The location is very central and ample safe parking is close to the front door.The friendly waitpersons met us at the door and showed the way to the terrace outside and had some sun-downers and a cheese platter from the dessert menu for a early starter, very delicious. The rest of the starters were master chef style but the snoek... More

From the servers, to Head Chef Lindes De Jager, to the ambiance, and to the food - nothing but nothing disappointed us about this Hemmingways Restaurant & Wine Cellar. We visited on a gorgeous sunny noon hour to have lunch and were seated outside at a lovely table. It was a Friday and my wife and I were both surprised... More

The food at Hemingways is sublime. The best we had in South Africa. The service is very good but take notice that it is quite a fancy restaurant and you should dress a bit up to it. We (backpacking couple) felt a little underdressed and had to sit outside because my boyfriend wore shorts. Ofcourse when we saw the restaurant... More

The food and service was great, we were celebrating our engagement. It was a cold winter evening and the fireplace was being stocked regularly. So regularly and so badly that we left asap without having dessert coffees because our eyes burnt that badly. Our hair and clothes smelled as if we went for a braai at Loftus...

We had our first date night in months and decided to try out Hemingways. What an unbelievable evening! The atmosphere, location and food was incredible! Our waitron was brilliant and added much to the success and enjoyment of our evening! I would recommend this to anyone wanting a special experience and enjoy beautiful food! The wine selection was hugely comprehensive.

Went there for supper on the spur of the moment. Service was outstanding as the food was. The rack of lamb is out of this world while the pork belly is absolutely delicious. Hemingway's has an extensive wine selection and is well priced. Will definitely be visiting this establishment again.

The food was average and a bit expensive. Many white wines on the list were not available but this was due to a large event earlier in the day. The restaurant is warm and inviting inside and the service is good. There are private dinning rooms for small groups that offer good privacy.
