Although we failed to get a dinner reservation, lunch proved a great success. Food options are minimal, but rather good with some wine tasting. And you cannot go wrong with Mandela's favourite wine. It is worth walking around the estate.

This farm offers beautiful scenery and the option to sit downstairs in the cellar, in the lunch area or outside during the week. The menu, during the week, offers a choice between salmon and sirloin with the focus on wine tasting and sharing the history of the farm. As a solo traveller I left with the impression that the team... More

We stopped this winery and completed our wine tasting with lunch. Food was delicious and wine tasting was great. Highly recommended.

Absolutely the best winery in South Africa! Their wines are exceptional, and so is the service and the whole place (very beautiful). The restaurant is worth praise. Rust en Vrede are red wines but they have a sister vinefarm called Donkiesbaai - their their white as well

Ideal outside setting with tables on the terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens and views, offering wine tasting and lunch. Rust en vrede is world renowned for its wines and they won't disappoint. However the meal on this occasion was disappointing. You have a choice of sirloin or salmon, but now instead of serving the salad and french fries in separate... More

We paid Rust en Vrede a visit last weekend for a wonderful and insightful wine tasting under the trees. It was an afternoon well spent and is definitely worth a visit. However this morning I was horrified when I realized how much they are over-charging visitors to the farm when buying wine there. I frequent vineyards around the world and... More

Rust en Vrede is worth a visit if you enjoy red wine. The story behind their wines are explained well by the staff serving you. We sat under the shade of the trees on the patio sipping some of the best red wines on offer with a view of the vineyards. This is an upmarket wine estate so lunch choice... More

We revisited Rust en Vrede with our visiting friends. The menu this time was not our cup of tea and not everything was as we experienced it before, e.g. the Kabeljau and everything along was not particularly tasty. As everywhere prices have increased and were at the limit for value for money. We hope that this was a one time... More

We had dinner for 8 here recently: a super setting, though just too chilly in the evenings to sit outside. Staff were attentive and friendly throughout the evening. We went for the 4-course menu and even though every dish was good, at the end of the evening it all felt rather too fussy and over complicated. Prices were on the... More
