We thoroughly enjoyed a lunch here. They had a special on the seafood food platter the day we visited. It was exceptional value for money. The food was delicious and the wines paired very well. We were visiting with friends who live locally and I am glad they brought us here. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

No wonder wine and food are at best here. Me and my family love to get away and enjoy good food and wines at reasonable prices. The white wines are some of the best in the world.

This was our first visit to Bodega, but we will return. The view of the montains from the stoep is awe inspiring. The food is creative and delicious. I went with the Beetroot Towers with Goats cheese followed by the lamb cutlets, both beautifully done. Of course we had some wine starting with the Coacoa Hill Sauvignon Blan and finishing... More

We drove out to Dornier Bodega Restaurant from Cape Town for Sunday lunch with friends. The setting is magnificent - tucked up against the Stellenbosch mountains. From the parking lot we walked through lovely garden areas to a large overhanging stoep where comfortable tables and chairs were set up and lunch was served. The menu is creative. There were ala...

We had lunch at this spectacular venue in January. We were under time constraints and the service match our expectations. We had a fabulous bottle of wine followed by an amazing seafood platter interrupted by a phenomenal wine tasting. Would definitely be back again!

We went for tapas and wine on a Friday afternoon after work. We enjoyed every bit that was presented to us. We loved the variety which catered for different tastes and preferences. The wine was lovely too. We thought it was good value for money.

I was keen to eat here having last been almost 3 years ago. The setting is lovely. Amazing mountain views. We arrived at the end of our day of wine tasting around 5.30pm (a Thursday) & with no reservation were seated on the terrace. Between 3 of us we had.....a tapas selection, a platter of 10 langoustine, 2 cheese boards,... More

Nice varied choices in their menu to cater for everyone. We received very efficient service, and the ambience was very relaxed. Good food, hearty portions, their wines are soft and easy to drink. The surroundings are tranquil and really pleasant. There is a jungle gym for kids, so very family orientated.
