La Vierge really never dissapoint! I have been here quite a few times, and the food is just always stunning! Service was great and the view is just to die for. If you do not fancy lunch, a glass of wine of the deck overlooking Hermanus is just as amazing!

We had a fabulous lunch here. It was made hugely special by the waitress who was just amazing but unfortunately I cannot remember her name. She was super friendly and just made the whole experience amazing. Our food was lovely, not excellent. The setting is nice.

We decided to take my Dad here for Lunch for his B Day. Upon arriving you are struck by a beautiful valley view. Really something to see. The restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere, you can sit and drink wine and eat cheese players outside while playing bocce. The food is average. I was shocked at the prices R200 for... More

I was confused by the "Champagne Verandah" they advertised, as they don't make an MCC, and the verandah is used for tastings. I read all the bad reviews on Tripadvisor, and really shouldn't have gone to La Vierge, but as Newton Johnson was closed, I decided to give it a go. My Spaghetti Putanesca was a greasy splodge of cherry... More

We have not received the warmest of welcome greetings. The facilities were understaffed and the restaurant was closed. On leaving, the aromas from the kitchen smelled inviting and promising.

Tasty lunch with a great view of the wine valley down to the coast. Large portions so we were stuffed leaving. Food was very tasty. Short drive to Hermanus, worth a visit if in the area.

Very good lunch although with a big group. We started with a little wine tasting and all wines had seductive names. Lovely view from the washrooms.

The most beautiful setting overlooking the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and their Estate wine is one of our favourites. Spent a lovely family lunch on a beautiful autumn day. Food excellent, service attentive and atmosphere unique. There’s always a happy crowd there, as it was not our first visit.

I have been there three times, once with overseas tourists from Holland/France, and once with my cousin and her daughter and a third time with my daughter and her partner from Johannesburg. The first visit included wine tasking, buying wine and lunch, and the second visit was only for wine tasting and buying the wines. All three were pleasant experiences... More

Our arrival, the 'greeting' of 'WINE TASTING OR RESTAURANT' reminded one of Airline 'Chicken or Beef ' , on being seated we were advised that a bottle of wine must be ordered from the other section as only a glass of wine could be ordered at the table. So off we went to 'Wine Tasting' the person assisting us there... More

La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.
