Pappa Grappa has to be the best family restaurant we visited this year! The food was amazing, the service personalised and the setting outstanding. We decided to have a few GnT's before our meal as they also produce their own Wilderer Gin, which was garnished with mint and were outstanding. The price of their meals were extremely reasonable and their... More

On rare occasions our travels let us find us hidden gems of the hospitality industry, be it guest houses, bars or restaurants. During our most recent tour off the beaten tracks across the Cape Winelands we stumbled upon such gem in an area called “Simondium”, about 15km from Paarl on the R45. Family-owned Wilderer Distillery and the Restaurant “Pappa Grappa”... More

We were a group of 8 people and had a wonderful lunch under the trees. Pizza is incredibly good, but the G&T's are even better! Choose between different tonic waters and start sensitising your taste buds to appreciate tonic water. Never again will I use Schweppes!

Lovely setting in the garden, and you can also do some tasting of their gin and other liquors. We ordered Pizza, of which the tomato base was just amazing, obviously... More

Great Italian food in a low key environment. Perhaps a bit too much garden style and too little AC to get that extra star. And after lunch/dinner, you can go into the distillery and sample gin and other liquors distilled here.

We had lunch on a hot summer day in the lovely and shady garden of Pappa Grappa. The food, especially the pizzas are great and delicious and there's a good variety of types. But the best part is the kids friendly staff and the playground that is directly in view of the tables, allowing a relaxing time for the parents... More
