Had been looking forward to our visit here for quite some time, but was slightly disappointed. The views are to die for, even from the bathrooms!!! However, the food doesn't live up to it. Outstanding starters, from the ' One and only onion' to the...More

We stopped here for lunch after Creation wines tasting. The deck is quite amazing with a really nice view over the valley. The food was a good, but not great. The restaurant has a family-run vibe about it which I liked as it kind of...More

Had a very good meal here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service may have been a little slow but that did not detract from an enjoyable night. In particular the wines were excellent. Very much worth a visit.

Our Hermanus friends were recommended to La Vierge, because the place of first choice turned out to be unavailable. The restaurant itself seems pleasant enough, but that's about it. The male waiter had a very gruff manner, something that is very rare in my experience...More

We spent the morning on the Hermanus Wine Hopper, which is a lovely way of getting from wine farm to wine farm. We decided on lunch at La Vierge (which we had booked in advance). Our waiter looked rushed off his feet (and made comments...More

We booked here because of the view to take some overseas guests and were very disappointed. Poor variety of food and many standard dishes were not available. When food was served some of it was inedible, such as their calamari. My steak was fine but...More

What I witnessed in this tasting room was disgusting, a male waiter shouted and broke down a female staff member, clearly about some table this lovely waitress had seated. She was such a lovely waitress and to see her bullied was horrific. SORT THIS OUT

We had a steak lunch at LaVierge and the chef, Bruce, really knows his stuff. I'm not a fan of blue cheese but nearly licked the blue cheese and fig sauce off my plate! Definitely recommended for a family lunch of with friends

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.
