We visited Cape Town in January/March and during this time we visited Clos Malvern four times. The menu has a wine pairing and the food on offer is very varied. Both the food and wine together with the service and views make this am must for any visitors to Stellenbosch visit.

The Restaurant at Clos Malverne had their first food and wine pairing since winter started and in a way we celebrated an early start to spring. The weather was magnificent and the food and wine (all from Clos Malverne) crowned a fantastic evening. Some may view it as expensive, but it really is worth every cent. The evening ended with...

What a wonderful way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon with good friends in the Winelands. Amazing views, a truly delicious meal and excellent service all added to the experience. I certainly recommend the Food and Wine Pairing menu as this is a great opportunity to try several wonderful dishes as well as excellent wines. Our server for the day... More

The food and wine pairing offered at Clos Malverne definitely makes the drive out of Stellenbosch worth it. It is great value for money as well as great food and wine! Ask for a table next to the front windows to get a spectacular view across the vineyard. This could also be a great anniversary getaway if you stay overnight... More

What a superb afternoon we had. The winter log fire was welcoming inside whilst the sun beckoned through the glass frontage of the restaurant, which in turn allowed superb views up the avenues of vines and onto the mountain ranges. We took both the wine food pairing and some meals off the A la Carte menu. The range was superb... More

We celebrated our daughter's wedding on Saturday with an outstanding reception at Clos Malverne. From initial planning stages to the departure of the guests, Nadia and Anita and their teams acted with great professionalism and their expertise ensured that our expectations were resoundingly exceeded. The service was excellent, the food outstanding (as were the wines) and the absolutely delicious and... More

One of the best settings in the Cape Winelands! Somewhat off the beaten track, but that makes this setting so much more special. Great food to go with great wine. Will return to do the ice cream and wine or the food and wine pairings.

What a wonderful time we had at Clos Malvern, where the food really taste as good as it looks! Opting for the food & wine pairing menu was a worthwhile experience. Subtle tastes are blended delicately and perfectly with the main feature of every dish impeccably paired with the Clos Malvern wines. In the 5 times I've been there I... More
