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

We had lunch at Bistro sixteen82 for the first time and it did not disappoint. The Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc was excellent as was the quality of the meal. Good service and a nicely decorated restaurant. Unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside, but on a summers day you can enjoy your meal on a great terrace with beautiful water... More

Italian tapas menu with no bread offered!!! Recommend for the chef to visit Italy to see that no Italian restaurant will serve any food without the basic bread on table. Our food was mediocre to say the least and service terrible. Dessert arrived 10 minutes after cuppicinos were finished. Definitely not for the discerning!! We have been regulars at 1682... More
