“Amazing food and wonderful service set in the most idyllic scenery.”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We enjoyed a 7 course degustation at Villa du Pays. Each course was amazing, the steak and venison were perfectly cooked and the accompaniments only enhanced the dishes, the twist on the pumpkin ravioli was sensational.
The attention to detail in the food was spectacular, it was beautifully plated and you could almost taste the passion put into each and every dish.
The wine to accompany each dish matched wonderfully, and was described to us in detail, which just made the experience all the more intimate. The knowledge about the food and wine from the staff was perfect and very informative.
The setting is just breath taking, overlooking the stunning vineyards with mountains in the back ground. A perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday.
Thanks for the superb food, wine and for looking after us.

All in all a great place to go, exciting food, great staff and perfectly situated.

“Very enjoyable restaurant”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

A lovely family lunch at Villa Du Pays, Leogate Estate. The staff, friendly, welcoming, great service and with a tad of fun, perfect thank you. We had three courses, the antipasto so fresh and tasty, all the mains were extra delicious and cooked to perfection and what ever you do don't miss out on desert. Together with a glass or two of Leogate vino it all made for a perfect special occasion.

“A unique dining experience - not to be missed!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Villa du Pays at Leogate Estate Wines, Pokolbin is a joy from the moment you arrive until coffee is served.
The plush, sophisticated décor and quiet ambience of the restaurant is truly unique for the area and sets the scene for an unforgettable dining experience.
Whether it be a romantic dinner for two (our first visit) or a special occasion party for a larger group (our 2nd visit), you will enjoy the same excellent level of service.
The magnificent surroundings are complimented by a sophisticated menu which caters for all tastes and offers an opportunity to try that something special and different which will not disappoint. The staff are totally familiar with the menu of the day and display an educated knowledge of their Leogate Wines.
We highly recommend the Villa du Pays/Leogate Estate experience.

“60 + 1 Birthday Lunch”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We had the most delicious 3 course lunch at the Villa du Pays. The service was fantastic and the 3 guys in the kitchen did a fantastic job with the meals. The dessert was light and a delightful way to end the meal. the steak was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended - Great Atmosphere, Fantastic service and the Ambience is truly beautiful. We are glad that we had lunch there, today. We are looking forward to having brunch on a weekend in the near future.

“Excellent Meal and Service”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

I had dinner here for a speciall occasion at the end of April.

I was able to book in the day before which was excellent and got the 5 course tasting menu, I got the normal menu and my partner the vegetarian which the staff were very accomodating for over the phone.

Both sets of meals were delicious and of a very high standard as was the service, I will definitely return. i am not usually a seafood fan but when it is part of an excellent range of courses I always enjoy it, the cured kingfish was a standout and the wines matched perfectly.

Found out about it as we had spied the new Leogate cellar door and visitied previously and seen the restaurant.
