Let's start with the good news : the location is superb, the restaurant terrace overlooking a pond where all kinds of migrating birds are bathing and chitchatting... For the good news that's it!
The place is difficult to find. When finally you get there, be patient and ready to spend more time waiting for the next course than eating the minute portion served on a piece of plain wood for the lamb salad and thankfully on a normal plate for the sliced sirloin with spinach and turnips. It took 45 minutes, from the time we sat, in order to see our 'entrée' in front of us... Then another long wait started for almost an hour for the meat to arrive... Poor organization, probably!

After three months in South Africa, we certainly saved the 'Best till Last'.
Stellenbosch being my most favourite place on earth, we decided to eat at Jordan on our last night. The scenery from the verandah and the total sophistication of the restaurant was everything we expected and didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived it was evident it was going to be a wonderful evening.
Champagne on arrival, always delicious !! The staff were attentive, informative and delightful. The chef's cooked the most mouth watering dishes in front of us to see. Each course was carefully cooked and brought to the table by one of the chef's with a full description of what delights we were soon to enjoy.
We loved it !! and will certainly be going back.
Thank you Jordan, as I said it was a 'Perfect' evening.

An excellent lunch, well recommended "trip-advisor"
The views are fantastic as well, so relaxing and conducive for a long, lazy, boozy lunch!

What a wonderful day we just had.. we drove to a winery near Stellenbosch and had lunch at the most amazing restaurant. The food was incredible, the setting sublime, staff friendly, atmosphere top notch. It's a very rare thing when you have had wonderful meals throughout the world to find this gem so unexpectedly.. For an international foodie.. the price was very reasonable.. I will say nothing more than if you want something special then this is the place to go.. we were so impressed with the chef it was only afterwards we read about his very successful past.. his present is just as impressive...

This was my best meal in South Africa, only Waterkloof came close to what they served us here! Excellent food, great service and nice wine list! Try the Reyneke wines from next door they are Bio Dynamic and super!
