“An awesome find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Had a fantastic meal here on Saturday night with my husband and his parents. We had called the day before and they were able to reserve us a table at 6pm and by 7pm the restaurant was packed so I recommend booking! The waiters were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the wine, giving suggestions. All four us thoroughly enjoyed our food, the steaks were amazing. We had three courses, wine and coffees and we were pleasantly surprised when the bill came, it was incredibly good value for money considering the standard of the food and the service. We were not rushed through our meal at all, despite booking last minute on a busy night and we were there for 2 and a half hours! We will definitely be back!!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Great service, good wine and amazing food. I had the lamb shank and it was out of this world! My sister said her steak was one of the best she had ever had. The calamari starter was also outstanding. All in all it was one of the best meals of our month in SA.
I highly recommend it to all readers.

“Great meal in Stellenbosch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Oppie Dorp. We had dinner here after an afternoon of wine tasting in the region. My husband raved about the lamb and my venison was some of the best I've had. We started with the calamari which was deliciously fresh. They also have a very nice wine list, including a nice selection of local wines, which is what we wanted. Great service, fantastic meal. Thanks to Antoinette at Camino Tours for the recommendation and booking!

“Consistently good food and service - always a pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is our favourite eating place in Stellenbosch at the moment. Small menu but still something for everyone. Always good food - we have had many meals there with friends. Attention to detail without being fussy. Chilled atmosphere. Although it is a smallish place (yes, you must book), one never feels rushed.

“Calamari Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Having booked late and told that they would accommodate two of us we were overjoyed. The calamari was too die for and the evening special of Tuna was very good. My partners shoulder of lamb was also very tasty. The over zealous waitress was a bit irritating initially, but after telling her our needs about a peaceful quit evening everything turned out great!
