Taking friends to lunch we arrived at this beautiful winery to experience an excellent tasting room for both wine and olive oils, with charming and knowledgeable staff. The restaurant position overlooking lawns and lake are beautiful, and the food is excellent with of course an excellent selection of varietal, locally produced wines. Well worth a visit.

I visited the restaurant with my 2 daughters after viewing Lourensford as a wedding venue. The setting is beautiful. The staff welcomed us to the restaurant, even though they had not yet opened for business. We enjoyed delicious food, catering for the pescatarian and the vegan in our group. Definitely recommended.Thank you for taking the time to review MILLHOUSE kitchen.We are thrilled that you had a great time. Your positive comments keep us inspired to keep up the good work.

Had a Family breakfast celebrating my Birthday!The staff were very good and tentative, breakfast choices were great, with a huge selection. There is a huge “play area” outside, which makes it great for kids.The only negative is the “entrance fee” you have to pay to gain access tothe Restaurant, where other Estates in the vicinity do not.Many thanks for the positive review and for taking the time to comment on your visit to Vergelegen Estate and our Stables Restaurant, it is much appreciated.Kind regardsSharon Hosking

We visited this fantastic scenic restaurant from the year it was opened and had this year again a fantastic evening there. We all have chosen the tasting menu , 8 courses and another four amuses. i will not elaborate about the different courses as they change it regularly. But the way it was served and the quality of all of them was perfect. When you are in the region do not forget to go here.

We booked a table for lunch,due to the cool weather we sat inside and could'nt really enjoy the view.We all found the waiter, David, strange. No interaction on such a vast menu. When my husband ordered 2 starters as his main meal,he quite obnoxiously said " both at the same time? " We were one of 3 tables so he had all the time in the world to try and interact with us.Our meals were OK, I had kingklip with artichokes served on a saffron veloute.The tinned artichokes were placed on top of the kingklip with no infusion of flavour. Generally a bland meal. The vegetable roulade was described as, not fresh.The thai mussel starter was good and the lambs kidneys with gnocci was delicious.There was no management on the floor to communicate with,the ambiance quite dull.with so much competition in the area, I would not return.

We like the unpretentious setting, atmosphere and decor of Henri's. Plus the fact that the food is consistently good, so it's never a difficult choice when we decide on the spur of the moment to go out instead of eating in. Henri's is a mainstay in the town, and his solid reputation is well-earned. Thank you for making a effort to give us such a great review. Hope to see you soon.

No matter how infrequently you visit, you will always be greeted like a regular.

Reviewed By 323melanief

Having not eaten at Giovanni's for a number of years, we decided to go there again tonight. I must be honest, it was average. I had the kingklip with rice and a side of veg (butternut, beetroot and green beans). The kingklip was just okay, the rice was VERY al dente and the beetroot had a taste I cannot quite pin-point. I suspect that the idea behind the beetroot may have been sweet and sour, but I cannot be sure. In short, the quality was not what I remembered Giovanni's to offer.My husband had a sirloin. He said it was closer to well done than medium. His general impression was also that the meal was just okay.Our waiter was very friendly and I have no complaints about the service.All in all, I would say that our evening was average. I am not sure, given the options in and around Somerset West, that I will be back.

The setting is beautiful, if you have a young extended the youngsters can explore and play on the grounds, seems pet friendly.

Strongly recommended.We appreciate the review and your description of the added extra's one can experience when dining at the Camphors Restaurant. Unfortunately we are not pet friendly as we have a host of natural fauna that we need to nuture. Kind regardsSharon Hosking
