My wife and I visited this wonderful establishment for lunch today. Guests are seated at shady tables spread around a large lawn in the centre of which is a huge Norfolk pine. The food is delivered to your table in picnic hampers. The first joy is searching through the hampers to discover the delicacies inside. Pate, fresh bread, cold meats,... More

You can taste about 18 wines for R40 which is great value for money. The ambience is great and the tasting centre relaxed. The tasting is "self service" in that you have to refill your own glass at the counter - not the worst thing if you have time and are relaxed. Would then suggest that the space on front... More

I visited on a blistering hot day and enjoyed sipping some very fine wine on the shady lawn. It was very busy but the service (for what I wanted) was very good. Very nice bunch of wine makers. The wine ranges from very good to insanely excellent. I went with my son (8) and he got a bit bored, so... More

We returned to Buitenverwachting for a wine tasting. This was our 3rd time at the winery and the experience remains one of the best in the Constantia Valley. The farm, is understated and relaxed. The tasting room gets a great buzz with families, friends and wine enthusiasts tasting and sharing a wonderful experience. The tasting room offers communal seating with... More

We enjoyed an afternoon picnic at Buitenverwachting with family, and could not have asked for more. When we arrived the hostess said "if you don't like it you don't pay" jokingly, as I don't think it is necessarily policy. The truth was we had a great time and enjoyed it very much. Surroundings are beautiful and the atmosphere is very... More

What a wonderful setting...under the trees, surrounded by vines, delicious food and wines. Not too busy on the lawns so felt like had loads of space. For R150 is good value for the food. Best being R80 über from Hout Bay so very close proximity to the city rather than driving all the way to Stellenbosch.

Buitenverwachting (good luck pronouncing this) is very easy to find and is a very nice short trip from Cape town city center. The wine was good but the best part of this visit was having a pic nic in their garden. They provide everything: table, chairs, basket full of South African food, coffee/tea. Be ready to take your shoes off... More

For years now we have been going to Buitenverwachting for their picnics. The past 2 years we had to skip as it only opens in November and we were visiting in October. Because of that we were really looking forward to it. Once again it was lovely!! The setting is beautiful, like being transformed to another world. The seating on... More

Traveling through the Cape Wine Regions is a beautiful drive and fun with stops a Gros Constacia, Buitenweracting, Somerset. When visiting Cape Town I highly recommend a wine tasting tour of the Cape.
