One of the best restaurants paired with excellent wines I discovered so far in this region. Food and wine - there - a match made in heaven. Go and enjoy!

We did the 8 course tapas wine pairing menu for lunch, which was an incredible experience. The food was interesting and went well (as expected) with the wines. I recommend you book, which thankfully we had, as it was very busy at 1pm on. Monday. Service was great, staff friendly and fresh tasting food. I would certainly recommend this for... More

Definitely the best wine pairing lunch in South Africa. Outstanding experience with beautifully paired wines that match the finely balanced taste buds. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed lunch at Creation Winefarm which included some wine tasting, the food we combined with delicious white and red wines. Flavour combinations were explained by very gentle staff. Winefarm is in the gorgeous Hemel and Aarde valley which is probably one of the most beautiful in the world!

Went to Creation as the last stop we did on the Hemel en Aarde valley wine tour. Had the tasting menu - 8 courses each paired with wine. None of the courses were too big - so didn't feel too full at the end! The wine pairings were amazing and ended up shipping lots of the wine home. The food... More

Now we know why everyone wants to go to Creation vinyard when doing the wine tasting tour. If you have time to visit one vinyard around Hermanus, visit Creation. It is very picturesque there. We sat outside at one point because the restaurant was very busy. Drank Shiraz and a lovely Rose and ate a cheese platter. The wine was... More

Our last visit to Creation was a total disappointment. We had to wait 90m minutes for our Gemsbok. No warning, no apologies, just a glass of their delcious flagship red after our lunch. The meat was not as tender as it should be, the vegetables and mushroom puree not very exciting, but the wines we tasted excellent. We never had... More

Dear Peter We apologize for this experience and need to find out which day you visited and who served you as we cannot find your details in the reservation book and think it might be under another name or want to know if you just popped in.

Coincidentally, the winery is located in the valley called Hermel en Aarde, which means "heaven on earth". This is a relatively young wine estate, I believe 9 years old. The terrain has produced wonderful grapes, leading to exquisite wines. I was hooked from the very first try, about three years ago.. I recommend that you run there... I understand there... More

Being in the hospitality industry and all I know what service should be like and clearly creation doesn't. We arrived for a tasting (and hoped for something to eat) just before 16h00 on Monday and was informed their kitchen is closed but that we can do a wine tasting as they only close at 5 and we were perfectly happy...
