We were a table of seven on the 17th August. I ordered the roast chicken which was very grey when it arrived and was not edible. I picked at it not to cause a stir with my guests. I was violently till on Sunday night through to Tuesday morning, having to call the doctor for a house visit. I wrote... More

We had lunch there recently; 2 good meals, one boring, one really disappointing ... 3 tiny pieces of fish and a zigzag of sauces. No veg, nothing else. As host it was extremely embarrassing - I would never risk taking business associates there again. Slow service too; slow arrival of food, sloooow removal of plates, waited ages to be offered...

We ate at Bistro Sixteen82 yesterday and we were all very impressed. I had the fillet steak. It was grilled exactly as I requested and it looked beautiful. The taste was even better. The garnish complimented the taste and it was perfect! With the streak I got a marrow ball deep fried... Just what the LCHF dieter needs!!! The setting... More

With a beautiful setting above the Steenberg Vineyards, a stylish, modern interior which includes restaurant and wine-bar and a tasting lounge, Bistro 1682 is a treat. Not an inexpensive venue, and not a huge menu - and all the better for it because whatever comes out of the kitchen is really well done. The Beef Tataki, Cream of Potato Soup... More

We were a family of four and went on a Saturday after doing the excellent wine tasting. We came hungry, so we ordered a variety of food. The food is good and the service good. But do not come here if you are on a budget, it is quite expensive. Important to book in advance.

This is a lovely bistro on Steenberg estate, when we went there on Friday, it was crowded - suggest you always book in advance. The food is excellent, best Wagyu beef burger ever (served with Parmesan shoestring fries)! Excellent service, great atmosphere. One of the best options in the Constantia wine area.

It was a typical winter afternoon in the mother city & the drive to the Bistro 1682 had already warmed me up. On entering the inner space the atmosphere and vibe was what was needed for the cold - warm & welcoming. The food was excellent although a little late but the service, ambience & the ever pleasing staff more... More

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to visit Bistro 1682. The entire experience from beginning to end was superb. Solid service, beautiful food and a design that is second to none. Will be back!!
