The Glasshouse at Hazendal: A Designer Dining Destination in the Winelands

The Glasshouse at Hazendal: A Designer Dining Destination in the Winelands

A contemporary daytime eatery on a world-class wine estate.

There’s no doubt that Hazendal has set its sights on taking the luxury-wine-estate concept into the 21st century. Visitors to the farm will be welcomed and impressed by a series of unique and enchanting experiences that combine its Russian owners’ heritage and the estate’s South African roots.

The Glasshouse at Hazendal

From the charming Babushka Deli selling its own artisanal products to the sophisticated Russian Tea Room offering a fascinating (and delicious) Russian High Tea Ceremony, the dining experiences on offer are a series of sensory and visual delights.

Glasshouse Interior Hazendal Estate

The newest addition to Hazendal’s menu of culinary pleasures is The Glasshouse, a contemporary dining space that not only embraces its lush bucolic surroundings; it ramps them up stupendously. Inspired by Victorian-era glasshouses in some of the world’s most loved botanical gardens – albeit with a thoroughly modern bent – The Glasshouse is another nod to Hazendal’s commitment to honour the past while leaning into the future.

Glasshouse Menu Hazendal Estate

Executive chef Michélle Theron has created a concise seasonal winter lunch set menu (R295 per person) that offers contemporary casual food befitting the easygoing (and easy-on-the-eye) space but with an undeniable dose of style. The kids’ menu has loads for younger diners and, naturally, the winelist is awash with superb offerings from the estate itself.
