Dining

Mont Rochelle's fine-dining restaurant, Mange Tout, is the perfect place to round off a day in the stunning Cape Winelands. This elegant restaurant offers world-class cuisine, great wines produced on the farm itself, and mesmerising vineyard views to accompany your meal. For a more relaxed, Mediterranean approach to dining, The Country Kitchen offers outdoor dining areas overlooking vineyards - a great venue to enjoy a glass of the cellar's own fine wine.

The Country Kitchen will also pack you a delicious picnic basket that you can take with you to enjoy at a pretty spot on the estate - under the trees, next to the dam or in the fragrant rose garden. End your day with pre-dinner drinks and canapés at the Bar. The Bar also serves light meals until 6pm as well as hot chocolate and biscuits in front of the roaring fire in winter.
