Description: You’ll discover that Clos Malverne restaurant offers you an utterly enjoyable intimate and friendly dining experience in unpretentious but beautiful surroundings. It is not surprising that the bulk of our clientele are people who have been here before as well as their friends and colleagues who have recommended it. As you dine, you and your guests will enjoy an unbelievable vista of the softly sweeping vineyards and rolling hills of Devon Valley - so reminiscent of their English counterpart – and the pastel-coloured mountains behind them. It is an incomparable view that will help create a pleasurable and utterly memorable experience. You’ll also enjoy fine gourmet dishes prepared by one of South Africa’s most experienced top Executive Chefs, Nadia Louw, renowned for her impeccably-prepared and delicately spiced dishes that seduce the palate. She is one of the most experienced chefs in the country and has been voted Chef of the Year for her sublime dishes.

View the view!!! Value the value for money deals, savour the food, fall in love with the wine, see the art work... what an lovely afternoon! Excellent service by Brandon, our waiter. Informative, knowledgeable, helpful, polite and with a smile. What more can one ask for to make a special occasion even better? Maybe very, very tasty food, generous glasses... More

My sister held her wedding reception at Clos Malverne yesterday and it was truly outstanding. There were 26 guests and we were accommodated in the room adjoining the main restaurant. The weather was magnificent and we were able to open all the windows to the beautiful gardens. We were served the food and wine pairing menu and I think that... More

Many of the top restaurants in the Cape offer a food and wine pairing or tasting menu that locals sometimes cannot afford. Clos Malverne is different. Here you get a wine and food pairing 4 course menu at a most affordable price and excellent value for money. The setting is spectacular and from the moment you walk into this large... More

From the moment you walk into this place, you know that you're going to have a good time. The restaurant has artwork hanging on the walls, available to buy if you wish. The view is to die for, the staff, but in particular our waiter who's name I cant remember, was so great. He explained everything in detail and made... More

Beautiful views match scrumptious food and great wine. I went with some friends for a lovely food and wine pairing lunch. We were spoilt with a great table which enabled us to absorb the lovely mountain scenery while eating. Time needs to be taken over lunch to fully enjoy the food and the wine that is matched with each course.... More

Sunday afternoon drive to Stellenbosch, a turn at the Devon Valley turn-off and we arrived at Clos Malverne restaurant. We meant to have a game of backgammon with a glass of wine and perhaps a cheese platter, but that never happened. The obliging & frlendly hostess had a table set for us outside in moments and captivated by the warm... More

My husband and I went on one rainy Saturday afternoon.. we got a window seat and luckily the weather cleared up for us to see the beautiful view of our favourite place- Stellenbosch. The service was great and we got a complimentary white wine. The food was amazing and the chocolate fondant was one of the best we've had. Definitely... More
