This was the best meal that I had in three nights in Stellenbosch. I had dropped by earlier in the day and was told that they were booked for the evening but that I should check back. I did and was very glad, they had room for me at a table for two. The restaurant is on the main road,... More

They were able to fit us in on a Sunday at lunchtime which was great but possibly and indication of the quality of the food. We had burgers, a salad and the chicken. Service was slow, the food okay (very big portions and the burgers were lovely, the chicken was enormous and my salad was okay)but something was missing overall... More

Came here without a reservation, managed to get a nice table at the courtyard. the service was prompt and good. The food and wine were good, save for the fish cakes which were way too salty.

Venue: Stunning old girl, beautifully renovated and modernized. Cape Dutch Heritage. Starters: Fish Carpaccio and Goats Cheese Pasty Both were excellent, well balanced plates. Waiters wine suggestions good. Mains: Lamb cutlets and Chicken @ Prawn curry. The cutlets were delicious. Nice char, beautifully neutralized with coli-mash. The curry had an identity crisis. Error on the coriander I suspect. Deserts: Cheesecake,... More

To play golf well, as major Big Easy shareholder Ernie Els would tell you, you need more than a powerful, accurate drive (Els's "Big Easy"), you also need a combination of guile and inspiration to get from fairway to green and then, of course, forensic putting. In other words, you need the complete game. In restaurant terms the complete game... More

Went there for lunch on our first day in Stellingenbosch and then with friends for a dinner later in the week. Excellent food and wine. As I am on a strict gluten/ wheat free diet their staff were very knowledge about the various ingredients in the various dishes. Lovely atmosphere .

Being a uni town, there is a lot more restaurants tailored for them. This one attracts those that prefer to wear trousers and not shorts. Very good food and service to match.

I ate here with my wife on a weekday evening. We didn't have a reservation, but were told there would be a table if we were happy to wait at the bar for 15 or 20 mins. There were a good selection of wines and spirits at the bar which had a cosy feel. After our 20 mins or so... More
