Description: Nestled between mature gardens on the beautiful D'Aria Wine Farm, Poplars Restaurant is housed in a heritage Cape Dutch Farmhouse, one of the oldest in the Durbanville Wine Valley. The elegantly decorated rooms provide for intimate but relaxed winter evenings in front of the many open fires. The large shaded garden provides an idyllic spot to wine away lazy summer days, whilst sharing charcuterie and mezze boards. The Italian inspired menu caters to a wide range of tastes that is complimented by award winning wines from the winery and surrounding area. Both the 'Backyard' (braai area) and Bar are popular with locals in the evenings, with a live music a weekly occurrence. Only 30 minutes from both Cape Town city centre and the International airport, Poplars is the ideal escape for conferences, corporate events and private events, including weddings. The restaurant is open daily from 10am for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I would like to compliment Mthetwa (not sure of the spelling) for his great service last evening! We sat in the area by the fireplace and watched the soccer. Lovely atmosphere and the soup was delicious!

On 24.06.2028 my daughter booked a table for 5 for 12h30. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. We ordered wine and food from the menu. The first and second bottle we ordered was out of stock. The waiter suggested a pork dish. That was also not available. Then we ordered a chicken dish that also was not available as they had no chicken. We then ordered prawns which they also did not have. There were also no tomatoes for the salad. This is in my opinion very poor service. The dishes that was available was very tasty and well prepared.
