I was first introduced to Bistro 1682 about 2 years ago. This was when they still had the churro's on the menu with the most amazing chocolate sauce (PLEASE bring those back!). I have been watching closely as the new Chef Kerry has taken over (from Brad Ball) as of 3rd November, and thus hauled my bridesmaids there with me... More

We were very positively surprised with the new menu on offer. For the last few years we have given the Birstro a miss as the menu was too fancy for our taste. Today we went to the winery to buy some cases of wine and had a look at the new menu and decided to stay for lunch. It was... More

We had flown in that same day from England and Bistro Sixteen82 was to be our first experience of dining in South Africa. The table was booked for 7pm and we were looking forward to the Tapas choice with a nice bottle of estate Sauvignon Blanc. We were not disappointed. The easy, laid back ambience suited our need to relax... More

The restaurant has a casual, but chic atmosphere - my friend and I arrived at 12.00pm but by 1.00pm the restaurant was full. Tables are not too close, so one can speak in private, yet there is an intimate "vibe". Service was prompt and efficient. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and of a high standard. I will definitely... More

This is a beautiful venue. Sadly the recent lunch did not cut the mustard. FOOD - I understand that food prices have gone up, and am OK with paying slightly higher prices for outstanding food. When prices are outrageous for tiny portions which are not cooked particularly well, I get irked. I was with guests, so I could not and... More

We have eaten lunch here a few times in the past and always enjoyed the food and service. On this occasion we ate inside due to the weather. All tables bar one were taken and the place had a nice vibe. We were in one of the tables in the middle of the restauwhich had hard seats, not very comfortable,... More

Rushing around the entire Sunday knowing there is a flight to catch back to reality we stumbled across the Bistro in Steenberg, rushed for time but puckish and wanting a little wine.... The waiters were so helpful and understood our rush albeit the place being quiet busy for a late Sunday afternoon, they seated the group and within a few... More

However a couple of weeks ago for lunch I found the menu limiting and has become very expensive.My friend ordered 2 starter portions one was muscles only 6 and one was not... More

We always wanted to go to Steenberg as it is one of the not-to-be-missed places in many of the Cape winebooks. Arriving at Steenberg we sat down at the counter, wanting to taste and order wine and snacks. We sat there for nearly ten minutes. There were 3 staff members behind the counter. One was serving customers and the other... More

We were delighted and spread our blanket on their superb lawn, enjoying our wine, mountain views and people watching happy diners in their restaurant. however, the picnic... More
