Brilliant chocolate tasting experience. Best bean to bar chocolate with lovely choices of devilliers chocolates. So good. Dine at the restaurant afterwards. Try the biltong platter and ribs! Yummy fries, great salads, boerewors, and chicken burgers!! Lovely views of the Paarl valley. Great staff.

Here you find the perfect mix of incredible scenery, surroundings and amazing food. CBC brewery and DeVilliers Chocolate are both a must see. Booking is essential for the restaurants on weekends and keep weather in mind as it's an outdoor venue.

What a pleasant surprise. We had chocolate for breakfast. Lucky we dont have to have our parents permission for this. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the chocolates devine. We also bought a few slabs of the tasty chocolate. Well worth going to.

This is basically a food-themed farmstead, with each area offering something slightly different. We stopped at the ice cream stall and enjoyed a few scoops each, then on to chocolate tasting (not overly impressed tbh). We finished our visit with a picnic made up of delicious ingredients selected from Bertus Basson. The lady in the shop was very helpful and... More
