La Dolce Vita
A little bit of Italy at Hartbeespoort Dam
La Dolce Vita is dedicated to bringing the unique tastes and smells of Italy to you in an intimate and romantic setting.
Our menu of select authentic Italian dishes are prepared for you by Head Chef Paige Darare who trained under Italian Chef Guido Luccetta for over 10 years in the infamous Quido’s restaurant Harare and has been with La Dolce Vita for 9 years now, bringing this very essential part of Italy to La Dolce Vita.
Located in the quaint village of Kosmos not only lends itself to al fresco dining with great views of the Dam but also to the old custom of after diner walks in a safe and secure environment. Most guests staying in Kosmos’s many B & B’s actually take a romantic moonlit stroll to dinner and back. But beware and informed that we have had a 100% success rate of marriage proposals at La Dolce Vita, 368 and counting. Proof of this lays in the number of locks placed on our forever chain by the entrance.
Due to the intimacy of the restaurant we do not allow children under 12, however they are most welcome to join us on the lower level of our Sunday boat cruise when we pack up the restaurant and put it on the boat for a 2 hour Sunday cruise with Harties Boat Company. An Italian feast awaits while we gently cruise the waters of Hartbeespoort Dam shadowed by the Magaliesburg mountain range.
Be inspired…La Dolce Vita is a 4 star accredited full service guest house situated on the Magaliesburg Mountain Range overlooking Hartbeespoort Dam, not far from Muldersdrift and the Cradle of Humankind. Just 45 minutes drive from either Joburg or Pretoria but a world way. Fondly known as Harties it offers a great destination for your next conference or team building.
Your conference or team building will be co-ordinated by Natasha, our professional conference coordinator and together with her team she will leave no leaf unturned to ensure a successful conference or team breakaway.

All aboard for the ”Best Dam” Sunday Lunch Cruise……
We start off our Harties experience with a welcome drink in hand as we board for our 2 hour cruise around the Dam, discovering all the hidden estates, coves and interesting waterfront houses along the way. There is just something magical about cruising these gentle waters shadowed by the Magaliesburg mountain range.
When we are seated your waitrons will deliver your table starter platters with fresh breads followed by the opening of our scrumptious Buffet. If by any chance you still have space…decadent dessert will be served.
Our trip takes us along the Kosmos foreshore to the dam wall, past the zoo and The Transvaal Yacht club. We then hit open water to Oberon and Eagles landing to see some of it’s stunning water front homes, then onto Pecanwood and the Dykes of The Islands Estate ending our trip cruising past Kshane estate and sandy lane golf course.
We dock at 14:300 bid you “Arrivederci” knowing that soon you will be back
