A nice place for lunch - the service is friendly, food is good, wine (notably the Sauvignon Blanc) is also very enjoyable! A lovely stop en route to wherever you're off to. Recommend sitting outside if weather permits

Rivendell never ceases to please with its beautifully prepared cuisine, it's clean cut ambience and it's lovely location. Another gem of the Overberg not to be missed. Excellent food, good wines, friendly personnel and atmosphere.

We were pleased to see that the Rivendell restaurant had re-opened. When we visited yesterday we found that the new restaurant is now situated in a new building on the estate and not in the tasting room, as before. So everything about this restaurant is...More
