Traveling through the Robertson Wine Valley, we stopped at Van Loveren for lunch. The vibe is so nice and fresh. The food was amazing!! One unfortunate thing was that management scolded staff in front of guests.

Log fire burning with comfortable couches and the best ever pizza with thin base ever. Wheelchair friendly and I could enjoy lunch with my little Toy Pom sitting on my lap. Lovely atmosphere and friendly people. Christine came to say hello.

Popped in for a quick lunch en route back home from Plett. Your pizzas are fantastic, with wafer-thin bases. I ordered the rustic ratatoulle and my son made up his own with anchovis and bacon (and he is a fussy eater). My wife had a...More

We were all very happy with our various meals we ordered! We had a hake and chips, Caesar salad, quinoa salad and a gourmet burger (which my son says was one of the best burgers he's eaten). The service was friendly and quick, the food,...More

Although the food was lovely, the venue was dark and very 'foresty'. There is no place for children to play. I think it is more of a summer venue as it would be lovely under the trees outside when hot. But the food was yummy...More

The place to lunch in the Robertson Valley if you love Thin-crust wood-fired gourmet pizzas, award winning burgers, great food made to order from fresh local seasonal produce. Located within the lush gardens of the Van Loveren Estate, child and pet friendly seating under the vine-covered pergola, or inside the old Manor House with french doors opening up into the gardens. Also open on Sundays when local musicians set the tone for a laid back afternoon!
