“What a stunning location for a restaurant, overlooking the Polo field (games apparently on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays ) and the mountains, what a view. The food was excellent and so was the service and the menu so diverse everybody found something they like. Will see me again next time in Paarl.”

TripAdvisor Review

“The service is great with attention to detail. Our favourite meal at the Polo club has to be their burger, and of course the thin crust pizza (Parma ham and rocket) Best accompanied by their Val de Vie Shiraz wine. The scenery is amazing, atmosphere relaxing, very well priced and a good range of wines available to choose from.”

TripAdvisor Review

“We visited Val de Vie Polo Estate and the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Unbelievable views with lush Polo Field and the food was tasty, plenty and well served. Will definitely recommend it to all the “Out of Towners” and Visitors – it is not every day that you get good food, good service and a Polo Match all in one.”

“Shirley and I just wish to thank you again for helping to make our 30th wedding anniversary yesterday a day to remember. We enjoyed our meal in your restaurant with the added “treats” thrown in. We will definitely be back – probably with friends and our four grown up children. I will also suggest your restaurant as a possible venue for the Shell Pensioners’ Association lunches which they have every two months at different venues around the greater CT area – sometimes in the Southern Suburbs and other times in the Northern Suburbs or Winelands. While Val de Vie may be a bit further out than some of the “oldies” might wish to travel, I think that they will agree it is worth the extra drive to get there.”


In the Beginning...

The idea of "Val de Vie" started almost 30 years ago when the visionary Martin Venter had a vivid dream of a place in the winelands his family could call home.
