Overview

The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

Went to Middelvlei with a couple of friends for my birthday one Saturday. This was a great spot. Well done to all of you for the amazing boere braai and wine tasting combination. We will certainly be back soon. Keep up the good work.

We drove through to Cape Town (from Plett) on a Sunday morning, to meet great friends (plus their kids) for a lunch-time braai (barbeque is what the Americans and Aussies do, and is not even close). Given the hectic travel schedule of one of our...More

Great idea to give the country "feel" and the setting is peaceful.The food is average . The salads are fresh. The chops were questionable....lamb or goat? Wors was reasonable. All in all an experience to tick off the bucket list !

To be honest, my braai at home is tastier. The meat at Middelvlei is very low quality and not much to rave about. The idea is great but the waitress serving us needs to decide if she really wants to be there or not.
