Clos Malverne

The Restaurant nestled in the Devon Valley outside Stellenbosch, welcomes winter with a feast of comforting classics, conjured up in an exclusive Winter Warmer Menu which alternates weekly to rekindle the mid-year slumber with a myriad of wholesome tastes, unique to the season. In addition, the restaurant’s signature Food & Wine Pairing Menu also features a new sumptuous lineup of hearty dishes to transform winter from a period of hibernation into a food celebration. 

The new Winter Warmer Menu, which turns up the heat from Tuesdays to Fridays until the end of August, offers enthusiasts a three course lunchtime food and wine indulgence of generous portions at a mere R158 per person. Each dish on this sizzling bill of fare is served with a matching Clos Malverne wine.

Think Spicy Tomato & Bacon Soup, enriched with gorgonzola, fresh farm-style bread and a glass of Clos Malverne’s Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend to spruce up the palate. Followed by a Chicken & Mango Curry matched with the well-rounded Clos Malverne Chardonnay to satisfy any hunger. Or kiss winter blues goodbye with a melt-in-the-mouth Mandarin Malva Pudding served with a dollop of pistachio and butternut ice cream and the estate’s popular coffee-style pinotage, Le Café.

With its idyllic setting amidst the vineyards and stunning views from its wraparound balcony, The Restaurant @ Clos Malverne has developed a loyal following since 2009 for its fresh, seasonal and easy, contemporary cuisine or as chef Nadia Louw Smith describes it “world food with an earthy sophistication, cooked from the heart and presented with perfection”.

Clos Malverne Estate also enjoys recognition as a popular one-stop wine tasting destination. The restaurant’s inviting wine lounge is the perfect spot to unwind with a bottle of Clos Malverne’s flagship Cape Blends or classic whites. 

If you like what you taste, Clos Malverne can deliver the wines straight to your doorstep via their online wine sales facility. The Restaurant @ Clos Malverne is open daily for lunch except on Mondays and bookings are essential. For more information on The Restaurant @ Clos Malverne or the reserve your table, contact the restaurant at Tel: (+27)21 865 2022 or send an email to
