I think it is a very nice estate with good wines. The wine tasting setup is nice but I just feel like the people behind the counter, pouring the wine, can tell a little more about the wine, farm, grapes etc. They just say the name of the wine and pour it - not the way a tasting should go...

Tokara is such a stunning stop along the wine route; I would recommend it to anyone visiting the cape. The staff is friendly, the wine is great and the art is a plus. Some of the better known South African artists are hanging on the walls... Awesome!!! The building is a beautiful example of contemporary design. The large glass curtain... More

The Tokara was one of the most beautiful wineyards that we have seen during our one day tour. Beside many wines they have also various olive oils you can taste. You can also sit ouside on the terrace while tasting wine and enjoy the beautiful view. The buildings are relative new and have a nice modern design which fit perfectly... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch at the deli. Most mouth watering burger ever. Superb wine with service and atmosphere to match. Had no booking yet we were quickly accommodated. Highly recomended.

We made a brief stop at Tokara’s modern tasting room. Although we did not absolutely love the wines, we did appreciate the free tastings as well as the change to try the brandy. The server was knowledgeable and friendly, making this a nice tasting experience. We have a lot more information about our time wine-tasting in South Africa on our... More

We unfortunately tried Tokara during a weekend. The place was packed and the majority of people were very drunk. We just about managed to find a spot at the tasting bar, but the staff were disorganised and trying to deal with the drunk customers. There was a large amount of glass being broken by people knocking them off the bar.... More

Visited the winery but was very busy so decided to try the deli for lunch, although it was very busy (Saturday lunchtime) the manager couldn't have been more accommodating in finding us a place on the sofa, food was some of the best we had in cape town and excellent wine to wash it down. Highly recommended but probably worth... More

We went to the Tokara restaurant for lunch today and wow, what an experience!!! The view was amazing and the food was the best we have ever had. It was wonderful and we look forward to returning. The restaurant is for the high end market and it had prices to match... although it was worth every penny.

Free tastings including brandy is fantastic. Stunning wines and sensible prices. Avoid weekends when the Stellenbosch students invade though as it gets over-busy.
