Jonkershuis Constantia is nestled in the historic core of the Groot Constantia Wine Estate next to the historic Manor House and surrounded by ancient oak trees. Your first impression is dominated by sweeping views across the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, down the valley to the enveloping coastline of False Bay. This family owned and managed bistro boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining, to typical Italian village gatherings in their vine covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, were children can safely play reminiscent of a bygone era.. Partner Chris Coetzee, a father of two energetic young sons says, "Our close proximity and strong association with Iziko Museums is very important to me, it is a privilege for my children to be raised surrounded by so much of their heritage." The rich cultural history of Jonkershuis lends a magical and old world charm to any occasion held at the beautiful Jonkershuis. Tammy Botbyl (partner), "The strong legacy of history and tradition has inspired many couples to share their vows here and celebrate their union in style. It is a privilege for us to be part of the beginning of so many new legacies."

Had a great meal while visiting the winery. The restaurant was actually one of the high points of the visit. Menu is great and varied, slightly expensive (but that is expected given the location), and of course the wines are fabulous! Service was relatively slow. Dinner at this restaurant would be a fine, sit-down affair. Would love to go someday.

As a local we often pop up to Jonkershuis for tea and scones I the middle of the morning. It is such a relaxing experience and we always feel like we are on holiday. The service is always friendly ad. We love sitting under the oak trees looking at False Bay. We have also done breakfast there, which is always... More

The restaurant is on a historic wine farm at Groot Constantia. I had a lamb curry which was tasty but was a very small portion and I would have preferred it a bit hotter. I did not eat the rosti , naan bread and rice as I am avoiding too much carbohydrate. My companion had the fish (dorado) which was... More

We have been a number of times to Jonkershuis and each time has been a great experience! We have been sitting outside and it was great with kids as they can play outside and be easily overseen.

Having friends visiting from Gauteng, we decided to have lunch at Jonkershuis. It was warm and bustling on a Monday. Service was great. Food was tasty and fulfilling.

We came here on a cold, wet day and found heaven! The setting was perfect, the lunch delicious, wine fantastic and the service was great. I had the bruschetta and Cape Malay chicken curry - good sized serves (feeling full at the end and for many hours later!) and both were full of flavour. I highly recommend this restaurant -... More

The fact that this restaurant has a beautiful setting goes without saying. The food is great, made using plenty of super fresh ingredients. I had the butternut soup (with a dash of coconut milk and seed roll) to start - rich but fresh and nutritious. I chose the charcuterie for my main dish, and the cold meat paired with homemade...

Again, a place for locals and travelers. A menu where everybody will find something to enjoy. We were well treated by friendly staff and the food was very good. And outside you will have a phantasmic view of the Cape Flats (day and night).

This restaurant has a beautiful setting and we sat under the massive oak trees and took in the stunning view. I had the Cape Malay tasting plate which consists of a lamb curry, chicken curry and bobotie and there was alot of love in the food and I enjoyed every bite. and would definitely recommend it.

What a gem to find close to home! Just arriving in the nick of time before the Sunday lunch crowd arrived, we settled down to a magnificent snoek pate with jam accompanying starter followed delicious kob cooked to perfection! Lots of other tantalising items on the menu that we wish to try on a future visit.
