Good food - good value

We were seated on the enclosed balcony overlooking the vineyards. The setting is beautiful with lovely historic buildings and a lovely sense of history. We were 4 ladies for lunch and 2 had the fish and chips (hake) and the other had a burger which looked very good. I had the cooked salmon Caesar... read more

What a beautiful setting and restaurant! We were welcomed with a smile by a lovely gentlemen and and the other staff were also very welcoming. The dining was delicious and the flavours absolutely intriguing! However, we were quite rushed by the waitress/hostess to order our mains when we were just enjoying our starters and she came around to the table... More

I loved dining here. They have many local specialties and their wine list features the vineyard's best wines at excellent prices. I highly recommend the springbok! Definitely worth going before sundown so you can enjoy the historic Dutch vineyard atmosphere and views.

This March we went for dinner after having enjoyed two years ago an excellent lunch. Nice seating outside on the patio of the restaurant with white tablecloth prepared tables. Excellent and friendly service who first served us with a chicken breast and a risotto starter. Main course consisted of a very well prepared layered prawn dish. The sommelier recommended their...

We just loved Edgars Vienna Schnitzel and his potatoe salad (his mom's recipe) so much that we went there a couple of times just for the same all-over again. But do not be mistaken, it does not matter if you go for his ceasar salad, any other main course or for his famous chocolate variations. They are all delicious and... More

I was invited to a celebratory luncheon by a business associate. When she said it was at Buitenverwachting I was pleased as I always enjoy going somewhere new. The restaurant and setting did not disappoint at all. The "outdoor" indoor area boasts the most amazing view across the vineyards to the mountains behind, and the tables had been thoughtfully set...

What a difference a decent front of house manager makes. Etienne is back and this great restaurant is back to its best. The quality of food here has never been an issue, but service has often been poor. Since the return of Etienne this great restaurant is back to its best. The location is superb and the menu interesting and... More
