We had an amazing time at Creation Wines, our waitress,
Pamela was lovely, very friendly and she had a good knowledge about wines.
We had the pairing food and wine as starter, cauliflower soup with Gorgonzola was my favorite,
For main course I had pork belly and my friend had springbok, both very tasty and well presented.
Beautiful setting, shame it was a rainy day, otherwise we could had lunch outside on the vineyards.
If you're around Hermanus it's a must, even the bad road to get there!

I went here with friends during a recent trip to the Cape Winelands and what a wonderful experience. From the warm, friendly welcome to the amazing seat by the window and then the food and the wine! We loved every moment here and can't wait to go back.

We had the full wine pairing and also enjoyed a wonderful lunch afterwards.

They also cater for kids with a special pairing the young ones would enjoy and also have a tea & chocolate pairing which I didn't try, but I like that they have this option for those non wine drinkers among us.

It was a cold, rainy day and the fireplace in the middle of the room made for a wonderful, warm atmosphere. The service was excellent and the staff are all very knowledgeable on the wines.

We were lucky enough to enjoy both the wine and canape pairing as well as the wine and chocolate pairing. Both pairings were incredible and the knowledgeable staff really added to the experience. The Hemel en Aarde valley is breathtaking and I would recommend that everyone makes an effort to enjoy this wine farm.

The gastronomic highlight of our stay. Kyle's food and wine knowledge was extremely strong. The chef even took time to come out and speak with us. The food and wine pairing were fantastic. The atmosphere was relaxed. If you are in the cape you simply must visit this place. We can't wait to come back. Thanks you.

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!
