Description: 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 breakfast here! It seemed that many locals had stopped by for a meal as well – perhaps the real housewives of Cape Town? We were seated in front of the fire, perfect on a rainy day. The menu is extensive and all our food was well prepared – particularly enjoyed the sausage, homemade jams and fresh scones.

Visiting South Africa family took my wife and I here, beautiful to look at Cape Dutch style, In the restaurant service impeccable, friendly, clean and airy, meals delivered hot and served in style. Tastes of Africa in the cuisine as well as other tastes to suit all.

Chose to dine here using the Entertainer voucher scheme. Warm welcome, attentive service, Jack Black on tap and an amazing curry special made for an excellent evening. Really good wine list too. My wife's "difficult" requests were managed without any fuss and I can't recommend this place highly enough.

We were a group of seven people and some had starters and some not. I asked to bring the food out as fast as possible and bring mains when they are ready for those that did not have starters. This was all confused and the one lady that just ordered a soup got her soup first and the boy that... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch with the idea that we would rush off somewhere else for the afternoon...this didn't happen! We settled in very quickly and ended up leaving in the early evening. The ambience and food were great (I love that they have both an A la Carte menu and a generous specials board), with a completely... More

A quick bite turned into a whole day affair. The food was superb. Wines divine. The setting is out of this world. The perfect weather added to just such a great day out. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Very kid friendly and they loved it too. The only draw back was the service. Waitrons unattentive and not as professional as one... More

I went to Jonkershuis with my family to have breakfast. The waitress was very enthusiastic and kind. The food was delicious, I had the french toast with bacon and syrup which I definitely recommend. The coffee was fine but slightly to cold. We sat outside at the terrace in the sun which was perfect. I am planning to come back... More
