We thought we were going to eat lunch in a smallish restaurant in vineyard surroundings. But this is a very large and busy restaurant which, to us, felt like a place popular with large tour groups. The food was good and the wine nice.

We took a guest for lunch and I was secretly hoping they still had Patagonia calamari on their menu. They did and I fell in love all over again. Both my husband and I ordered it: perfectly seasoned and grilled tubes served in a delicious cream sauce. Sauce is not overly heavy or full of maizena and the calamari is... More

We book a tasting of wine at Van Loveren and Lunch at Christina's what a perfect combination. The food was delicious and served promptly. We had a wide variety of starters and mains all of which were cooked to perfection and presented well. We had Christina's Sauvignon Blanc which was excellent. Great atmosphere, wonderful food, service with a smile and... More

We ate here a couple of years ago on the recommendation of our daughter and were fortunate enough to be able to visit again. Still a wonderful selection on the menu; a wide range of choices but I remembered that their pizzas are particularly good. This one did not disappoint. My husband had the crumbed brie starter which was so... More

Went on a Saturday when it was very busy. But service was good and fast. Salads are huge and making up a main meal. Burgers are served with jummy potato wedges. There are changing meals of the day on top of the menu. Outside garden setting is beautiful and fine water spray helps to stay cool on a hot summer... More

Good food and staff makes for great experience. Loved the Berry milkshake with fresh berries no syrups. Extensive menu with dark chocolate gateau desserts to die for. Great atmosphere. Pizza a natural choice. Garden settings and happy ambience. Good idea to book in advance for both the Winetasting and/or Restuarant. Great Value!!

After a tasting of their excellent wines and a walk around the lovely gardens we had Sunday lunch. The service was excellent (even though the restaurant was full). The food equally good.

As part of our reunion trip we landed up having lunch here. Staff were accommodating and arranged a large table for us. Service was great. Everyone of us could not fault the meal. Even the fussy "adult kids" licked the plates clean. They served the best fish dishes over our holiday. After our meal we went for a stroll in... More

We stopped by spontaneously for lunch. The salads were fantastic, as were the veggie and Mexican burger. The staff was very attentive. We sat outside in the shade. Only the constant humming of ACs was a bit bothersome.

The place to lunch in the Robertson Valley if you love Thin-crust wood-fired gourmet pizzas, award winning burgers, great food made to order from fresh local seasonal produce. Located within the lush gardens of the Van Loveren Estate, child and pet friendly seating under the vine-covered pergola, or inside the old Manor House with french doors opening up into the gardens. Also open on Sundays when local musicians set the tone for a laid back afternoon!
