We'd booked the boerebraai for Sunday lunch with friends visiting from Gauteng - I had checked out several reviews and it looked good. We were made to feel very welcome as we arrived, and we were seated under an umbrella in the garden - there's a lot of bird life in the fields which we enjoyed watching while our waitress (Hilary) started bringing the courses. The starter was a freshly baked boere bun, served with butter, olive tapenade and/or snoek pate (absolutely delicious).
We'd ordered their Sauvignon Blanc to begin with, but when our guests said they'd like red wine with the meat, Hilary kindly offered tasting portions of the three reds on offer, before we ordered a bottle of the favourite (Momberg). The main course was a typical SA boerebraai - lamb chops, boerewors, potato salad, a green salad and pumpkin fritters. A great added extra was the braai toasted sandwiches filled with cheese, tomato and onion. Everything was well cooked and beautifully presented, with a delightful attention to detail. Malva pudding with ice-cream for dessert (yum) and coffee was available by the fire.
All in all, a great way to enjoy lunch - made all the more pleasant by a knowledgeable, friendly waitress. It's not fine dining, but Midddelvlei certainly delivers exactly what they promise and we'll definitely recommend it to friends.
