Located in the heart of old wine country, Ruitersvlei is nestled between Paarl Rock and the Mountain Reserve, resting on some of the finest wine soils in the southern hemisphere. Come eat our food and drink our wine. Our Mountainside restaurant accommodates 60 guests for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Breakfast Menu includes a full Farmer's Breakfast (eggs, bacon, boerewors, caramelised onions, sautéed mushrooms, grilled tomato, toasted farm bread, butter and homemade jams), an Early Bird Breakfast (scrambled eggs with farm bread, butter and jam) and a Flapjack Tower.


Starters at Mountainside include Smoked Salmon and Avocado Salad on a Creamed Cheese Blini, Mussels with a Saffron Creamy Sauce and a Beetroot and Goat Cheese Salad, whilst Mains include a Beef & Lamb Burger, Lamb Shank, Grilled Fish and a Spinach & Butternut Lasagne. For those with a sweet tooth, Mountainside offers Traditional Malva Pudding, a Fresh Fruit Skewer or Cake of the Day.

Ruitersvlei’s old cellar lends itself as an ideal wedding or conference venue. The old cellar seats 200 people and opens onto a great reception area or dance floor. We also have a smaller venue which is often used as a chapel, which can accommodate 80 guests. During good weather, nothing compares with the calm, tranquil outdoor setting with panoramic views of the Cape for a truly romantic experience.


We are happy to announce that the heritage guest cottages have undergone renovations and can now welcome overnight guests.
