Description: The restaurant overlooks the table-top-flat polo field, with magnificent wraparound views. The Polo Club wears many hats. It is, firstly, the 'local', where residents meet over coffee, grab a light lunch or meet for an after-work drink. At night, it's used by families with young children, or by empty-nesters with sophisticated tastes. Over weekends, the week day breakfast gives way to an interesting brunch menu. As if this isn't enough, the Polo Club team is also responsible for the weddings and other large events that are held on site. We love working with the Val de Vie Events team - they are superbly organised and bring fabulous energy to all they do! Mindful of all the different ways in which residents use the restaurant, we've done our best to put together a restaurant menu that satisfies these many requirements. We think we've managed to cover all bases from the 'quick-bite-at-lunchtime' to sophisticated dinner dishes to enjoy with a great bottle of wine. We offer the full range of Val de Vie wines, with its Rhône-inspired blends. These are complemented with a small selection of other producers' wines.

Our first (and last) visit to the Polo Club restaurant for dinner. Probably ok for a young family, but kids running around everywhere. We were shown to our table and then ignored for 10 minutes, no menu, no drinks, nothing. So we walked out, and went instead to Terre Mare which was up to its usual excellence.

We visited Val de Vie Polo Estate and the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Unbelieveble views with lush Polo Field and the food was tasty, plenty and well served. Will definetly recommend it to all the "Out of Towners" and Visitors - it is not every day that you get good food, good service and a Polo Match all in one.

What a stunning location for a restaurant, overlooking the Polo field (games apparently on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays ) and the mountains, what a view. The food was excellent and so was the service and the menu so diverse everybody found something they like. Will see me again next time in Paarl
