I've been here multiple times for events, birthdays and corporate functions. In the summer we always visit Harvest on Friday evenings and play boules and drink wine. I would recommend this in the summer so you can sit outself. It is pricy though.

My spouse and I enjoyed lunch here on a beautiful spring day. We sat outside on the terrace. The food was nicely presented and the portions were generous. I had the fishcakes, whilst tasty the chilli over powered the delicate flavours of the fish. Otherwise a pleasant dining experience.

Firstly upon arrival the staff was nowhere to be found, we waited for someone to assist us but only got snobbish glances when a waiter did appear. When someone came to help us eventually, it was not with much enthusiasm. We ordered steak with vegetables... the steak was over-cooked and the vegetables was undercooked with raw potatoes! We will most... More

Dear Sharpa9006, Thank you for your review and whilst we welcome every review we are a little confused as our Harvest Restaurant is currently closed for annual leave and we don’t serve steak at Taste. Were you perhaps thinking of another restaurant? If not please contact me so that we can discuss this further. Kind regards, Zelda Oelofse-Cornthwaite General Manager More

Dear Marissa, Thank you for your response. We apologise for your experience at our tasting room that was a let down on one of our busy trading days. The gentlemen that assisted you at first should have rather just informed you that our macarons were sold out as one macaron crumbled and obviously left one tasting short. For that we... More

Lunch with my family. The food was excellent, with the meat tender and well seasoned, and the vegetables lightly cooked to perfection. Nice ambiance. Service was friendly, but, as in most places in South Africa, the staff will take plates away from one place setting while others at the table are still eating that course. Irritating. That is the only... More

We enjoyed the variety offered on the menu, the wine, the setting, the view, the indoor and outdoor option, the view over the wineries, the good and save parking. A restaurant to consider for every occasion with friends, family and couples.

From the view, to the service and of course the outstanding food, this is a firm favourite with friends or children. Get a beautiful table outside overlooking the lawns and vineyards in summer (probably book ahead too!).

Our restaurant, Harvest at Laborie, is the canvas upon which internationally acclaimed chef Matthew Gordon renders his culinary art. The menu is contemporary South African with ingredients sourced locally. Free range and organic Karoo lamb, beef and fresh line fish are regular features on the menu, while herbs and vegetables are harvested from the restaurant's own garden. All of these components are cleverly combined to deliver a supreme dining experience hallmarked by depth of flavour and superb presentation.
