Simply the most wonderful food and of course, outstanding wines. Being restaurant owners, we have an appreciation of the skill, thought and just downright honest hard work that goes into providing an experience of the level your team delivered yesterday - faultless, really. The food was so beautifully created and so well seasoned, perfect, which is extremely rare to find - we have tried, believe you me, and are usually disappointed! The service from Pamela and the front of house staff was impeccable. Hats off Carolyn, really, hats off to you all!

Six of us visited Creation Winery on a gorgeous sunny Autumn day which merely added to the beauty of the surroundings in the Hemel & Aarde valley. The drive from Hermanus takes at least 20 minutes so make sure you leave plenty of time to get to the winery (a pretty drive in itself) as there are some roadworks along the way at the moment. Reservations are a must - ask for a table by the window, or even better, one on the patio under the umbrellas if it's not too warm. There's a wine & food pairing which has to be booked ahead of time (at least 24 hours), or you can order off the menu. We had an exceptional waitress who pretty much made our meal the delight it was. She recommended the starter tasting menu which paired a different wine with a small taster of the most delicious food of Masterchef quality. Afterwards we each had an entree off the main menu. A gastronomic delight! The Creation wines are superb too, so it was very sad to leave this spot after many hours of enjoyment. We will be back!

Visiting Creation for the wines alone is an experience, however their excellent wines paired with beautiful food makes it a worthy trip. The staff were exceedingly friendly, and the Riedel glassware for the wines made for a top notch wine tasting experience.
