“For that: "Wanna pop in for a quick drink"”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Stumbled upon The Vine about a year ago as the new owners just took over & followed there journey so far...It became one of those places where one just "quickly" want to pop in for a drink & stay just for a while longer...We then fell into their menu...simple but yet, comfy, good food & value for money...3 items on the menu a must...the kudu stroganoff, steak & ribs...So, when after a Friday kicked in, go on, pop in, Karl & Santie is waiting with a drink, waiting just for you...

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

At this restaurant you get the whole package! With the warm welcome you're receive with, you immediately feel at home. The big portions of food are deliciously prepared and is very affordable.
The sparerib is divine and I can really recommend it.
After dining you must join the Stanford locals in the cosy pub to make your visit complete. Visitors and Stanford locals mingle together as if they’ve known each other forever!
Thanks Karl & Santie for the wonderful experience!

“Ridiculously good ribs!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We've been frequenting The Vine since it opened last year, and we can honestly say that, in our opinion, they serve the best ribs in the Overberg! The owners are warm, welcoming and accommodating.
It seems impossible to go for just "a quick one" at the bar as one always tends to run into friendly and familiar faces... the "quick one" inevitably ends up in a very pleasant evening out - often lasting much longer than anticipated or expected. A great place to meet locals and visitors alike.
The restaurant is family friendly with lots of quiet nooks, a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere and a contained play-room for the kiddies. Highly recommended!

“Great food for great value!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

The village of Stanford is like stepping back in time. It has so much character. A visit to the Overberg is not complete without a visit to Stanford and a dinner at the Vine! A quaint little restaurant with a home town vibe and good food for great value. After dinner, slip into the little bar to enjoy conversation with the owner, Karl, and locals -- enjoying fantastic drinks at very reasonable prices. Well done, guys!

“Dinner at the Vine”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

The Vine is a cozy, family orientated restaurant, with different rooms for different guests. You can choose where you would like to sit. If the weather is pleasant you may sit on the front stoep with pretty fairy lights looking onto the quaint village green. There is also a lovely garden at the back with tables under a vine pergola, and a little swimming pool. There is a bar area to watch the rugby, and meals can be served there too. I went with two friends and two children, and we sat at the back. The adults enjoyed Santie's deliciously prepared lamb shank, and we shared a full-bodied Raka Red.The children were very happy to have chocolate milkshakes, and pizza, which was served to them in their own playroom at the back where there are puzzles, coloring in and movies to watch. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the prices reasonable. Definate value for money See you there soon !
