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."

An exquisite experience in the most beautiful environment. Grilled rump was just the best, paired with vineyards own cabernet - almost perfect.

Jonkershuis at Groot Constantia is a very special place for us to where we always return being in Capetown. We enjoy the atmosphere, the view, the excellent wines and the usually very good food. The staff is not too professional but always willing and very attentive. We had one smaller problem with very well done Kudu madaillons once, but that... More

I've had my fair share of overpriced Cape Town winefarm restaurants, but this place was amazing. We all opted for traditional Cape Malay food and it was very tasty (and the portions were quite big!). It is also reasonably priced and located at a nice venue. Originally I booked outside, but because it was cold and windy they had no... More

What a lovely friendly place to chill with friends and family. Breathtaking views and lovely walks in one of our most picturesque wine farms. Please improve the food. Please.

I had lunch here with friends on a hot, windy day. I tried to find some shade but there isn't any and the umbrellas can't be unfurled because of the wind. I left looking like a tomato! My fault for not wearing a hat and sunscreen...but they could have/should have been more helpful moving tables into the shade and providing... More

After searching for a new breakfast spot online and going through some reviews, my fiancé and I visited Jonkerhuis to celebrate our three year anniversary and we were definitely not sorry! What a lovely little gem, tucked away in the Constantia winelands. Friendly, efficient service with not a hint of pretentiousness, lush green lawns overlooking picturesque views.We were fortunate enough... More

We visited Jonkershuis several years ago and were really keen to revisit. The staff may have changed somewhat, but the food, service, ambience remain the same. Great night out

The best cheesecake in town [in my opinion] and a kid friendly venue with outside seating and trees/umbrellas to shade your table area. With vineyard and mountain views. In winter inside is nice and cosy, with the fire place going. The food isnt bad either. I've tried the prawn curry, chicken salad and a yellow-tail fish dish. Love that they... More

A fantastic setting with one of the most tranquil morning views you'll have...but their pricing is seriously ouch. Also, be aware of the baboons if you're sitting outside. Yes, I know it's in a high-traffic tourist hotspot, and a wine farm to boot, but it gets to a point where you just can't help but feel they're milking it just... More
