Our second stop today was in this rather informal place. Entering the tasting room we walked to the bar. The lady behind the counter was busy doing all sorts. The best thing of this place is you just tell them what you would like to tast and they will pore you a glas. The information was not given very willingly.... More

Visited the vineyard with our children but they were made to feel as welcome as anyone and it made us feel welcome too We sat out in the lovely gardens and the boys played rugby whilst we sipped some of the lovely wines in the sun A great vineyard and well worth the trip out

We had picnic twice at Buitenverwachting during our stay in South Africa in March 2014. We loved the first one so much we made sure to come back before leaving (and after having picniced at 3 other places in the meantime). The venue is perfect when you are a family with a toddler - just spread your blanket next to... More

This used to be one of our favourite restaurants in the area. Regrettably, this year I was not very impressed. There was a wedding party on and so we were put in the back room. The food was good in parts but disappointing in others. The schnitzel was particularly dull (I have had it there before and it was much... More

After about ten turns along narrow lanes once turning off Klein Constantia Road, in pouring rain, we finally reached the wine tasting at Buitenverwachting. Beautiful grounds and buildings complete with two lovely hostesses; a black lab and a ridgeback named Bella. Nice selection of wines, nice courtyard with outdoor seating, well-appointed interior. A great place to meet up with friends... More

It's always a pleasure spending a few hours under the trees enjoying food & wine at Buitenverwachting, with initially neighbours from the UK & then with the family of a DE & her family. The food & setting are idyllic & the menu has definitely improved since last year. In particular the coffee from the deli is very good indeed.... More

We have been to Buitenverwachting for years and although it has never reached the heights of our favourite, La Colombe, the food has always been excellent, particularly when enjoyed with a glass of their gorgeous Christine. However it has always been a little Germanic for our taste, very efficient and good but lacking in passion. So even nearing that in... More

Fabulous dining experience, especially the 4/5 course set meal with selected wines. The ambiance created and experienced was great and watching the sunset was awsome.

5 of us met here for a picnic lunch. I have been wine tasting here before but never had the picnic. We sat under the trees on a beautiful late summer's day, looking over to Table Mountain. The food was excellent and large portions. We had a couple of bottles of Sauvignon Blanc to accompany our food, but all their... More

A must for anybody wishing to try something different. A picnic lunch is taken under the trees in beautiful gardens with large spaces between the tables. The quantity and quality of food is exceptional for the price and the service was excellent. Wide list of reasonably price wine available to make this a perfect place.
