We recently dined here as a party of six. Our meal was outstanding. Each of our courses consisted of foods with the most delicate flavours. It was all about quality food with friendly and attentive staff in attendance. The setting is wonderful, a colonial style building with great views across the winery. While the inside area is excellent I recommend... More

We booked atablke for 6:30pm but didnt realise that this is when the restaurent opens so we were the first ones there and were let in at 6:30pm. That was the only blemish on a great evening. The food and the service was excellent and we ate far too much as there a chef's 'extras' between courses and the warm... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this stunning location! Wine was amazing, food was tasty and beautifully presented...and service was spot on. You cannot beat Buitenverwachting for a perfect 'vineyard' lunch experience - and the added bonus of being so close to the city!

Even though this restaurant is part of a historic wine estate with traditional Cape Dutch architecture, its decor has almost a zen aesthetic. The food is absolutely first rate. Blesbock entree was succulent. Starter of Layered Pepper, Aubergine, Zucchini, Tomato & creamy Feta - divine. Flawless service. We will visit again.

Attentive service, spoiled with repeated ames bouches, well presented and delicious - that sums it up. Very relaxed yet cultivated ambience. We lunched on the patio and every dish and every course was just perfect.

You can write a lot to describe this place. But you have to see for yourself and you will agree that the views are magnificent. The food is excellent. If you need to make a comment it might be the menu which could be with a bit more choices.

There was absolutely nothing on which this restaurant could be faulted. All our choices from the menu were interesting, beautifully presented and high quality. The service was outstanding. The setting is beautiful and it's conveniently situated close to Cape Town. Prices compare favourably against international standards. I highly recommend this for visitors to Cape Town who don't want to drive... More

We had a slow 4 hour lunch allowing us plenty of time to chat and make the most of this place. All 4 of us found the food excellent and their wines made a perfect accompaniment. We never felt rushed even though we were the last ones there. Definitely worth a visit.
