“Will Never Return !!!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Along with family and international guests, I visited the Restaurant after we failed to get a reservation at a nearby restaurant at such short notice. I was expecting great food and atmosphere after reading previous reviews here on trip advisor but the food my company and I ordered was, to say the least, poor. The service was acceptable and the setting was amazing but the food we ordered was not up to standard, I ordered the Sirloin Steak with Pepper Sauce cooked medium-rare but when it arrived it was close to well-done, the potato wedges it was served with were soggy and tasted like they were bought frozen from a supermarket and then cooked in a microwave and then there was the pepper sauce which was absolutely disgusting,I must add that it was served cold and tasted watered down ( Spur Steakranch's sauce is 100% better) A few guests ordered from the Sunday Buffett which they found to be acceptable. I must say that I will never return to Neetlingshof Estate and I will most certainly not recommend it as a place for people to go to for a meal.

“One of the worst service experiences we had in a very long time.”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We arrived for their live music wednesdays, the lady informed us that there was no tables available even though we did phone earlier and she said we don't have to book! She said she will see if she can move a table from the inside to the outside section for us...after about 15min standing around she mentioned very abruptly that there are no tables, turned around and left us standing there...she continued with what she was busy with and ignored us. Very confused we decided to leave. This experience left me with a very bad impression of the place, and we will probably never return!

“What a Treat”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

You cannot go to the wine regions of SA without going to the vineyards. Excellent choice for the simple fact that they produce the wine of SA, Pinotage!. Spent a couple of hours with a trip round the process plant including a full expert presentation. Finishing off with a wine tasting session of over 5 wines, red, white and dessert. Thank you for a great experience and a new learning curve. Nice day in a wonderful region.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We visited this winery during a day trip from Cape Town. The grounds are absolutely stunning and worthy of a visit on their own. Because the winery knew we were coming we were shown to a beautifully set out table inclusive of matching wine glasses applicable to the wines, bread sticks to cleanse the palate, of course water and everybody had their own personal "slops" bucket. The young man attending us was very knowledgeable with his wines and more than generous with additional tastings. A lovely day.

“Impressive driveway”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Driving down the tree lined avenue of stone pines to the old manor house which is stunning prepares you for an afternoon, or morning, of wine extravaganza. Several areas to wine and dine all very lovely. Some stunning gardens to admire and lots of outside seating as well as indoors. The wine tasting was a little slow and although the weather was gorgeous and we were enjoying the sunshine the tasting needed to be a little more fluid - pardon the pun! Very knowledgeable wine waiter and very pleasant. Wine wasn't bad either.
