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

Bistro 1682 is a popular lunchtime spot in the Constantia region winelands. Located in the upmarket Steenberg wine estate it features fantastic views of the vineyard and Constantiaberg.

Delicious Breakfasts and beautiful scenery. Try the dish with Brad's Bacon in it - scrumptious! The decor is elegant and tasteful. The staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. There is a little path in the garden facing the restaurant for children to explore but toddlers would need to be supervised. An added benefit is the adjacent tasting room, where you... More

We celebrated a friends birthday one Sunday lunch. On arrival, all 20 of us had to wait around to be helped by 'the powers that be!' We eventually sat ourselves outside as we were not able to order drinks from the beautiful bar at that adorns the entrance. This bar was only for wine tasting. It was empty. We had... More
