While the setting is beautiful and the wine delicious, the lunch at the La Motte farm shop was disappointing. We had a focaccia with roasted veg. The portion was tiny, and we left very hungry.

I have been visiting this estate for the last 12 years every time I visit South Africa which is about four times.

What a nice place!! Everything looks perfect, nice staff, good wines and breath taking environment! Good wines, 7 wines, 50 rand pp. Not the cheapest but the one of the best. Unfortunately not been in the restaurant.. Worth visiting

I love the fact that the owners have kept the traditional look and feel of the wine farm yet been clever enough to modernize the necessary without being overpowering. Frightfully expensive

The whole wine yard is very stylish and everything is very well maintained - sometimes unbelievable that there is also wine produced on the area... Having... More

I visited the La Motte Museum and was well received by a very knowledgeable and friendly curator. I thoroughly enjoyed the Pierneef exhibition.

The food here is some of the best we had in South Africa. Presentation was superb with flavours to match - they obviously have a very clever, innovative chef. We had lunch on a cold winter's day and the open fire near our table made for a lovely, cosy atmosphere in the tastefully decorated room. Food, wines and service were... More
