Although it does take a while to receive the food, the tapas we had at Bodega were fantastic! Really enjoyed them and will definitely go back there! The view that Dornier offers is amazing and the wine is yummy. Love this wine estate!

After careful selection based on the venue and its supposedly good reputation we booked for a large group for my mother's 75th birthday celebration lunch. What a mistake! We were told to arrive at midday, and although the small kids were fortunately served very early, and we had some starters about an hour and a half after the order, we... More

Dornier Bodega was recommended to us by a former member of the staff, who described the food as fresh and seasonal in a lovely setting. The setting was delightful, service was ok, but the food was boring. The fillet was cooked appropriately, but certainly not as interesting as you would expect in a reasonable steakhouse. Was accompanied by a boring... More

We absolutely loved visiting Dornier in January 2014. The staff is amazing, there knowledge in wine is excellent and the service is incredible. The food is world class. I would like to go back every day! The kids area is great and entertaining.

We unfortunately only had the opportunity to visit Stellenbosch for the day (from Cape Town), and wanted to ensure that it was a memorable experience with our three children. The menu catered for younger tastes as well as more adventurous palates, and we were all very happy with the food. While we sat and chatted over a glass of wine,... More

Our son celebrated his 40th birthday party with a luncheon at Dornier and the event was certainly tops in every respect. We were 60 adults and 20 children and the restaurant seated us at one very long table (a series of wooden tables placed end-on-end) on their lovely verandah facing the mountains. The food and service could not be faulted.... More

We booked a table of 20 for a birthday celebration and had pre-ordered the Bodega Feast Tapas (you have to pre-order and pay a deposit for a table larger than 12) - it was fantastic. The service was attentive and quick, even though we were a large table. The food that arrived was amazing and plentiful! We had plenty good... More

If you visit a wine tasting and you want to have some good food, then dont go there. The food is maximum average and we had quite high expactations. Friends of us recommend that place, but the lunch was not good. We had springbock which was rare instead of medium. Also we had beef fillet, which was medium done as... More
