For a light lunch and excellent wine, it is worth the visit. You have the option of doing a wine tasting or just ordering a good pizza, whilst sipping on a refreshing glass of wine. The setting is very casual with an awesome view over the vineyards.

Sad to say that Harvest has been closed, such a pitty it was a fantastic restaurant with great food, all food is now being served on the side of the wine tasting room. They only serve small meals like hambugers or fish and chips as mains. The food quality and service was ok but not nearly as good as it... More

Just had a meal at Harvest. How disappointing. We had the beef burger, which was very mediocre and full of chewy fat bits (definitely not 100% beef) and the calamari salad which was awful. It was tiny, so I am actually still hungry. The rocket was extremely bitter and together with the burny peppadews, and bland rubbery calamari, it was... More

I've been here multiple times for events, birthdays and corporate functions. In the summer we always visit Harvest on Friday evenings and play boules and drink wine. I would recommend this in the summer so you can sit outself. It is pricy though.

My spouse and I enjoyed lunch here on a beautiful spring day. We sat outside on the terrace. The food was nicely presented and the portions were generous. I had the fishcakes, whilst tasty the chilli over powered the delicate flavours of the fish. Otherwise a pleasant dining experience.

Firstly upon arrival the staff was nowhere to be found, we waited for someone to assist us but only got snobbish glances when a waiter did appear. When someone came to help us eventually, it was not with much enthusiasm. We ordered steak with vegetables... the steak was over-cooked and the vegetables was undercooked with raw potatoes! We will most... More

Dear Sharpa9006, Thank you for your review and whilst we welcome every review we are a little confused as our Harvest Restaurant is currently closed for annual leave and we don’t serve steak at Taste. Were you perhaps thinking of another restaurant? If not please contact me so that we can discuss this further. Kind regards, Zelda Oelofse-Cornthwaite General Manager More

Lunch with my family. The food was excellent, with the meat tender and well seasoned, and the vegetables lightly cooked to perfection. Nice ambiance. Service was friendly, but, as in most places in South Africa, the staff will take plates away from one place setting while others at the table are still eating that course. Irritating. That is the only... More

Description
Our restaurant, Harvest at Laborie, is the canvas upon which internationally acclaimed chef Matthew Gordon renders his culinary art. The menu is contemporary South African with ingredients sourced locally. Free range and organic Karoo lamb, beef and fresh line fish are regular features on the menu, while herbs and vegetables are harvested from the restaurant's own garden. All of these components are cleverly combined to deliver a supreme dining experience hallmarked by depth of flavour and superb presentation.

The restaurant has amassed a loyal following and is a #KLINK award-winner, having been singled out from the Cape's plethora of wine tourism destinations by popular vote..
