What a gem in the heart of the Boland! Excellent food from an international British Chef in the back and his South African born wife playing host in the front. We popped in here for a quick lunch and was so blown away by die pork burger and the cheesecake...oh the cheesecake! Went back for a second time and had... More

We stopped at Stormsvlei Restaurant and farmstall on a weekend trip to the Southern Cape AND returned on our drive back. We first stopped for tea and cake to see what the place was about, bought some cheeses and biltong and returned for lunch on our way back after looking at the tempting menu... On our return trip we had... More

Arriving here is a bit like stepping back in time. Definitely assisted by the power failure the poor management were experiencing - they were doing their best to provide services without benefit of electricity, and managed to be welcoming in spite of their outage. Coffees were forthcoming, the pastry selection were so gorgeous looking they very nearly had me off... More

We have eaten here quite a few times and were never disappointed. We love to sit outside on the stoep and take a walk in the lovely garden. Do order the Belgian chocolate cheesecake, if available, it is unbelievably good. A lovely, tranquil place to have lunch.

Called at Stormsvlei unannounced for a lunch break while travelling in S A and was most impressed with the welcome and excellent food. Well done Steven & Jeanne.

This is one of those times when you shouldn't take any notice of your first impressions of a place! I wasn't too optimistic when we entered the building, which seemed quite dark (especially after the bright sunshine) and pretty deserted. Any concerns were quickly banished, however, when we were ushered through to the terrace, which is situated on the edge... More

Travelling between Knysna and Hermanus it's was time for lunch and there is no better place than the Farm Stall at Stormsvlei just sat back from the N2. The staff were attentive and a pleasure to be served by and the food and wine were excellent. Whilst waiting for the food to arrive take a walk around the beautiful gardens... More
