Unfortunately I was disappointed by this restaurant. I made a booking, but when I got to the venue, realised I had mistakenly made it for the following week. However there were a tables places open, but we were placed closest to the kitchen and furthest from the "nice" tables outside, while there were at least two table consistently open throughout...

We dined here on two occasions, both excellent. I think we tried most dishes over the two evenings, the beef was our favourite! The waiters were charming, recommending wines to taste. The grounds are beautifully designed, we called in during the afternoon too & it was buzzing with people having tastings. Would certainly return.

Myself and three girlfriends went to Bistro 1682 over the weekend. Our waiter (Jethro) was outstanding and he recommended great dishes. The service at the wine tasting room was also just outstanding.

Went here with a group of friends, and had such a delicious meal. Every dish was so tasty, loved the sliders and the pork belly.... Take me back! Great buzzy atmosphere and lovely chic interior design. Beautiful location. Great for meals with friends or a romantic night out. Highly recommended as part of your Constantia wine route tour!!

To dine on top of a pond next to the winery with awesome views of the mountain and Cape Town? Enough said.

I love my wine and the wine tasting was included as part of our time staying at the Steenberg. They offer a fabulous and fascinating selection of wines, delivered by their sommelier who was friendly and knowledgeable. The setting is sublime and wished we had more time to enjoy the atmosphere. We followed this by the tapas and enjoyed it... More

Visited this venue a couple of times and was never disappointed. Upmarket Bistro with lovely outside seating if the weather permits. Lovely food (and oysters) with good wine list and they offer wine tastings. Little bit more expensive than the average Bistro but definitely worth it. Go see!

Located on a working wine estate in the Constantia valley, this restaurant's beautiful setting is set off by spare modern decor that is probably at its best in the summer but is still surprisingly cosy on a winter's day. High demand for reservations means booking weeks in advance, but the wait is worth it. The food is superb, elegantly presented,... More
