The restaurant is nice and airy, the staff efficient and friendly and the food was superb. We have been going there for years and never yet been disappointed!

Step through Newlands into the ultimate wine bar! Awesome ambience with spectacular views of the mountain. My family is so impressed, time and time again, with the personal attention we receive from management and staff. My girls (6yrs and 7yrs) love the "Fire Room" which they view as their own personal domain and the staff are engaging and friendly. Simple... More

Great little place for a glass of wine, they have a sweet outside area with a gorgeous view. Also a great place in winter as there are nice retro couches and low tables for a quick drink after work!

I was fortunate enough to be invited to this beautifully decorated restaurant in Newlands by a good friend of mine. The four of us tucked in to our meals, each of us very happy with the flavour and presentation. The menu has a good variety and there is a great selection of side orders. The wine list is... daunting, but... More

Wijnhuis Newlands is a great place for a solid meal. I enjoyed the variety of wines available by the glass and different size options ie. from 150ml to a carafe of 370ml. We started with two carpaccios - the Kudu and Beef carpaccio. Both were excellent. The 400g Rump that I had for my main course was also very good... More

I am absolutely devastated with the revamped decor. Wijnhuis has been my favorite restaurant for many years and I have always made a point of bringing overseas visitors for a meal here, and they too shared my delight with the decor, food, service and general ambiance. Why the change?! (Surely it was a winning recipe?) The menu is now a... More

After hearing this restaurant was so great, we were disappointed not only in the service but also that the prices did not justify the meals received. I don't think we would return in a hurry.

We came here for a family party so tended not to concentrate on the food but I had kingclip which was good. Pity about the big TV screens but I guess that's good for footy enthusiasts. A fun place and quite buzzy
