Popped in for a late lunch. It's like a deli with tables and chairs. It's not fine dining but it did the job. We had the soup and chicken sandwich. Both tasty. My only issue is the coffee. We've found this almost everywhere we've been so it is not unique to the Wild Peacock. Too much milk, served at too... More

popped into this venue for a quick lunch, had a cappuccino and salad. Over priced and the cappuccino was a bit milky. There are better places to have lunch.

I am very disappointed with the Wild Peacock. Had possibly the worst cheesecake and cappuccino I have ever had. The coffee was very watery and the cheesecake completely tasteless. For what I paid, it was not worth it - very over priced.

Our food was bland and definately overpriced, but the service was friendly. I ordered the fish cakes which were too moist and bland the salad only comes with olive oil and balsamic dressing. The owner was not there not surprising. They did have a nice variety of imported products- meats etc

We recently went to Stellenbosch for Sunday breakfast. We had a few possible restaurants on our list, but chose Wild Peacock restaurant because it was in a quiet setting, away from the main tourist spots. Tasty, freshly prepared food. Friendly staff and Fantastic Americano. Good family restaurant with seating in and outside. Interesting delicacies for sale in the shop. Good... More

We thought it would be nice to have breakfast here for Valentines Day morning, but were greatly disappointed by the poor service and lack of items on the menu. There were only 4 other occupied tables, yet we had to hunt down a waitress just to see a menu. We arrived and waited for 5 minutes at the entrance for... More

Having really liked lunch at a table outside this deli on a previous visit to Stellenbosch we were looking forward to returning. We were not disappointed. Wild Peacock is the retail outlet of a fine food and wine business. The menu is on a black board and offers a variety of starters or small plates and then a number of... More

Heard some good things about this little place but was a bit disappointed how average it was. If a sticky dirty plastic table cloth( the kind you don't want to put your elbows on) and burnt coffee does not put you off, then I suppose it will be fine. The interior is outdated and dark and in desperate need of... More

As usual we found the place on TripAdvisor and had a very good lunch. The place is very interesting, being primarily a shop, which serves its produce for lunch. The wine list is extensive. They had a good range of daily specials and we shared the crispy squid for a starter. I had the steak wrap and Irene the salmon,... More

Apart from being the best food emporium around Stellenbosch with most delicacies you would need for a grand dinner party, this establishment also offers a selection of interesting meals. The breakfast today was excellent, the omelette was packed full with ham, feta and a hint of chili and my perfectly cooked poached eggs on toast and bacon on the side... More
