Pomegranate is an example of what not to do when you start a restaurant in an exquisite setting. We love old architecture, and visited Vergenoegd some time ago, expecting the restaurateurs to be sensitive to the beautiful old farm. However, the interior of the restaurant...More

This restaurant is truly a hidden gem, sadly it will be closing at the end of October as the farm has been sold. I have no doubt that wherever Pomegranate relocates, it will be a success. I would recommend the duck it was excellent.

The combination of simple, well executed food from an uncluttered menu, paired with mouthwatering wines and served in a wonderfully convivial manner by head-chef-cum-sommelier makes this one of my favourite restaurants in the winelands. Can;t wait to return for that tomato tart!

Astounding food. Astounding atmosphere. Always amazing. We really love visiting every time. The kids love the wife open spaces and the duck run.

Pomegranate in Stellenbosch is, in my opinion, one of the best restaurants in Cape Town, or anywhere for that matter. Cuisine is tops – the menu, always including a game, fish, beef and vegetarian dish, varies daily according to what’s best available. Also the duck,...More
