Description: Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern​, ​nature inspired cuisine’, inspired by a focus on our heritage​ as it draws upon​ the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa. ​ The menu ​seeks to​ take diners on a ​gastronomic ​journey, ​touching on points of nostalgia paired with an expertly crafted local and international wine list, artisanal cocktail, craft beer and a notable selection of single malt whiskeys. Herbs and a selection of vegetables on the menu are grown in the Estate's self sustained heirloom garden. The restaurant is set to establish itself as a premier fine dining destination locally and internationally and is now open for lunch and dinner 4 days a week, Wednesday through Saturday for relaxed, generous Bistro lunch and Fine-Dining Dinner and Sunday Fine-Dining Lunch.

The food and service was one of the best I have experienced in and around Stellenbosch. Definitely one of my new favourite restaurants.

“Wine tasting ”

The venue is beautiful, the wines are really good. We had a walk in the gallery which showcases some really interesting works of art.

“Understated elegance”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This is my second time at this wonderful restaurant. I loved the chicken chowder starter. Was so different to what one would expect. Chicken main was awesome. I just love the setting, ambiance, awesome service and casual elegance. It is a must on ones restaurant bucket list.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We loved the estate and the restaurant. The architecture is truly magnificent and you can see the place was not done on a budget. The lunch menu is short and simple, but the food was delicious and excellent value for money. We will definitely visit again, maybe next time to try out the more elaborate dinner menu.

The only critisism is that they don't have any fruit juice on the menu.
