“Shocking service and attitude”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was four months ago to be fair, but I've taken it verbatim off the Google Maps review that I did at the time...
"Great views but badly managed expectations....wouldn't even turn the coffee machine on for us (it was 16h05)...clearly they should stick to making wine because they don't know a thing about customer service..."
It's really such a pity they have inept management who clearly don't give a damn...the best they could offer was to make us instant coffee...On the plus side their meat platters are pleasant and the views beautiful. Still haven't been back though - I'm boycotting it on principal as they showed complete disdain to our please for a few cappuccino's....

By pure chance I spent a Friday afternoon at this wonderful wine farm. What spectacular views, you just sit back and happily soak it all in! The wine is lovely, I particularly enjoyed the Three and Saddle, both red wines.

The food is a variety of platters and very yummy they are. We had the cheese and charcuterie platter which was a generous portion with a crispy warm baguette, rooibos jelly, Apple, pear and olives. Since it's such a lovely venue you can take your time enjoying the food, sipping your wine and feeling very content!

The service was efficient and friendly, the sommelier was knowledgable about the wines. I would only have liked the option for something a little sweet, there are no puddings on the menu. A little chocolate something would have been perfect with my excellent espresso.

There are many wine farms in the Cape Town area but I would put this one high up on your list. A must visit.

“Stunning Setting”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Constantia Glen is in a fantastic setting with wonderful views - a bit of a hidden gem. I haven't eaten there, but really enjoyed wine tasting and there are some great wines to choose from. It is up there with Steenberg vineyard and Groot Constantia for me. 3 very different vineyards in completely different settings.
