Good food .... Good service ..... Good views

We went here for my son-in-law's 40th Birthday breakfast ..... wonderful choice of restaurant. We had a table outside, with the most glorious views, and near enough to the children's play area for us to keep on eye on the kidlets. Although the breakfast menu is quite limited, there was enough... read more

When we arrived at the estate, we were told by the guy at the gate that this restaurant was fully booked. As we had hoped to get some lunch we were a bit disappointed. However, we thought - we'll just go and see. No problem they said, as long as we were ok to sit outside on the sofas with... More

I booked a table for 4 some time in advance as this was a request from 2 chefs and Quality Controllers from Germany. I mentioned this at the booking and we had a beautiful table outside with stunning views. Our waiter, Len, obviously knew about the restaurant test and was more than helpful and attentive. We followed one of his... More

We walked in on Sunday late morning without a reservation- something I would not recommend. The staff were most helpful in trying to accommodate us and followed this with impeccable service during our meal. The food tasted as if the ingredients were harvested just minutes earlier , which they probably were. great coffee to and of course the Vergelegen wines... More

This restaurant has a view over the Vergelegen wine estate and the Helderberg and Hottentots Holland mountains.A well-designed children's play centres flanks he building.It is popular for breakfasts and lunches and the eggs benedict is recommended.

These are normally my main parameters to judge a place for my tripadvisor comments: location. Venue. Service. Food and cost. Well. For the second time since I'm writing and adding comments here on Tripadvisor I'm going give Five Stars. There was nothing not right. The place and the estate surrounding the restaurant are outstanding with also few attractions and things... More
