The venue was absolutely great - stunning view. However, the service & attitude of staff was very much to be desired. We were only able to reserve a table for 4 instead of 8. We did ask if they could accommodate the rest of us but were told emphatically that they couldn't as they were fully booked. (when we arrived,... More

Despite an epic view, the food was well below par. On top of that, food arrived which wasn't ordered. Won't be hurrying back.

Fantastic venue. You just can't say enough about this view and then you order a steak prepared by the Master Bruce himself and You question almost every steak you have possibly ever had in your life and why you had even bothered. Do your self a favor and just go you will not regret it Amazing!!!

We visited La Vierge Restuarant after the news spread that a well known restaurant took over the La Vierge Restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The food and service is very good, the portions realy enough for the price and the staff are very friendly and helpfull. We will definitely visit again

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times. We have never been disappointed - each time had a good meal and very good service. Found everyone to be very helpful. The setting is just magnificent and and the ambiance delightful.

Magnificent views over the wine-lands toward the ocean in the distance. The quality of the food is excellent (had the yellowtail fish) and the selection of wines is tops. Service could be ramped up with the addition of extra waitering staff...the staff who are there are dedicated and willing, but overworked. Ambience is relaxing....ideal for an extended afternoon lunch.

In Hemel-and-Aarde Valley, Hermanus, my choices are La Vierge and Newton Johnson. Great Great views, and excellent service, and very special Wimeries and Restaurants. Not cheap for South Africans, but very special and worth a visit. For people from "Transvaal and elders" - a WOW experience !!!

La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.
