We met with family and friends for a relaxed lunch at The Dornier Wine Estate restaurant. My meal was good but overall the consensus was that the quality was variable. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the different wines that we sampled from the Estate

We went there for a Sunday lunch, after 4 days of Stellenbosch and mostly ticking all the wineries we wanted to do. The location is stunning, like any other farm, and the staff very friendly. However, the lunch we had was below any expectation and level we have been used to during our SA holiday: the duck was well-done, with... More

Modern architectural design, the winery on a reflective pond, is a total opposite to the classical style the Dornier Homestead villa, where accommodation is available. There is also a popular up-scale restaurant Dornier Bodega located next to the Dornier Homestead. These attractions make Dornier Wine Estate a place worth vising in the Stellenbosch Wineland. The wine tasting room is located... More

We had high hopes when we got here because the place was so gorgeous and we had a great view at our table. However, the food was subpar in comparison to other similar venues in Stellenbosch. Our salad was over dressed, and our cheese board was not great. I had rare tuna, and it did not seem very fresh. Overall... More

We stopped here because we couldn't find the winery we were looking for - turned into a great experience. There is a top quality restaurant in an historic building as well as a beautiful winery. Yes, it is the same Dornier which built (or builds) the planes.

After wine tastings in the Valley, my daughter and I decided to pop into Dornier for a lunch. If you are looking for a formal restaurant, this is not for you . . . . but if you want excellent, wholesome food which is full of flavour and served in perfect portions . . . . make a point of... More

Right by the outside restaurant/bistro area is a children's play area suitable for young children. Parents and Grandparents can relax enjoy wine and tapas or a restaurant meal while the children play.

A beautiful vineyard off the beaten path. Not the most well known among tourists, a but secluded, so a more relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful scenery and lovely wine. Try the chenin blanc pinotage. The malbec is also very unique. One of the prettier vineyards!
