“Great Experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

What a lovely picturesque venue the Bellavista Country Place is. After a very poor experience at a brewery-type outlet down the road we were more than pleasantly surprised with the ambience and view at Bellavista.
The quail dish was good, although the bird had been a little over done; but the lamb shank that was advertised as having been cooked for 5 hours left quite a lot to be desired. It did not fall off the bone as expected and needed to be coaxed off the bone - the shanks that I do always fall away easily.
Muratie red wine for lunch with our meal went down exceptionally well. Service was great, view spectacular and we would definitely look at staying here for a quiet weekend getaway.

We stayed the second time at Bellavista. The views are georgeous. It is a wonderful lodge a bit outside the busy place Hermanus. It is amindst the Fynbos nature with a magnificient view over Walker Bay. The rooms we stayed in were in perfect condition and quite luxurious. We enjoyed the stay there. The restaurant is also worth mentioning. Excellent quality of food. The chef is from France and has been also trained in UK. Quite unique in that area. The staff of the lodge and the restaurant are very children friendly which is important. There are a number of guesthouses in the De Kelders\Gaansbaai area who do not accept children as guest. Therefore it is worth mentioning that Bellavista is one of the few exceptions.

Bellavista lives up to it's name with superb views of the ocean on one side and mountains to the other.

The suites, all of very high standard, as are the cottages, are a short walk away from the restaurant and pool so there is a feeling of total tranquility.

The restaurant, with a new young chef looks set to be first class, our food was extremeely good, well presented and it's one of the very few restaurants I've come across where a very blue steak comes out as just that!!

Do try his creme brulee with the secret ingredient - stunning!

Whilst not cheap, it offers so much more than a hotel of comparable price - go there and lose yourself for a couple of days. You can also pop down and browse all the antique shops in Stanford then have coffee in the art gallery!
