This well-established, privately owned boutique wine farm keeps the menu simple with carefully chosen tapas to complement its award-winning wines.

Food
The menu consists of a lengthy and alluring list of mezze options showcasing South African produce beautifully. Freshly baked plaited bread served with a fresh salad is the perfect start to an alfresco lunch. Think pear, nuts and blue cheese or citrus, baby spinach and toasted walnut drizzled with olive oil and balsamic reduction. Various dips, pâtés and marinated olives are followed by meat dishes like springbok carpaccio, bobotie cigars, creamy mussels and a seasonal soup of the day. End on a sweet note with cheese and preserves, refreshing lemon and pineapple sorbets, or decadent chocolate truffles on display.

Drinks
Wine is well-priced and sold either at the tasting room or at the entrance of the restaurant. Bramon sauvignon blanc and rosé are the prefect accompaniment to the menu options, or start your meal with a chilled glass of bubbly.

Service
The service is relaxed and casual, with well trained, friendly staff.

Ambience
Vibey and bustling in the summer months, for a quieter, more private option, reserve a table between the vines.

Best for larger groups or family celebrations at the large tables on the patio. Otherwise enjoy the intimacy of a meal between the vineyards sheltered by umbrellas, perfect for a romantic lunch for two.

    Shocking service!! Food took ages. Left with dirty dishes on our table for well over 20 mins of finishing our meal. Had to ask for service twice during lunch. Otherwise a pleasant lunch
    Bramon Wine Estate Tucked away in a mountainous area called The Crags just a short 20km East of Plettenberg Bay lies this hidden gem. Just off the old and beautifully tree lined N2 you pull directly into the Tasting Rooms of Bramon Wines. Small and boutique-esque you feel the excitement of a new adventure immediately. We are greeted by a very helpful man who informs us that this area is great for white wines and bubbly. Zipping through the whites I am waiting in anticipation for the Bubbly or Methode Cap Classique. The crisp, cold bubbles hit my lips and instantly I am in love with this place. We hop back into our car for a short drive into the vineyards to the restaurant. The restaurant is a chic black and white style house. Very comfortable with a lot of tables which I am sure are packed in the summer months. We are led through the open doors to the outside area where we were seated at a table directly in the vineyards. Yes, I said it, in the vineyards. We dined with the grapes. The menu is a tapas lover’s dream come true. Everything from fresh salads like Strawberry and Biltong to Bobotie Cigars. The array is enough to get my mouth watering. We settle on the small freshly baked bread (R30), Spinach and Feta Cigars (R40), Snoek Pate (R35), Springbok Carpaccio (R55), Sticky Chicken Wings (R35), Spanish Meatballs (R50), and the Camembert Fig & Nut (R65). I think at this point it is only fair to tell you that we were two people. And no, we didn’t over-do it at all (insert sarcasm here). The portions are huge for the prices. We had small tapas in mind, but when the staff rounded the corner we soon realised that maybe, just maybe we went a bit overboard. I still don’t regret our decision, however. The Carpaccio was so soft it basic melted in my mouth. The sticky chicken wings were covered in a sweet and tangy sauce that left me covered in it, but I didn’t mind. The Spinach and Feta Cigars were a bit dry so I could have done without these, but after all of the other goodies I felt some greens were necessary. And my absolute favourite, the thing I would drive 6 hours from Cape Town for again was the Camembert Fig & Nut. Heaven. Pure buttery, nutty, smooth, heaven. Words do not give this justice. You have to try it for yourself. And when you do…you are more than welcome to send me something for my recommendation. The Camembert Fig & Nut would be ideal. With all of this splendid food we also managed to fit in a bottle of their MCC Brut Sauvignon Blanc which, of course, helped wash it all down. Bramon Wine Estate has won my heart and my stomach. It was such a stunning experience to eat among the vineyards, but to also adore the food as well was such a treat. I will be back, Bramon. Six hours drive or not. I am coming!
    I visit Plett three times a year and then sometimes drive to the Western Cape from East London. I NEVER bypass Bramon. The trip simply would not be the same. Dennis Collins.

    We really love Bramon and go there each time we're in Plett, but this time the experience was totally let down by indifferent service and high prices. Perhaps Bramon have done too well and become both slack and greedy. Such a shame, because it's always been such a treat, and the summer tapas menu remains good.

    If your style is relaxed, leisurely, informal, meze type food accompanied by excellent wine then this is the lunch venue for you! What a little gem up the Garden Route! Bramon is the only wine estate in Plettenberg Bay! They have pioneered vineyards this far east of the Western Cape. The Inside dining area is lovely but on a hot day it's great to book a table inside the vines, yes, I said inside the vines! Tables are placed at the start of each row of vines, so you are surrounded by vineyards, blue skies and the Tsitsikamma mountains. The food is simple, think olives, humus, cheese, dolmades, salads..... washed down with Bramon's delicious sauv blanc! Do order the plated rosemary salted bread. Such an amazing day out. Great to stop at the wine sales on the drive out and stock up! The Sauvignon Blanc Methode Cap Classique is amazing. They also have a range of wines, Vukani, which empowers the local community.
