Owner description: 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.

This was the last stop on our visit to South Africa, and one of our favorites. Our whole family enjoyed the traditional South African braai (barbeque). The grounds are beautiful, and it was fun to see where the meat is cooked out back. They had a huge dog that came into the dining area, (almost as tall as our table) and a little dog as well. The food was delicious and plentiful.

Spent Friday afternoon on a team building outing with my company. Ben is amazing host and so personal and made the cellar tour interactive and interesting. We got fed, home made braai bread and snoek pate, along with some amazing white and red wines. Treated to the BoereBraai, just how a south African feast should be, braai broedjies, corn, chops, wors, salad and sosaties, Amazing!! . Would go back every week to have that meal again. We were paired into groups and blended our own red wine, with some blind tastings it was a great way to end. Staff and setting was the best experience Ive had in the winelands so far.

What an amazing experience me and my colleagues had at this prestigious wine farm. We had the great honor of being taken through on an educational trip through the wine making process before settling in for one of the best braais I've ever had! Their Momberg flagship wine is one of my favorite reds and the pot broodtjies are definitely something to be spoken about. I will definitely be returning with my friends and family in the future to enjoy the experience all over again.

Visited for a friend's birthday and we were a group of about 20 South Africans, with several young children. I would definitely recommend the Middelvlei Boerebraai to both South Africans and tourists. There is loads of space for the kids to run around, and the friendly dogs who live there seem happy with all the attention.

Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.

Food is a piece of wors (sausage), lamb chop, delicious 'potbrood' (farm bread) potato salad, pumpkin fritters and green salad. All very good, although the potbrood, which comes with smoked snoek pate could have come with a bit more of the pate - it isn't quite enough for a large table.
Also, the fritters are so delicious, would have loved more!

There is pudding for afters for R20 extra, but we had brought a cake, which they were very happy to allow us to do, even providing a big cakeboard.

It is wonderful to sit and relax in the fresh air, and everyone enjoyed it. Would recommend it!

Myself and my husband stayed in the cottage for a long weekend. This was a very special experience. The cottage is totally private and extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated with an authentic Cape flavour. Great beds! Little details like umbrellas in the coat stand, plenty of firewood should you need it, lovely books about the area, games for the family in case of bad weather, pool chairs and cushions. A home away from home. The sounds and sights of farm life make this unique. The whole place is really vibey. We were too busy to walk around the farm but friends in the area tell me the walks are wonderful. And Jeanneret was an amazing hostess!
