Recommended to us by our hotel who said that the restaurant had been taken over by the people from B's in Hermanus. Our waitress was lovely and helped us choose wines by providing samples of several. My wife and I both had the Bobotie - beef for me and lentil for her - and they were both divine. I enjoy... More

I visited La Vierge for dinner and for lunch. On both occasions we were served outstanding food. The service was impeccable and the wine, our favorite was "The Affair" Pinot Noir. The venue itself is very upmarket with a lovely deck overlooking the vineyards and Hemel en Aarde Valley. It is so relaxing sitting out on the deck with a... More

Ten of us ate here on Sunday, we were lucky to have the VIP room (better that way so we didn't disturb other diners) , the views from there are stunning over the wonderful Hemel en Aarde valley. We found the staff very efficient and organised, after our wine tasting, 20 rand for 6 tastings, we went through to our... More

We were sat by the window with a stunning sweeping view across vineyards and mountain ranges with the sun slowly sinking - amazing! We had been recommended to go here and have a steak cooked by Bruce - would have been rude not to! I had the sirloin and my husband had the fillet - both 300g. I was a... More

I excitedly walked into this beautiful venue,looking forward to my first proper 'Wine Tasting' experience... only to be told by the not so friendly lady behind the bar that they're extremly busy and have no clean glasses available. She then shoved us onto a waitress to assist us with ordering some 'bubbles' and advised us that we can have a... More

Our party of 6 all had steaks so cannot comment on other offerings on the menu. But the steaks were excellently prepared and all cooked to perfection which together with good service, good starters and good estate wines all made for a very pleasant luncheon. The views from the restaurant too are outstanding.

What a wonderful lunch... we stopped here for a wine tasting and also had booked for lunch. We took a bit longer than expected for the wine tasting- the wines are fantastic. The views however are out of this world!! You can see all the way to the sea through the valley and play bowls on the Veranda. It's a... More

The venue was absolutely great - stunning view. However, the service & attitude of staff was very much to be desired. We were only able to reserve a table for 4 instead of 8. We did ask if they could accommodate the rest of us but were told emphatically that they couldn't as they were fully booked. (when we arrived,... More

La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.
