When we arrived to Cuvee, we had no booking and we were told that the restaurant is fully booked! But one of the hostesses seeing our disappointed faces, said she will go and see what she can do (there was 6 of us!). And thanks to her protectiveness, we did get a table! Had an amazing food and wine! My... More

We had a great dinner at Cuvee, Simonsig. I was excited looking at the menu with all the creativity & different flavours it has to offer. The servers were very patient & polite to explain each item on the menu and it was great to taste. A perfect place for a sit-back & relaxing fine-dine experience.

We had lunch on the terrace. The fish of the day was prepared with a coriander pesto and coconut cream sauce along with butternut squash curry. The curry spicing was balanced. The beef sirloin was prepared medium rare as requested. It's an ideal place to stop for lunch when you are on a wine tour in the northern area of... More

We really enjoyed our meal here Whether it has been in the past a fine dining establishment I cannot comment, but the offering was fine for us - I would describe it as more of an elegant bistro. Very well cooked steaks with delicious sauces. Wide selection of wines available by the glass including interesting back vintages. The dining room... More

We revisited Cuvee today as we live close by in Stellenbosch and have had good meals there in the past. The menu is limited so now we expect the few dishes to be prepared with care and skill. Not so. We ordered lamb cutlets, medium with fried potatoes. The cutlets were very thin (like one would expect in Europe) and... More

We loved Simonsig wine estate in general, and the restaurant was no exception. Service was very attentive and I had a wonderful fillet steak washed down with a fine glass of the local red. The outdoor seating area in the restaurant was in a very tranquil setting, perfect for relaxing on a hot summer day. Don't miss out on the... More
