Great day out with family from overseas. Staff were more than competent and informative and a great day was had by all, not sure how much the wine had to do with that but very pleasant indeed.

We had a wonderful lunch on the cool verandah on a very hot day. Great to take your visitors there and they have a lovely wine tasting, cheese tasting deli shop. Worth a visit.

We absolutely love going to Fairview - it is a beautiful location, the goat tower is an all-time favourite of family and friends who come to visit. And the cheese and wine tasting is always a welcome experience. However, this time around I was not impressed with the restaurant. Staff, as always, very friendly and helpful but the place was...

I have visited plenty wine estates and tastings in the Winelands, and recently visited Somerset West with some friends from the UK. We chose Fairview because of the cheese pairing. We were very impressed. The place is a little off the beaten track but very worth it. The experience costed R75 which is roughly £3.50 pp. The cheese and wine... More

The staff was friendly and they explained a lot about the 8 wines you will taste. The cheeses that come with the tasting where great. The wine tasting is inside together with 8 other tables or so. I would love to go there again

We took a drive out of the city and ended up at Fairview. This is a beautiful venue in a relaxing setting. Delicious cheeses and friendly staff. Well worth visiting!

I come here often and generally order the same thing. Sparkling wine, pate starter as a main, and the cheese platter for desert. Always a pleasure for a tipsy slow afternoon.
