Unusual dishes with amazing combinations you wouldn’t think about. Like cauliflower florets in a babotie sauce with the custard at the bottom. Bone marrows with gunieafowl potbrood. Then for mains we had tender fillet with samp and spek, pork neck with spinach and lamb shank...slow roasted to perfection. And for dessert I had the dark chocolate truffle and some brownie ice cream for the kids. An amazing meal. Great service. Stunning views and a house filled with art to complete all your senses being taken care of.More

March 2021 ; Ambiance exceeded by warm welcome. Menu does not do justice to actual Foo, which was different and exceptional in presentation as well as in flovour (Kabeljou, Burger, Meat and Egg plant dish) How uplifting to find vegeterian dishes that are more than...BUTTERNUT AND SPINACH. Allowing own wine was a bonus. A must visit - even when not in the area .More

The best restaurant in Stanford/overberg area - and all round one of our absolute favorite restaurants! We are from Cape Town but frequently visit Hermanus/Stanford area. Manor house is up there with the best restaurants in the western cape. Personable, friendly and attentive staff. Breathtaking,...uninterrupted mountain view’s. And the food is just world class! If you in the area, it’s an absolute must visit. Thanks again to Elsabe, Sarah and team - we will see you again shortly!More

What a pleasure to dine at this wonderful restaurant. The interior design is perfectly welcoming, inspired by well chosen art works, with expansive views of mountains and rolling country lawns. All staff are highly efficient and communicate sensitively with customers. The menu is versatile and...interesting, food absolutely delicious .More

For a Saturday lunch, we visited the The Manor House Restaurant at Stanford valley. What a wonderful experience. The views are magnificent (See photo below). The maitre’d was attentive and visited us several times during the meal. Our waiter (it was his first day on...the job we later discovered) was fantastic. I had the deep fried Camembert starter. My wife had the lamb ribbetjies. Both were excellent (lamb so soft). For mains I had the fillet steak. It was perfectly cooked and came with flavourful accompaniments. My wife had the pork neck with cracking. Excellent. The phyllo pastry with milk tart ice cream is definitely the best choice. Excellent wine list. This place cannot be missed.More
