Our Unique Location
Bellgables is situated inside The Cradle Moon Conservancy, which was created to focus on conservation and rehabilitating the land and wildlife in the area. Because of the new conservation initiatives that have been put into place, our guests are now afforded the opportunity to experience wildlife roaming freely. Newly introduced game includes Giraffe, Zebra, Kudu, Sable, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Impala and Springbuck. In support of the conservation efforts, we charge a minimal fee per vehicle to help develop and maintain the conservation project.

What Our Patrons Say
Everything about this restaurant is designed and executed so perfectly that you will want to come back time and time again. I know that for a fact as it’s also where I elected to have my birthday dinner this year too! I would like to say thank you not only to Errol and La Motte for such a wonderful evening, but also Grace and Quiet for taking such good care of us.
Bellgables is up by the Cradle of Mankind so only a 15 – 20 min drive from the city. It’s so worth it that I implore you to go if you ever have the chance!
We have been fortunate to visit the fantastic Bellgables twice in recent months, and each time was memorable for both the atmosphere and the food. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable and the food is exemplary. Most recently we had the Mushroom soup starter that was seasoned to perfection and deep in flavour. We also shared a starter plate of the Springbok carpaccio so as not to miss out. The duck main was superbly presented as well as perfectly cooked. Bellgables is in the countryside, zebra and giraffe roam freely on the estate and on one of our visits this was a delight for the children in the lunch group. Definitely will be returning to try out more of the meals on the menu.
Gonna miss you so much 💔💔💔- leaving for Western Cape. Bellgables will forever remain the most beautiful and my absolute favourite dining out restaurant. Always left you in awe of the dècor, stunning food, lovely warm fireplace, friendliest host (Errol Gobey) and waiters. Whenever I come to visit Jhb, I will make sure to visit your stunning, tranquil “make-me-feel-like-royalty” restaurant. I don’t have the words to properly describe your unique restaurant. Fine dining is an absolute understatement. Made special memories there with the Harley Davidson Group.
Lots and lots and lots of Love and Good Wishes for a prosperous future.
Love, Alba Delport
Wow, you guys did not disappoint. Awesome atmosphere, excellent service and food that is out of this world. Let’s not forget the Happy Anniversary on our dessert plate that was such a nice touch and made the occasion even more special.
Many thanks. We will be back.

This place is very special as my parents got married here and they took me here for a celebration after finishing school. Their food is delicious, I’d say Michelin star quality because it’s made with love and presented beautifully.
-The brinjal stack
-The salmon wrapped roses
-The Norwegian salmon
-Their beef fillet steak
Everything is cooked to absolute perfection. Their salmon melts in your mouth and it’s so flaky. Their beef is juicy and tender with that hint of li’l blueberries on the side. Their side of potatoes is so good, it’s so buttery and mushy. Their starters are so refreshing and appetizing.

What an amazing experience 😀
It really is an out of this world dining experience to set your senses on fire.
Beautiful and unusual decor that mesmerizes you from entering to the time you leave.
Take a walk on the beautiful grounds and garden area and soak in some of Mother natures finest landscapes.
A must visit dining 🍽 experience

Another wonderful evening at Bellgables. Thanks for a wonderful evening Errol. The salmon main course and the trio of desserts were amazing. Loved the deco as usual, especially what I consider “loadshedding Errol style.” Could not help chuckle over the lemons on the candelabra!!
