Description: We invite you to join us at the Restaurant Clos Malverne for the ultimate Food and Wine Experience. Our Restaurant offers you an utterly enjoyable intimate and friendly dining experience in unpretentious but beautiful surroundings. It is not surprising that the bulk of our clientele are people who have been here before as well as their friends and colleagues who have recommended it. As you dine, you and your guests will enjoy an unbelievable vista of the softly sweeping vineyards and rolling hills of Devon Valley - so reminiscent of their English counterpart - and the pastel-coloured mountains behind them. It is an incomparable view that will help create a pleasurable and utterly memorable experience. You'll also enjoy fine gourmet dishes prepared by Executive Chef, Nadia Louw-Smith, renowned for her impeccably-prepared and delicately spiced dishes that seduce the palate. She is one of the most experienced chefs in the country and has been voted Chef of the Year for her sublime dishes. It is not surprising then, that Clos Malverne restaurant has become a favourite of gourmands and has received rave reviews from critics and clients, both in South Africa and abroad. Our kitchen closes at 15:00.

“Great find”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We have visited twice now and every time I was impressed. Both visits we ate the 4 course pairing menu and what a delight. Food was delicious and for the price it was an absolute bargain with 4 glasses of wine and a lovely glass of bubbly upon arrival. Beautiful view and make sure you get a seat near the glass windows.

My only complaint would be that they are not open for regular dinners, but we will keep going back for lunch!

Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful views across the vineyards from the Restaurant. Sample the menu and the accompanying wines to each course. Food is for the true gastronome.
