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."

A group of old friends meet under the old oaks infront of the Jonkershuis. Part of the pleasure of coming here is the remarkable and stunning location. The staff were great and the food very good although there was a power outage just after the breakfasts had been served and with a full days bookings for lunch God knows how... More

This restaurant old easily become one of my favourite places to entertain my international guest, the tranquil setting and fantastic services, places this establishment very high in the cape. The food was more than expected and very tasty. We sat outside under some trees, but I just felt a sense of relaxation and peace overlooking the groot constantia lawn and... More

Made the fatal mistake of not calling ahead for lunch in Dec, leading to a tiny table in the far corner of the inside room, instead of outside in the courtyard under the trees. Reasonable menu, with home style Malay inspired cooking being the focus, backed up by Groot Constantia wines by the glass. Unfortunately when the venue got busy... More

This restaurant on the beautiful Groot Constantia farm is one of my favourites. The setting is lovely with lawn and trees and overlooking Cape Town. The ground near the entrance to the restaurant is a bit uneven and could be nicer... We sat in the courtyard in the back and enjoyed great service from a well trained and attentive waiter.... More

The Groot Constantia vineyards are the oldest in South Africa and the historic Manor House of Cape Dutch architecture, which can be visited, features at the centre of the estate. Adjoining is the Jonkershuis Restaurant housed in former estate buildlings, which has views to False Bay and the Constantia Valley behind the estate. We took lunch at a table just... More

A birthday treat to me :) came here post the wine tasting and cellar tour of Groot Constantia. The food here is a great mix of modern and some classic Cape Malay cooking. We had a family member with us who has a series of dietary needs. Because of this we had emailed the restaurant a few weeks before to... More

I went here for a late breakfast on a stunning spring day. The scenery was amazing as the trees blossomed and the rows of green wine stalks paraded off in the distance. The venue is exceptional combining an rural feel with a very high class rounding-off, right inside the city limits. A most definite for wine enthusiasts and its one... More

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
