The Pomegranite restaurant offers good meals and good service. What might put some patrons off, is the resident dog constantly begging at the table. The website mentioned a duck parade being on view and consists of Indian runner ducks marching to the vineyards to forage on snails and insects but the times seem to have been changed so don’t bank on seeing them march.

A beautiful sunny winters day in Cape Town means a lunch outdoors at Vergenoegd Wine Estate. The Pomegranate offers a simple menu and the service by Mike was excellent as always. The tomato tart was superb and the generous portion of kabeljou even better. All washed down with Runner Duck Rose, what could be better.

The setting and 'Duck Parade' is wonderful. Service very average, but the food is awful. Two grape sized potatoes and three strips of grilled veggies accompany your dish. The vegetarian option of a vegetarian pie was watery broth with chick peas with a pastry topping. ,,the setting very pretty.

A long-overdue return trip to Pomegranate!
The wonderful outdoor setting, the dam, the ducks and geese, the architecture all provide a wonderful ambience. The ancient trees provided welcome shelter under the hot midday sun, and add to the feeling of peace and tranquility.
Michael skillfully explained the compact menu, tempting us to try all the dishes! We tried 4 different starters and all were declared excellent. The Charcuterie Plate seemed especially good value!
Mains were also up to the same high standards.
Fresh ingredients, well-prepared and served, efficient service, and a wonderful setting, all added up to a memorable (very long!) lunch!
Thank you Michael!

This has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. In my opinion it's about the best in the Cape Town area. Owner / chef Michael offers a simple menu of game, fish, beef, poultry or vegetarian with each dish varying according to what's best available that day. I'm particularly fond of the poultry, which is usually a crisply cooked duck.

After the food, the next best thing about Pomegranate is the setting -- an extraordinarily peaceful location for outdoor dining under the trees on a working wine farm. It's a place to take your time enjoying a leisurely lunch in the shade.
