There are three restaurants, wine tasting, cured meats, chocolate and craft beer as well as Red Hot Glass and other curio shops all on site. Well maintained, well kep, beautiful setting and fairly well sign posted between attractions. We ate breakfast at the Bertus Basson Restaurant, the menu was quite ordinary and the food could have been prepared slightly better,... More

Chocolatery, coffee roasters, ice cream, burgers, pizza and more. Great stop for all and large grounds offer the opportunity to stretch your legs or devour your chocolate under a shady tree. The road leading there from the high way is tarred, so no need to worry.

Called off spec here, we loved it. Service was excellent, efficient, warm and friendly. The wine was delicious ( Fairview champagne - try it !!) The pizza was as good as any we've had in Italy.

My second visit to Spice Route and I must say a better experience second time round. The craft beer tasting is a must do and taste experience and certainly not to be missed. A lovely family, couples or friends venue to hang out. Go early to avoid congestion on the road, book your table, wear comfortable shoes, don your sunhat... More

Due to the popularity of the venue it is advisable to book so as to avoid disappointment. The outside benches under the trees are ideal for a summer meal. There is plenty to keep the kids (play park) and adults (gin tasting etc ;-) busy. The Flammkuchen are brilliant!

piano evening went there for their piano evening . how cool! the inside is decorated with antiques and the piano is from the late 1800’s. it was very cosy and a lovely atmosphere. apparently they do this from time to time and other special evenings. the food and service was not to fault. french onion soup,…better than in france!

What an over rated venue. We went there on Sunday afternoon with great expectation of having a beautiful lunch, after hearing about this place as being a fine dining experience. It is exactly the opposite. A disaster. I was told that I do not have to book when I called there four days prior_ seeing that it was for only... More

What a gem! Do you love beer and biltong, no problem! Or what about a pizza or Gin tasting....and for dessert, chocolate tasting!!! The Spice Route got you covered! Enjoyed the lovely food in a setting that takes your breath away. Well worth the travel to The Paarl district.
