Having been recommended this vineyard due to the quality of the wines, unfortunately this trip was disappointing. The wines were pretty average and were accompanied by some fairly obnoxious behaviour from some other guests.

We were a large group of 16 people and we were honored that the same vineyard owner gave us a tour of the winery and cellar , we were tasting wines which are excellent and understood the history of the place and the family . It was a great experience and the place well worth a visit .

A very good meal but over attentive service to the point of constantly interrupting the conversation between myself and my companion. Whilst we arrived unannounced, and the restaurant squeezed us in, there was no effort to help us during the hour we waited (e.g. with drinks or call us by mobile when ready).

When it came to finding a venue for my partner's mom's surprise 70th birthday party, a picnic buffet at Buitenverwachting made good sense for a group of 20-odd people who ranged in age and eating preferences. I did the organising from overseas and Adrienne, who runs the picnics, couldn't have been more helpful with the arrangements. We were a bit... More

Today we arrived two minutes after closing time and asked for a tasting, but just got turned around coldly. There were many other people still being served and I'm sure some of then had just started their tasting. I asked if we maybe can just have three wines, but it was like I was talking to a door. If we... More

Every time my wife and I visit Cape Town it has become compulsory that we spend an afternoon at Buitenverwachting with one of their fantastic picnic baskets. The setting is gorgeous, the food in the baskets excellent and plentiful, the service is first class and the wine eminently quaffable. I would like to say a big thank you to the... More

What a lovely setting, great service, but in general relaxed and not pretentious. This coming from a wine estate that could boast some of the best whites I have tasted on this visit to the Cape. The Chardonnay is excellent! Great picnic basket had on the lawns and service staff friendly and professional, yet relaxed not over the top. We... More

A great and most enjoyable experience visiting this wine farm. My wife and I shared the caesar salad which was the chefs own recipe which was really good and sufficient for both of us. We order a bottle of their Blanc de Noir which was only R45 and most enjoyable. The waitress that served us was really friendly and helpful.The... More
