Stunning Clos Malverne never disappoints. This time we just enjoyed the wine tasting that the establishment offers and it was delicious! The ice-creams were a delight! Will always recommend this wonderful place! The service you receive is 5 star!

Took the 4 course pairing menu, my absolute favourite course was the cheese arancini with roasted seeds - couldn’t believe how good it tasted. Other courses were tasty but not quite as good as the starter. Wine portions were generous - definitely a boozy meal...More

We had great fun enjoying the paired 4 course menu. The food was tasty and wines worked well. Muscle starter was too spicy but the rest was good.

This is a must do if visiting Stellenbosch. The food is just excellent and the views amazing. Have been here a couple of times and never disappoints. The four courses with matching wines is a must. Great value for a very high end restaurant.
