“Out of the Way but well worth the Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Spent a lovely afternoon here - excellent and reasonably priced wines, friendly service and enjoyed the meal...wonderful hostess. I had the platter which was excellent and the others had chicken pie which was O.K. Cloof wines are of exceptional quality and are not expensive.

The Darling Wine Route is not all that popular but I would recommend a visit to Cloof and Groote Post as a great excursion. The roads are rough so be prepared!

“A day to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Truly a wonderful experience. We were a group of 8 and had so many laughs and such great memories were made. The wine tasting was super fun and Ida Van Tonder is such an amazing hostess. We decided to have lunch and we were all well impressed with the good food. Well worth going for an afternoon with family and friends.

“Lovely lunch and wine tasting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We had a lovely lunch, malay curry, chicken pie, wrap, burger and toasted sandwiches. The wine tasting was not as informative as the other cellars we visited, but we tasted lovely twines and ended up buying the sexy shiraz, lynchpin, merlot and a lovely dessert wine 40 days.

“Fantastic ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went there for Sunday lunch. R 150 per person was affordable. The food was good but not outstanding. Negative was that when we ask for some for meat on the buffet we were told that they first have enoug for everyone.... and that although everyone made a reservation. That is bad planning.We did some wine tasting before. We do think that the service for the wine tasting could have been more professional.
For children there was only a pool but too deep to leave them alone so the experience is more for couples without kids.
