It was the first really sunny day in Cape Town after a long winter. We decided to have lunch at the restaurant at the Hillcrest Wine Estate and also have a taste of their 2014 Sauvignon Blanc. We were fortunate to have booked, because the restaurant was packed. We ordered some wine and my friend also ordered a Weiss beer, which was very good. Later we met the winemaker, Graham, and found out that he is also now a beermaker ! That explained the Weiss on tap. We ordered the food, and were served quite promptly. Delene ( the owners) chicken pie is worth a taste. The other food also looked and tasted good. The setting is fantastic, and the views over the mountain towards the sea is beautiful. A real recommendation!

The views are almost the best, overlooking blouberg from the top.
The menu is wide enough providing a good selection to cater for everyone's needs.

Certainly once finished, to pop into the wine cellar next door too. Their Merlot is a Gold Winner after all, and for a number of years voted the best in SA.

This was a great find! There's so many restaurants in the winelands but this one really stands out. The food is always fantastic, the service is perfect and the wine is stunning! We've never had a bad meal here and look forward to coming back soon!

You must visit this little jewel of a wine farm in Durbanville. Lovely olives, and wines. They have lovely views from their stoep all the way to Blouberg. Their food is very tasty and you have to have their signature stone bread!
