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 breakfast here on a Saturday morning - perfect way to start the weekend. The staff were incredibly friendly and food was great. The breakfast menu had a huge variety to cater for all dietary requirements. The food portions were very generous and everything tasted amazing - I would definitely recommend the French Toast. This is the perfect setting for... More

We had a large birthday there recently for 22 people. Although our booking was misplaced, Jade was an absolute superstar!! 22 individual orders for starters and mains and every meal was on time as well as simply delicious. Jade, I'm yet to meet a waitress of your calibre and professionalism. Thank you for making our day even more incredible.

Set on beautiful grounds, in one of the original Cape Dutch buildings, Jonkershuis is a very attractive place to eat. A great balance between informal and chic and a nice varied menu make it a great place for couples or families. The food we had was good, although the pasta bacon-mushrooms might have been a bit loveless - with its... More

disappointed that no effort what so ever was made for an advanced request for a special birthday breakfast for a friend... added to this - the hostess on the morning in question was anything but friendly. nevertheless - the atmosphere, excellent value for money breakfast and friendly service by our waitress, will make me return in a month to two...

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon without a booking and luckily it was after 2pm so we were able to get a table. We opted for an outside table as it was a fairly nice day. This is ideal for kids as there is a big space for them to run around away from the diners area. The menu is... More

We did the Red Bus wine tour loop off the Blue Route and dropped into the Jonkershuis Restaurant for a scone and a cup of coffee. What a wonderful place. It was a beautiful sunny day. We sat outside under the shade of an avenue of leafy trees. The service was quick and very friendly. I had never had a... More

Had a party for 20 which was well looked after. I thought the food average but my guests were happy with it all. For example the lamb curry was of good portion and well cooked, let down by lack lustre rice and dried out rolled up roti with a few samballs. I had thought it would be lighter, fresher and... More
