On arrival we were the only people in the restaurant, and there were a lot of flies around the table. We ordered a bottle of Merlot and when it arrived it was chilled. We asked if the red wine was normally chilled and we got a one word answer, "No", but no further explanation. The waitress took it away and... More

When I wrote my review in March I was so dissappointed that I was sure not to visit the restaurant more this Year. However, as we really love the surroundings we decided for another visit. I am Happy to say it was far better than last time. Kingklip was ok, but the trio desert was worth the visit alone. Sorry,... More

Dear Sturle2, I am delighted that you paid us another visit, thank you, and that your time spent with us was an improvement on last time. There are most certainly worse ways to spend a summer afternoon than on our front stoep, or seated under the oaks, enjoying a meal and a glass of wine. We look forward to seeing... More

Delicious food and very good vine We had Even Züri Geschnetzeltes, different but delicious 👍 it's a lovely atmosphere under the old oak trees. It's not too big and quite private.

AllanWare, General Manager at The Restaurant At Neethlingshof, responded to this review

Dear Clau017, Thank you for visiting us at Neethlingshof and sharing your experience. Under the oak trees with the natural shade, and the view over the gardens is definitely a prime spot to enjoy a meal, with our take on the Züri Geschnetzeltes, as popular as ever having been a hit for many years. With kind regards Allan More

We were pushed to sit outside and listen to the "music" which included one of the worst renditions of Leonard Cohen's hallelujah. The food was okay and the presentation was nice but once a group of rowdy Germans settled in next to us the service disappeared. We had to ask for our bill 3 times. We are from North America...

Dear Victorian5, Thank you for your review of our restaurant after you recent visit to Neethlingshof.

After purchasing their excellent MALBEC wine we sat down to a lunch at the Lord Neethlinghof Restaurant. We sat outside under the trees. The setting was perfect just like the meal.

I reviewed this restaurant in May 2015 and my review was titled "Merely average". I was invited again by friends to join them for the buffet and now I will have to change my rating. It is now poor. The setting is still fantastic, the staff friendly, but the standard of the food had now dropped even lower. Limited choice... More
