We arrived at this beautiful estate and were greeted by 2 friendly security guards who checked our licences and directed us to the restaurant. The restaurant itself is right at the top of the estate with great views of the mountain and farm itself. We were seated inside and were greeted with our waiter, Taffy, who was excellent right through.... More

We were taken to De Grendel by friends in Cape Town and were totally taken with the beautiful view from the veranda's, the superb tasting during which we were guided so effortlessly by the staff, then onto the lunch in the restaurant. The Kudu appetizer was mouth watering. Highly recommended for both wine tasting and dining.

You approach via a long avenue to arrive at a very interesting building, a slope leads you to the restaurant which in turn looks down on a lake in the grounds of de Grendel and over the city of Cape Town and Table Mountain in the distance. Walking down the slope to the restaurant... More

Very nice and tranquil location. Decent food and wine. The service was excellent! The seating outside can only be chosen when you are there, so it makes sense to be there at opening times. It was even possible to book a table via email on the same day.
