In the lap of casual luxury, Mont Marie offers a unique food, wine and family experience in a spectacular country setting on the banks of the Blaauwklippen River. Using only the freshest ingredients, sourced from local suppliers, Pieter adds unique and authentic flavours to a variety of mouth-watering dishes, which reflect a South African personality.
To remain challenged and inspired for both Pieter and his staff, the menu changes every two weeks.
My favorite Sunday lunch spot!
This beautifully scenic restaurant deck provides the perfect atmosphere for a glass of MCC or cold glass of G&T on the sun beds infont of the dam and the kids love lounging on the bean bags.
I couldn't think of a better way to spend a sunday. Relaxing in the winelands, great wine and fantastic food. The line fish with risotto was the overall winner at our table. Kitchen was a little slow, but the waitress kept us informed all the time. You can request a table in the kids play area so that you can relax and watch the kids at the same time without having to get up.
Mixed feelings about our experience today. We were given a table not having booked and the staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good but not amazing, the pork didn't have crackling as advertised. The wine was expensive, 100% mark up on their cellar price! Yes a relaxed atmosphere in fairly plush surroundings, but the lady on a table near us whipped her breast out to feed her babies, twins, and the birthday cake presented to the same table was done with the flourish of Spur.
The Mont Marie restaurant nestled amongs the green vineyards and embracing mountains on Blaauwklippen road, just outside of Stellenbosch, is a MUST for the food connoisseur!
The welcoming staff and Chef Pieter Vlok's vibrant hands-on chefs are commendable, plus the views from the deck are immaculate!
The breakfast menu offers a variety of superb options and a special treat and I think popular item is the eggs hollandaise-something worth killing for!
Lunch offers a super selection of tasty meals....perfect portion size, sensational taste on the palate and beautiful presentation-perfection on every plate! A supberb selection of fine cuisine!
A special treat is undoubtedly the steaks which are matured and served with whatever is in season at the moment. Fish is collected daily from Gordons' Bay and is equally well prepared with a delicate taste and texture.
This hidden jewel warrants a visit if nouvelle cuisine is your choice. You simply must experience this gastronomic adventure for your tastebuds. The wine list and service of the staff makes the experience even more pleasant-being perfect.
A big plus is the kiddies menu that caters for the young ones and whilst parents can enjoy the view, the awesome jungle gym caters for the little ones
