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.

Since opening in 2012, Camphors has consistently been placed in the Top Ten 10 prestigious Eat Out Mercedes Benz Restaurant Awards and in 2017 and again in 2019, won the coveted Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award. Camphors is also included in the twenty-one exceptional South African restaurants in the JHP Gourmet Guide.

Vergelegen produces classical wine varietals and the ever-changing menu reflects seasonal inspirations with a modern approach to complementing 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.
