The spice route is a beautiful wine farm that offers something for everyone (drinkers and non-drinkers)! There is chocolate tasting (which is amazing), a brewery, as well as glass blowing where you can see it being done. The wine tasting is excellent. When we arrived we were blown away by the panoramic views of Paarl and greeted by an amazing... More

Amaaaaaaaazing views, wonderful beer, wine, food and chocolate tasting. Love booking a long table under the trees at The Grapparia and enjoying a long, lazy day with friends. Kids can run around safely, while parents enjoy a chilled day eating interesting patters and pizzas with good CBC beer or ice cold wine. Have to book and the friendly manager always... More

Lovely day spent visiting this venue. Being able to leisurely spend time in all the units from wine fastening to chocolate tasting was such a great experience. The lunch provided was extremely pleasing and the table service was excellent. The young waiter was so attentive and knowledgeable offering his thoughts and recommendations with regard to the taste of various items... More

Fixed menu Sunday lunches are not generally our thing, as they tend to become quite predictable and bland. The spread at the Spice Route though was really good, with some interesting twists to keep it interesting. Pork belly was really good, and everyone enjoyed the fresh salads and breads. On a lovely day, lunch with friends under the trees is... More

This is such a nice venue providing a great variety of local wines, craft beer and cuisine. The chocolate shop is an added bonus. It is immensely popular with both locals and tourists and hence gets extremely busy over weekends and holidays. We had a reservation at one of the restaurants but never managed to actually get a table due... More

Ate lunch on the Terrace with views towards Table Mountain in the distance. The pizza was good, with a nice thin base. The service was friendly and efficient. Even though there were many cars in the parking area, the whole set up felt quiet. A good place for young children to run around.

Lovely food, wine, service and views. Amazing late lunch which turned into sunset drinks. Great for families, children well cared for with a lovely menu, colouring in and cookie decorating.

Its a very nice location with breath taking views of the Cape. But the breakfast took the wind out of my sails. R99 for not even R10 products on a plate. Pathetic. Burned chutney croissant and eggs with a pork sausage. Every one on our table were very disappointed with this effort at breakfast. At least in a wimpy i... More

Visited on a lovely Saturday, sat outside. It was very busy, but the waiters were friendly and efficient. The pizza and salad was tasty and just the right size. Will visit again. Thank you.

Had a lovely meal here, food good, service also good. For wine tasting it was a much busier farm with lots of people and lots more to do such a chocolate, beer meat tasting etc so so that was great. Stunning setting with breathtaking views. Would I go back, yes!
