Camphors at Vergelegen Signature Restaurant

Dine | Fine Dining | Beyond Stellenbosch

The Camphors at Vergelegen signature restaurant takes its name from the ancient giant camphor trees, planted in 1700, situated in front of the historic Homestead.  The restaurant overlooks expansive lawns and beautiful trees complementing the overall dining experience and creating an ambiance never to be forgotten.

After only a year of operation, Camphors was awarded eighth place in the Top Ten restaurants in South Africa, in The Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards 2013, as well as being the Regional Winner - Wine Tourism Restaurant - in the 2014 Best of Wine Tourism Awards, Great Wine Capitals.

Vergelegen produces classical wine varietals and the ever changing menu reflects a modern take on classical international and local food dishes, specifically designed to complement Vergelegen's award-winning wines. The Sommelier and his restaurant team guide diners through the menu and recommended wine selections to ensure a relaxed and memorable food and wine experience.  This experience is tailored for both wine and food connoisseurs and everyday visitors alike who want to enjoy an unpressured dining experience.  Regrettably, Camphors is not child-friendly.  For tables of 8 guests (or more), a reduced option a la carte menu is recommended.

Camphors at Vergelegen is open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday between 12h00 and 15h00 and dinner service Friday and Saturday from 18h30 to 21h00.  Reservations essential.  Telephone 021 847 2131 or email:
