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.

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.

The venue has beautiful views and it is very nice to sit outside on a sunny day. The food however was very disappointing.

Beautiful surroundings, currently lots of blooming flowers and sunbirds. Restaurants overlooks lush green lawn and pond in front of face-brick cellars. Exquisite mountainous backdrop. Food average and pricey. Service okay. Kid friendly.

Part of the Dornier Wine Estate, this is a great place to enjoy the best in life. Spend time with your family on the generous verandah and pair some great Stellenbosch wines with dishes from a creative seasonal menu.You can taste our wines at the table or at the Wine Lounge.
