We did the food and wine pairing with friends over lunch. The service was brilliant, food delicious and the wine out of this world. Absolute value for money and highly recommended.

This was our first visit, but certainly won't be our last. We did the four course tasting with wine pairing and it was great. Really good value, fresh food, good choice to satisfy all tastes and with an incredible backdrop. When we arrived, we were taken to our table and were lucky to have an outside table, it was stunning... More

Booking from the uk was easy and we had the balcony seat we requested with the beautiful view. We had the tasting menu with wine including a glass of sparkly to start with. Excellent value and service. A Sunday lunch to remember.

We have been taking family and friends visiting Cape Town to this wine estate for lunch for 4 years now and again yesterday. It is always great value and excellent quality. We've tried many different wine estates but this all inclusive 4 course lunch with generous wine pairing is THE BEST by far.

We loved our lunch at Clos Malverne. Everything on the plate was delicious and filling. The view was gorgeous and the atmosphere very pleasant. We loved our meal. What we also liked here is that one is not obliged to eat a set Menu and can order just one main dish. I would suggest to come early before the crowds... More

We had a wonderful lunch in this establishment. We arrived early having expecting to do some wine tasting. However, the staff suggested we had lunch first then carry on with the wine tasting. We had four amazing courses with the wonderful wine pairing, although one wine matching wasn't quite to our taste. The staff were unobtrusive and just arrived when... More

This is the perfect place for a lunch. Wine-food pairing is offered at reasonable prices. The view from the restaurant is magnificent. The food is a real treat, you can select from a menu or eat a la carte. We have chosen the 4-course meal with wines matching the food. The knowledge of the staff about the wines was perfect....

We've been away for 3+ years, but were eager to go back to Clos Malverne for one of their amazing meals - it was always one of our favourite places. We joined friends for a Gourmet Evenings (R498/person) and it was expensive! But, the food and service were fabulous, as we remembered. The gourmet evening consisted of 5 courses, each... More

Stopped at Clos Malverne for lunch. Three of us had the menu matched with wine while the others had a la carte. The table was on the balcony with a view across the vineyard to a crag in the distance. Another amazing vista. The appellation menu consists of four courses with matched wine. They did allow the odd change but... More

The wine paring lunch menu is an awesome experience. The wine portions are generous and you get a good taste of what their wines taste like. The food is made with excellent ingredients and wonderfully displayed. The portions are generous and the service & staff are wonderfull. The view compliments the good wine & cuisine perfectly.
