The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

What an incredibly fabulous experience. I have often wished that someone would set up a braai restaurant in a beautiful setting so one can sit back and relax whilst others do all the work and voila I find this spot when trawling the Internet for ideas.

From the lovely farm setting, to the warm welcome, the big, friendly dogs to the absolutely delicious food - it was an unforgettable experience. Will recommend it to anyone who would love to have experience authentic South African welcome.

This is my wife's favourite wine farm for some very good reasons. The wine is excellent, the service is always good and the staff very welcoming. They also don't skimp on the tastings. It's hidden away and makes for a great afternoon lazing around with friends and some farm food. Worth a visit (or many).

At first it seems unimpressive, but one needs to understand that this is not the typical Cape Dutch wine estate that is typical to the region. This is more a traditional Afrikaans "Boere" setting with traditional Afrikaner cuisine. Hence the title of this review... We came for the Boere Tapas wine tasting and the Kids wine tasting. The Kids Wine... More

We'd booked the boerebraai for Sunday lunch with friends visiting from Gauteng - I had checked out several reviews and it looked good. We were made to feel very welcome as we arrived, and we were seated under an umbrella in the garden - there's a lot of bird life in the fields which we enjoyed watching while our waitress... More
