You will be paying R80.00 for a starter as well as a desert, service started off well and then we had to wait for a good hour for our desert. The portions are very small for the main meal as well I advise that you check the prices before making a booking. The only positive was the beautiful view.

We had lunch at Bodega this Saturday. The outside eating area has lovely views of the valley and mountains and they have a nice play area for children. The service was good and the food was all delicious and beautifully presented. I had the crispy duck as a main course and my husband had the pork belly. I will however... More

Very unaccommodating, so much for "child friendly". Arrived to an empty restaurant asking if we could please order a quick kiddies meal as our 1 year old was starving. Told point blank they were "fully booked" the entire day.

We have just enjoyed a family Christmas lunch at Dornier Bodega and loved it. The atmosphere is relaxed and the outside dining area easily accommodated our party of 6 children and 16 adults. There is an outside children's play area with swings and a jungle gym which kept the littlies occupied very happily. The spirit in which the food was... More

To start with, I must first comment on the very attentive serving staff. Pleasant, efficient and on the ball. Just a bit pushy in selling their wines, but that, after all, is their job. We were a group of 7 oldies celebrating our 50th anniversary, having matriculated in 1966. So the atmosphere at the table was chirpy and convivial. We... More

Another fabulous gem of a restaurant to visit in Stellenbosch. The view is spectacular if you are dining on the balcony. The food is really great and the experience of dining in such a beautiful setting, even better. Worth a visit. A jungle gym for the children and a lovely lawn in front for the children to entertain themselves.

The Bodega has a traditional eatery with great food and friendly staff. Worth going off the beaten track to see the old and new combined. The red brick winery is a great contrast again the old bodega restaurant with its rustic charm and vitages photos. Sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. Don't miss this one on your wine... More

We ended up here, just by chance, and what a lovely surprise it was!! From our delightful waiter to our lovely food, we enjoyed our outing. The setting of course is beautiful and our food great. We had the mussel potjie, pulled pork hamburger and flamküchen. We were all more than satisfied with our very tasty meals and good fine... More

This is one of the hidden gems in the winelands. They serve a nice relaxed lunch with some quirky menu items. Not to everyones taste, but if you fancy something different give it a try. The prices are not cheap, but not too expensive for this part of the world.
