beans and... More

One of best breakfasts on offer anywhere in the world in a wonderful setting in the Stellenbosch Valley. A totally enjoyable experience, all marmalades and jams made with fruit grown in their own orchards. So relaxing after a exhaustive night in Cape Town.

To start off with, the weather was glorious and the view from the terrace was beautiful. The service was excellent: friendly and efficient. The food was good. The menu is quite extensive and the prices are acceptable.. There is also a small delicatessen where I purchased the most delicious fresh figs.

Love the view, the food, the berry smoothies and cheesecake with berry coulis. Can also buy frozen berries and coulis and all sorts of other delicious things here to take home!

A glorious summers day and what a great day to drive to Helshoogte and experience this amazing restaurant. I took family and friends with and everyone had a really great meal and we all planned to be back to try the high tea. The ingredients in all the meals were so fresh and everyone had fun tasting each others meals.

We visited Hillcrest Berry Farm on two occasions. The service wasn't bad, but the menu is way overpriced for what you get. I had a three egg omelette with tomato and cheese for R60! The omelette was definitely made with only two eggs and wasn't seasoned, there was about an eighth of a tomato on and about 10g of cheese.... More

Whenever in the Western Cape I try to make a point of lunching at this casual "different" venue! Set outside Stellenbosch and the road to Franschhoek, it's an easy scenic drive. The mountain view from this eatery (especially if you sit outside under the big market umbrellas) is quite spectacular and worth the trip alone! The menu caters for breakfasts;... More
