The wine tasting was great with a nice variety of wines. We only did the tasting, not the pairing so I can't speak to the food. The view from the tasting room is fantastic. A nice stop if you enjoy wine.

Close enough to Cape Town for an afternoon lunch. Do yourself a favour and sample the cuisine. If you're a fan of cheese soufflés give theirs a try. In my book one of the best I've tasted. Great views, wines and awesome staff. I'd travel a lot further to eat this cuisine regularly. I'd rated it well above some of... More

Nice launch Wine tasting needs to be improved with extra elements between wines. Serving 5 wines straight after each other with no breakers makes it less pleasant to non connoisseurs. Expect a little more

The views and food were out of this world - worth the trip for the views alone. Wine was tasty - ask for a table outside and thank me later

We have enjoyed lunch here on a number of occasions when visiting the area from the UK. A table on the veranda with stunning views coupled with fabulous food wine and service. Just wonderful.

Having booked months ago, the maitre'd was adamant that there was no booking. On threatening to show her the e-mail confirmation, she suddenly found it. Food at best was ok, my wife's lamb having to be returned to the kitchen as it was stone cold when served. Service erratic and uncaring. In short, give this place a miss as there... More

With one of the most beautiful views in the Boland, and delicious foods, Glen Carlou is a must visit for tourists and locals. Their in restaurant wines are some of the best and most affordable one will find at an estate. Lamb Neck and Cabernet highly recommended.
