Description: La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.

“Good Wine - but TERRIBLE SERVICE !”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Terrible terrible service ! The staff spoke about smoking in front of us and ate wraps in front of us. They showed us no interest and pushed us into the corner even thouh we were basically the only ones in house. They were prepping for a wedding so it was disorganised, impersonal and noisy. The staff were rude and spoke about getting drunk and partying so loudly it made us feel uncomfortable and unwanted ! They walked around drinking their own wine - think its even paid for ? Overall I WOULD not recommend this place to anyone !!!!!!

“A lovely Find”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were recommended La Vierge by someone at a winery we were visiting. Bistro food with Great views. The food was excellent and the views over the Hemel en Aarde Valley were amazing. In our group the people enjoyed the wines recommended for their meals.

“Beautiiful view spot”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We arrived here on a rainy/foggy afternoon just after 3pm and their restaurant just closed, but they graciously prepared a cheese platter with some sausage chunks, to go with their wines. We cannot really comment on their food quality or value due to our after-hours arrival. However, nice service, with a great view into the hemel en aarde valley (we verified it on the next, sunlit day). Cozy spot and good wines. Try it.

“Back to the 80"s”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Dated 80's decor and building with no atmosphere but with great views. Boring old fashioned menu . We returned a medium rare steak as it was overcooked ,and they returned it charred and even more well done.Plate glass window overlooking the vines at the urinal was the highlight.

This is a well put together restaurant with a fantastic view. Indoors or out, you will enjoy the food and atmosphere.
