Went there for a friend's birthday lunch. We all opted for the Food & Wine pairing menu. Service was excellent! Food was superb! Atmosphere was perfect! Wine was world-class. I can absolutely say - Clos Malverne is certainly one of my favourites. After many bottles of wine and conversation, we only left the table just before sunset:)

I had made a booking for lunch a few weeks before my wife's birthday and I asked for a really nice table with a view. We got just that. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the view over the vineyards with their autumn colours, was superb. The food was sublime (although on the expensive side), cooked to perfection and... More

We went there for Mothersday. They have a set menu on days like these. Delicious food paired with perfect wine. One of the most beautiful settings in Stellenbosch as well. What I appreciated the most-is that they took their time serving the five course meal. Making it an opportunity to spend time with the family without feeling rushed.

This is a 'feel good' restaurant with a great view of the surrounding landscape. The food is quite nice, and thankfully the menu limited. We did order the tasting menu with the suggested wines. It was one of the few times we felt that the wines did not accentuate the food, but actually took away from it. All the wines... More

It is very easy to see why this restaurant does so well on Tripadvisor. The location of the restaurant is fantastic with wonderful views through the main window over the estate and onto the mountains beyond (see picture). The food was very good (maybe not quite as flamboyant as some of the other restaurants in the area but when you... More
