“Outstanding meal”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We grumbled a bit that this was a long way from Pringle Bay when it was to be our last meal on this visit to SA. However it was well worth the drive. We shared starters of Greek salad and deep fried squid on a salad. This was followed by two sirloin steaks with a superb sauce and two of what might be described as a tagine of aubergines, tomatoes and onions. Both were delicious. Attentive and helpful staff and the owner was on hand and pleased to meet new diners.




We never fail to be amazed at the quality of the restaurants in SA. In ten visits we have only had ha;f a dozen poor meals

“Beautiful location, stylish buildings,excellent wine, great food and warm service”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had lunch at Gabrieskloof in late December - what a great experience. A friend had recommended that this would be a great lunch stop between Cape Town and Arniston but we could not have expected such a wonderful location and enjoyable lunch.

“Superbe - perfect mix of service and quality food!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The journey to Knysna from Cape Town is marred simply by the lack of decent places to stop, so now we have discovered Gabrielskloof - a vineyard with a fabulous restaurant, surrounded by almost Tuscanesque rolling hills just over 1 hour outside CT. It is open for Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch (as well as extensive tastings of their wines and olive oil if you are in the area) and is a real gem of a find.

Unpretentious in it's overall look, this place really does seem to have got it right. The service was spot on, the menu extensive with an excellent choice of both breakfast and lunch options including a kids menu and fantasitic Illy coffee..... at last!!!!! The children can run around without any worry of them going awol and the views are far reaching and very relaxing - just a stone's throw from the N2.

Will definitely be back either on a Hermanus trip or on the long trip to Knysna.

“most wonderful perfect wedding”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We got married at Gabrielskloof on 1 December 2012. The staff made this day unforgettable, they were so professional, organised and helpful. If you are looking for a wedding venue in the botriver area with spectacular views, the best food ever and reliable service, then this is the place. Thanks to Gabrielskloof for making our big day perfect.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

From entering the Restaurant, you receive proper attention. The floor manager receive you and welcome you with the menu. A waiter is send to your table immediately. Your order is taken properly and specials for the day is announced. The service, food & coffee is excellent. As a bonus you have the fantastic view over the vineyards, while you enjoy your food. The owners, Frans & Marianne are hands on in the restaurant. They make sure that you have an enjoyable experience
