Description: In the 1800’s, long before the town of Pretoria came to be, the Erasmus family settled on Brakfontein farm. The “waenhuis”, built in 1841, and the “Voortrekkershuis”, built around 1854 still stand on the property today. The location has been declared a Historical Heritage Site. In 1895, the “Here Huis”, was built, and the house remained largely unchanged from its original form until 2007/8 when it was beautifully and painstakingly restored to its previous splendour. The “Here Huis” is now a restaurant where people can come to enjoy and admire this historical monument! Much of the original building materials, brought from England to South Africa by sea, still remain in the house. There are even original chandeliers, restored to their former beauty, hanging in some rooms. The restored Douglas-fir wooden floors were brought over from the Americas by Spanish ships in the eighteenth century and are not to be missed. Today we invite you to join in the preservation and celebration of this remarkable piece of history in the true spirit of South Africa and her people. Let our world renowned hospitality, unique interpretation of traditional cuisine and elegant country charm allow you to experience extraordinary fused gourmet.

“Great setting and food”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

We have been to Garouge on two occasions, one for a wine tasting evening and the other just a normal dinner. The location is very tranquil and quite set in a old country house. The food was great - on the wine tasting evening it was a set menu but everything we have had so far has been great. The wine cellar is also very well stocked.
