“Great atmosphere and decor a must visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The setting the county side not far from Johannesburg . We enjoyed the drive and the location is tucked I'm away from the main road down a gravel road. We arrived to a friendly guard and gated secure Italian ruin villa full if mystery the walk to the Resturant was intriguing. The Resturant was amazing the decor stunning. The service superb. We felt the food was well presented and tasty, however we felt that the menu was best suited for Winter. We also thought that the food was a bit rich. The price was as expected a bit in the high end of the scale so it was no shocker . We did not get to see the owner or manager anywhere and felt that personal touch was missing. Overall it was well worth the drive and for the decor and a great escape away from Johannesburg would definitely recommend a visit.

“Bellgables - Outstanding Venue!! You must Try It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We held our wedding at Bellgables on 8 December 2012. Errol, Harry and all the staff made our day a dream come true! The decor, the food, the service and the overall voluptuous ambience are to be experienced to be believed. As a bride who is a bit of a control freak this venue made sure that everything was done to perfection - I did not need to worry or check up on any of the arrangements. Errol provided the support, guidance and necessary glass of champagne I needed. The extra care and attention given just made it that much more special! Add to all of this, Errol and Harry gave us a very special and personal wedding present which just shows how deeply they care!!!

We have been to Bellgables numerous times for dinners, wine tastings and Christmas lunch this last Christmas and NEVER been disappointed!!! This is a treasure for us living in Johannesburg!! Their wine tastings are wonderful evenings with entertainment, divine food and excellent wines

We are truely blessed to have had our special day at Bellgables and in the process Errol has become a good friend!!!

“Bellgables”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

I spent Christmas day at Bellgables Country Restaurant. I feel it was the worst day of my life. The service was so bad that we had to request that the dirty dishes be removed from our table after each course. No-one came to enquire as to whether we wanted more drinks. I was there for 5 hours and had 4 courses. My lamb was under-cooked and a fellow diner's lamb was burnt. If I hadn't had to wait so long between courses, the situation wouldn't have been so dire. There was no sign of management. A very over-priced and disappointing meal.

“An extraordinary experience ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Errol Gobey, maitre chef de cuisine, presides over this haven of sensory and culinary delight in the country north-west of Johannesburg. The impressive belle epoque slash baroque decor is complemented by excellent cuisine, service and presentation. A meal at Bellgables is truly an extraordinary experience!
