“Saturday lunch”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Meerendal has become the place cycle. it is very popular with mountain bikers and then there is lunch.
The Crown restaurant's decor is eclectic, quant and modern together and creates a great space with a fire place for the colder days.Outside there is a place for the children to play and a giant jumping castle.
We had a glass of the Meerendal Sauvignon Blanc wich went well with the snoek pie and pork belly. The snoek pie was extremely tasty but the pork belly lacked seasoning., The chicken supreme with bacon and mushroom mousse was a better call. The menu is small but has something for everyone's taste

“Meerendal”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Set in the beautiful wine region of Durbanville , this is a nice stop for a bite to eat. beautiful setting overlooking vineyards and green lawns. Went there for breakfast and was delighted with the great service and quality of the food. The health breakfast was really great and was more than enough for one person. Great great coffee. No rush from waiters what so ever to get you moving after you had your meal, thus is this a great place for just chilling on a Saturday morning.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

I visited this restaurant to check out the food, the service and setting before booking the business lunch. The menu is small but the quality is superb. I had to change the date and time to suit my business associates a number of times and the management were always very accommodating. We had a wonderful time, the food, wine, atmosphere and service was excellent and we were not rushed by our waiter. Its a place you can take the family and freinds for a worthwile outing. If you are a mountain biker they have a fabulous trail which you can ride. All in all a place to linger if you so wish. The Pinotage is a great tasting wine if you like Red wines

“Great Saturday Afternoon”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had a good lunch there with some good Pinotage, cheese & meat platter. We also did the wooded and unwooded Chardonnay tasting which was really good. Setting and service from Lauren was attentive but not obtrusive.

“Food and ervice was excellent”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We had our end of year business function lunch at Meerendal. When we booked we sent the menu and asked to inform them what we would like to have for lunch. All 26 of us had different starters, main meals and dessert. When we arrived were warmly welcomed and were seated outside, under some shade,which was great as it was a hot summer's day.
Within minutes our drinks order arrived (we ordered drinks when we arrived, not beforehand such as with the food).
Not long after that our startes arrived. After the starters were served we were asked when we would like the main meal. The main meals arrived within miutes of when we indicated that we were ready, the same happened for the dessert as well.
Besides the great food and service the atmosphere was very relaxing and friendly.
