Appropriately named ‘Heaven’ is situated in an idyllic vineyard setting in the verdant Hemel & Aarde valley, just before Hermanus. With huge windows maximizing the jaw-droppingly beautiful view, dining at Heaven is a feast of all the senses. Delicate wines combined with delicious, unpretentious and hearty food are what make this restaurant a firm favourite with international visitors and locals alike.
With a menu that changes every two weeks, Heaven always promises a fresh approach to their cuisine. Famous for their deep fried onion starter - with cream cheese, tandoori chicken, pineapple salsa and coriander filling – the menu also seduces the taste buds with many other sumptuous dishes. The steaks are exceptional and must be tasted to be believed, and with toppings such as Camembert and cherries or caramelized onions and buffalo mozzarella, they are also truly unique.
A carefully curated winelist ensures the perfect pairing with every morsel, and a dedicated tasting room awaits for those who make Heaven a part of their wine route adventure. Desserts are whipped up by passionate Yolande who serves a memorable Pavlova made with a selection of fresh berries, cherries and cream.
