Description: We invite you to join us at the Restaurant Clos Malverne for the ultimate Food and Wine Experience. Our Restaurant offers you an utterly enjoyable intimate and friendly dining experience in unpretentious but beautiful surroundings. It is not surprising that the bulk of our clientele are people who have been here before as well as their friends and colleagues who have recommended it. As you dine, you and your guests will enjoy an unbelievable vista of the softly sweeping vineyards and rolling hills of Devon Valley - so reminiscent of their English counterpart - and the pastel-coloured mountains behind them. It is an incomparable view that will help create a pleasurable and utterly memorable experience. You'll also enjoy fine gourmet dishes prepared by Executive Chef, Nadia Louw-Smith, renowned for her impeccably-prepared and delicately spiced dishes that seduce the palate. She is one of the most experienced chefs in the country and has been voted Chef of the Year for her sublime dishes. It is not surprising then, that Clos Malverne restaurant has become a favourite of gourmands and has received rave reviews from critics and clients, both in South Africa and abroad. Our kitchen closes at 15:00.

We were given a voucher for our birthdays to go for lunch at this restaurant. What a pleasure. The staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was delicious and the wine pairings were excellent. Can highly recommend this restaurant.
It was full on the day we were there so quite loud so if you were hoping for a romantic lunch this is probably not the place. However, the tables in the window have the most amazing outlook and would be worth reserving if possible,
Overall an excellent experience and a place we will visit again.

We went as group of 12 people. 3 Options catering for everyone taste in the set 4 course wine pairing menu. A nice touch was the glass of bubbly upon arival.

All the dishes were beautifully presented and very tasty indeed. Wines were lovely and the prices well below what some other establishments ask for lesser quality wines. I found the service to be very attentive and proffesional.

Great setting with stunning views complimented the decor of the restaurant.

Note - also a Spa on the farm

It is a while since we visited this restaurant. It was good to see that the food and wine pairing offer is still bringing in the diners. The price has gone up over the years, but so have prices everywhere and this is still excellent value for money. The food, wine, service -- and of course the wonderful view -- are as good as ever.
Book early to benefit from a front row table with the best views.

Lovely setting of Simonsberg and Stellenbosch mountain. We had the food and wine pairing at very reasonable prices. Brendon was a fantastic waiter and we felt welcome and relaxed. A must for a lunch on a lovely day! We will be back!

I recently visited for a four course food and wine pairing and I can honestly say that it was the best dining experience ever. The food was excellent and it's clear that they go the extra mile to make their meals special. The wine really complimented the food (even I could pick that up) and the staff are so very friendly and welcoming. Definitely value for money.
