Friday afternoon simply my best after a long stressful morning job and stressful afternoon job four afternoons. I arrive at an awesome wine farm to be welcomed by a vibrant well informed young lady. A wine farm to be highly recommended in Constantia.

This venue holds special memories for me. The wines are stunning and the scenery is second to none. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are willing to spend time advising guests. Altogether, a delight.

A very different experience to the last time we were here, many years ago- the staff are friendly, informative and eager to please. If you plan to doing some wine tasting in the Constantia area, then Buitenverwachting is a must stop! Not only are their wines enough of a reason to visit, but we pre-booked a picnic so that after...

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
