Jewel of The Overberg - The Inside Guide

Move over Hemel-en-Aarde – there’s a new foodie kid in the Overberg.

There’s something decidedly dreamy about the less crowded rolling hills and green pastures of the beautiful Stanford Valley. Fabulous food, glorious scenic landscapes and fresh country air are food for the mind, body and soul.


The newly opened Manor House Restaurant at the Stanford Valley Guest House is the perfect foodie destination – it’s on our list of the best restaurants in Hermanus! The super-stylish furniture and décor, carefully curated by co-owner Elsabe Nauta and sourced from vintage, antique and junk shops in Cape Town and Stanford, creates the perfect canvas for enjoying a lovely meal, with views over the paddocks towards the Akkedisberg Mountains.

A warm fireplace greets visitors on cold and rainy days – a perfect welcome and well worth the 30-minute drive from Hermanus. The modern country-style food is beautifully prepared and presented by consultant chef Madré Malan (formerly of Madre’s Kitchen in Stanford) and her culinary team.
