Description: Our restaurant, Harvest at Laborie, is the canvas upon which internationally acclaimed chef Matthew Gordon renders his culinary art. The menu is contemporary South African with ingredients sourced locally. Free range and organic Karoo lamb, beef and fresh line fish are regular features on the menu, while herbs and vegetables are harvested from the restaurant's own garden. All of these components are cleverly combined to deliver a supreme dining experience hallmarked by depth of flavour and superb presentation. The restaurant has amassed a loyal following and is a #KLINK award-winner, having been singled out from the Cape's plethora of wine tourism destinations by popular vote..

“Top wines on the farm and great revamped restaurant.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Laborie Restaurant is under new management and the historical Estate's restaurant has also been revamped. What an improvement on a year ago. Franciska who manages the tasting room on the farm is amazing and doing a wine tasting is a great experience! This is how it should be done.

“Excellent food, excellent value for money!”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

I expected their food to be expensive, like many a wine farms. This however was not the case!

The Harvet's food was well priced, much better value for money than what I have paid at some very primitive restaurants in Stellenbosch and Cape Town.

The food was also served warm, and attractively on the table. Wek both had tha lamb burger, however I think next time I will try mussels, which looked very good!

Just don't worded Laborie's 2011 Sauvignon Blanc.... I had to dilute it with ice: it was almost unsinkable.
