A vinyard with a difference! Its own rugby pitch! As you drive for what must be at least half a kilometre you pass a private rugby pitch and see the vines up on the hillside while passing men and machines loading barrels into warehouses. This lively old place is an ideal destination for breakfast or any meal but it is... More

We took 4-friends to dinner at Buitenverwachting. The food was excellent but the service, if possible, was even better. When you are hosting a meal, you hope the evening flows effortlessly & this is exactly what happened. Despite the restaurant being busy, at every point there was a staff member on hand to minister to our every need & thus... More

We arrived and were welcomed by the staff who were extremely friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, the food was wonderful and they allowed us time between courses so we did not feel rushed at all. All of the staff were great but Taps, the manager was extremely helpful. We will certainly both return and recommend.

The springbok rare - medium rare is nice with good extraas, not too big. The chocolate desert is a nice finishing touch. The staff is good, relaxed, time... More

The best thing in this restaurant is the surroundings. So beautiful. But who wants to sit THREE hours for lunch. And the food was nothing special, but the portions were really big! and the vine was quite excpensive if you think about the quality. Well, the scene was so great that it helped a lot. Would I go there again,... More

This was without doubt the best meal I had while in Cape Town, the setting was wonderful, the views over the hillside vineyard were amazing and the food was inventive and delicious. Did not have a lunch reservation but they managed to find a table in the part of the restaurant which overlooks the vineyard and the view was fabulous,... More

We last ate here 5 years ago when we were last in Cape Town and remembered the experience with pleasure. So we booked again and were very pleased to return. The setting, the ambience, the service,the wine and the food is excellent. We hope to return within another 5 years! We highly recommend this restaurant.
