Unfortunately the Restaurant has closed down. I don't know for what reason it was truly a great place to eat.

Friendly staff, although the place isn't dog friendly. The meal was awful. I had a club sandwich and fries. i have to say it was the worst club sandwich I've ever had. The chicken looked and tasted like it had been dropped in a deep fryer and swam out of the sea, as it was the most salty piece of... More

A genuine class restaurant where many of the staff are as the name say, apprentices. It is always nice to talk to them about their training.

My wife and I like this unpretentious eatery where students learn their craft. It is a very good value for money establishment where meals and wine are very reasonably priced. The service is always swift and attentive. Ensure that you include this restaurant on your list of good restaurants in the winelands. Kenneth & Petra Fisher.

We had a nice breakfast here, perhaps too expensive for the quality and quantity of the food. No extra effort or decoration has gone into the food. The drinks were very nice though.

just ok. The nice thing here is just to sit and enjoy the street and everything happening there. Sadly it is too much traffic in Stellenbosch in general.

The restaurant revolves around a progressive concept which feels good to support and experience. This was my first time to visit in a few years. Myself and two others had some tea, coffee and light snacks in the morning. The service was friendly, being served by the manager. The scones and confectioneries were tasty. The scrambled eggs was good value... More
