Take a seat at the chef's table

Head Chef Drikus invites you, your family and friends to enjoy authentic South African food using fresh, seasonal and indigenous ingredients prepared with a creative twist and cultural influences. 

Geuwels offers inside and outside seating for tasty breakfast choices such as poached duck eggs and roosterkoek. Lunch features South African small plate-choices to share (or not!) with fascinating combinations such as dune spinach, spekboom, bokkom and suurvygie to enhance top quality vegetables, fruit, seafood, meat and venison. 

Signature dishes include organic maize pap chips with aioli and vintage family recipe sweets like Tannie Hetta se appeltert, koesisters and Peppermint Crisp tart.

The newest restaurant on Vergenoegd Löw The Wine Estate outside Stellenbosh, Clara's Barn, offers fine farm-inspired dining.

The menu offers guests the choice of a three-course or five-course tasting menu, both of which begin with “versnaperinge” (titbits) and a bread course.

"The small bites include an ode to the now defunct SA favourite, fish paste. Served in a Lucky Star tin, the paper thin, miniature, crispy toast slice is topped with a generous schmear of the in-house made spread and accompanied by a ring of pickled onion," writes Steve Steinfeld.

"On to the main meal: the difference between the three and five course, is simply the fact that the latter includes all the starters and the suggested main of Chalmar rump and a choice of dessert, while the former includes a choice of starter, main and dessert."
