A picnic at Buiten is an essential ingredient early in our trips to Cape Town. Lovely bottle of wine, beautiful setting, good staff and nice, simple food.

The food is also delicious, and they have a lovely deli too. The gardens and grounds are so beautiful, we have whiled away many an... More

Lovely surroundings and great atmosphere . Menu varied from cafe type dishes to fine dining style dishes. The food was very good although the dishes tended to be rather complicated. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. In all a most enjoyable experience.

Try to pre-book a picnic at this estate. Lovely setting on the lawn. Tasty variety of food in the pre-booked basket. Watch out for the roaming (harmless) rooster as he loves to pinch food from right under your nose.

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 .
