If you want a convenient lunch stop between Cape Town and the Garden Route then look no further. Friendly family service, top quality wholesome food at a reasonable price.

We popped into this restaurant completely at random off the the highway. And what a pleasant surprise it was! The burgers were works of art, big, fat patties in a fresh bun. The chicken pie I ate was excellent. The setting is also very nice - the back yard is a european garden, and just beyond a flower nursery. Bought a couple of bags of boutique candies to suck on for the remainder of the drive to Cape Town. Would visit again.

The aroma of freshly ground coffee being served at the bar by a smiling lady greeted us, a great start!
Efficient and friendly service, very good food, one of the most tastily prepared salads I've had in South Africa. "Real" chips, excellent steak, and an absolutely lovely garden.
We bought some of the home-baked bread,delicious, and particularly appreciated by my French husband. Lots of other local produce to buy in the shop.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your visit to us. It's really nice to hear from customers that appreciate the effort both Jeanne and myself try to put in to making Stormsvlei Farmstall & Restaurant a place for people that enjoy great quality, fresh food. It's lovely to hear from people that understand what bread should be like too.
If you are passing again we would love you to stop hear with us again. All the best.

We were on a 5 hour drive between Paarl and Great Brak River and decided to stop off for a light refreshment and to use the restroom. We thought maybe a sandwich but when we saw the food being delivered to other tables, we decided on a full lunch. The food was fantastic- everything is homemade and freshly produced and tastes accordingly. Our hostess was welcoming and our waitress was so friendly and competent. Two days later, on our return trip from Great Brak River to Hermanus, we stopped by again. This time we shared (recommended by our hostess, wife of the chef) a wonderful crock of homemade chicken liver parfait and toasted homemade bread, with salad, onion marmalade and some local white wine. The damage? A recession agreeable equivalent of €25 for 2. Don't pass this one by!

We stopped at this beautiful place just to have a cup of coffee on our way back from Garden Route Game Lodge to Cape Town. Quite by surprise we found fantastic food, lovely garden and spent there much more time when planned. Should I mention nice, welcoming hosts? Recommed to everyone, especially cheese and ham lovers.
