This restaurant is a stalwart in Stellenbosch and the atmosphere and food never disappoint. Warm and friendly service and good authentic Italian dishes. The aubergine dishes are always good and if you have time and are hungry the whole baby chicken al forno is excellent.

My first experience here was very unpleasant. We had a large table, the service was very slow and the food took very long. I had chicken and it was covered in butter that leaked all over the chips as well. I remember thinking I should not go back, but after a few months I decided to give it another try... More

I am not a big Italian food fan (sorry Italian fans!) but I did enjoy the pasta al forno. It was tasty enough and not too filling. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Was great - then they had a 3 years enforced break due to building , then tried to rejuvenate the place - the place is not what it used to be - atmosphere sterile and no vibe - pity as I used to love the place - advice : if it works, don't fix it !

I am for the umpteenth time totally disappointed in the quality of food served at this expensive restaurant. The ravioli was clearly only thawed from the freezer and cover with sauce. The salmon my partner ordered was overprized for a single thinly sliced piece and the pizza we ordered was hardly worth more than a thawed pizza from the microwave.... More

My wife and I went last night on a visit to S'bosch. The restaurant itself is a beautiful set out place and you feel very warm when entering as the staff are extremely friendly. The food was of a good quality but a little pricey for what you get. In Cape Town you can get similar food at similar establishments... More

I had dinner there a couple of times. The food is always good and there is always available parking nearby. However unless you are having wine, their other choices of drinks are quite limited.

After one of Stellenbosch's Street Soiree's we decided to head just across the street to De Cameron. We were lucky enough to get a table outside which was perfect as on a hot summers evening in Stellenbosch all you want to do is sit outside and enjoy good food and wine. Their menu has a wide variety of dishes which... More

We ate here on our last night in Stellenbosch and were very disappointed. The cannelloni was poor at best and the manager was not interested when we complained. We would not go back.
