Country cooking with a sprinkle of sophistication is the hallmark of Gabriëlskloof, making it well worth the drive. The inventive breakfast menu ensures this is a popular spot for both locals and hungry road-trippers, dishing up anything from hearty fry-ups to healthy quinoa and kale bowls.

The classic order is the Eggs Gabriëlskloof, a sturdy plate of roosterbrood, spiced bobotie mince and poached eggs. Come hungry.
Lunchtime sees more bistro-style cooking on a compact menu that will offer something for most palates. There’s crowd-pleasing pork belly and crispy salt-and-pepper squid, but rather opt for the succulent confit duck, served here with a couscous salad and hummus of carrot and honey, or creative roosterbrood with bone marrow and salsa verde.

If you’re short on time, the deli menu offers a range of simple, well-priced plates, from generous cheese platters to home-made burgers and salads. There’s an extensive kids’ menu too.

The kids will also no doubt plead for a scoop of home-made ice cream – just one of the tempting dessert options. There’s also the quirky peppermint crisp ice cream sandwich, but you certainly won’t go wrong with the silky white chocolate crème brûlée.

Excellent wine list focused on the Gabriëlskloof wines, which are excellent. Most are available by the glass and all at tiny mark-ups.

Country-style service – plenty of warmth without the frills.

It’s a restaurant of two faces. Indoors is more formal, with linen-clad tables and a roaring fire. On the broad stoep, outdoor tables overlook spacious lawns where the kids – and dogs – can stretch their legs.

Best for…
Sunday drives and hearty lunches with the family.

    Love the new Breakfast menu at Gabrielskloof... Their Eggs Benedict are the best there is and now... the delicious Braaibroodjie with ooooozing cheese topped with just the right amount of béchamel sauce and a perfectly poached egg is on the VERY TOP of my best Breakfasts EVER !! Worth a trip from Cape Town ... Never a dull moment as Chef Frans always surprise with a little unexpected twist ! Frans, thanks for always taking our foodie experiences to the next level of surprise and excitement..
    If you're on holiday along the whale coast, Gabrielskloof is a lovely option for a lazy breakfast or lunch. We had breakfast on Valentine's Day, and it was, well, lovely! The banana bread french toast is genius and simply delicious! Three fat slices are drizzled with maple syrup and topped with dollops of creme fraiche and gooseberries. Divine!
    We have frequented Gabrielskloof the wine estate since inception, when this striking contemporary cellar was first opened, and today still enjoy the clean lines and serenity of it all. Thoughtfully the restaurant (and deli) was outsourced originally and retains the same excellent chef and staff, who are welcoming and recognise, the many returning guests who enjoy the delicious South African offerings always with some innovation, and it all just works so well. Our 'pulled' lamb in cabbage, was a large slow-cooked main that we all enjoyed, and other dishes as always were rewarding.Such a great stop en route to the Hermanus area or those heading along the N2 further afield.

    If you are travelling between Cape Town and Caledon (or Hermanus) or if you are just an avid day tripper (like us) you must treat yourself to lunch at Gabrielskloof. This hill top venue is stunning and run by a very talented and dedicated couple. Frans is an amazing chef and delights in offering mouth-watering treats that will ensure you return again and again. The deli is well-stocked and so temptingly displayed that you will leave with an armload of goodies to remind you of the great food experience. An absolute gem.
