Having read many wonderful reviews about Bellgables I booked for a Sunday lunch.
What a delightful and decadent venue in the countryside.
We were welcomed by extremely friendly staff and seated at our opulently decorated table. Immediately we were offered refreshments and this set the tone for a most enjoyable lunch. The decorating is eclectic and fascinating, with each table filled with a selection of charactures and ornaments.
Our table was next to the french doors overlooking the pool and what a surprise to see a few Zebra and Giraffe only about 50m away! An unexpected treat.
Delicious choices for a satisfying 3 course meal were offered in the menu. An extensive wine list is also offered. We shared a beef carpaccio to share and mains were fillet medallions and roasted duck. Excellent choices, beautifully presented and generous portions. Chocolate mousse ended off the lunch as a highveld storm swept across the hills, much to the elation of the Zebra!
Pricing is above average, but is worth every cent!! This is truly a wonderful venue and a mere 35km from Sandton.
For an intimate couple's meal or a family gathering, you will not be disappointed!
