About Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate
Nestled between two gentle hills on the banks of the Botrivier Lagoon, lies the Benguela Cove Wine Estate.

Perfectly positioned to capture these panoramic views, the 210 Hectares of open land, formed by a large cove on the lagoon, offer just the right amount of seclusion and privacy. Open daily for wine tasting and lunch. Breakfast Sat and Sun, Dinner Thursday - Sunday

Just popped in for a wine tasting being recommended from family who visited a few moths back. So glad we decided to check it out! Amazing views. I had the cheese and wine pairing and my husband the chocolate and wine. We were helped by Colin who was very helpful, funny and knowledgeable. Will definitively come back to try another pairing. Well worth a visit.

Review of: Wine Tasting
Naomi is probably the best host I have ever met during all my visits to restaurants and wine estates in the Cape. Her energy and sense of humor makes you want to stay longer. We started with a wine tasting and all the Benguela Cove wines are excellent. We then moved on to have lunch with some ice cold craft beer and very tasty food. The service at the wine tasting and the restaurant was professional, quick and always with a smile. Make time to really enjoy Benguela Cove.

I was shocked by how terrible the service was at Benguela Cove, especially after hearing nothing but amazing things about it and seeing its beauty. My friends and I made sure to stop by and we are currently in a 50/50 mindset whether it was a good experience or a memory we can one day laugh at. The Food? To die for, absolutely delicious. The Service? Nearly soured my appetite. My “lovely” waiter that day was Nigel. At least I think it was, since I saw him approximately once the entire time we were there, after a half-mumbled introduction. He never seemed to be within sight or sound distance at any time of the day, and I was more attended on by the rushing runners (who were lovely girls) than any of the waiters who seemed to have far better things to do than their job. The front desk manager/half-hearted hostess was the worst though. She had the look of a manager, but the air of someone who didn’t want to be there in the slightest. She had an attitude that could only be described with words that would get me banned from this website, and it was abundantly clear that some of the bad service stemmed from worse management when I saw how she operates. She actively ignored any of my attempts to get her attention, as well as any of the kitchen staff whom I saw more than once try alongside myself to get some help. The Food was quite tasty though. Only reason I would ever go back.
