No better way to spend a rainy Monday afternoon

Such a friendly and helpful greeting followed by really great and attentive service. The lamb shank was absolutely delicious and the pinotage was a perfect accompaniment. I would highly reccommend Bodega to anyone and I certainly hope to return soon!

We opted for the full monty including the wine pairing. Certainly not worth the R600 per head plus. Average food. Nice staff. Stick to the basics. Very scenic lcation. Doubt if we will be back.....

It was a rainy day so we opted for indoor seating next to the fireplace. Good veriety on menu. The Chef was very accommodating when the men at our table wanted bigger steaks. Thumbs up!

What a lovely view of the majestic mountains surrounding Stellenbosch. I have never been disappointed at Bodega Restaurant. Good service and great wine with a view of the Dornier wine cellar and vineyards!

This is a picturesque setting especially on a warm autumn day. Our waiter was very friendly by clumsy. We ordered a 2 course meal with mains and desert. We ordered mains and desert together. After waiting for at least an hour and half and having finished our bottle of wine our mains arrived. I had pork belly which was wonderful.... More

Not our first visit to the Bodega. Food still solid and well prepared. As almost every time some dishes from the list were unavailable, service could be more professional but staff was very very friendly. Good wines from the estate. It is a relaxing atmosphere on that veranda.

The food came out slowly - we were a table of 14 though - and it was busy. The wine was served slowly and much of the meal we helped ourselves to refill. The staff are friendly - although a bit un-approachable. We would not go back soon.

We went to have lunch at Dornier's. It is an absolutely beautiful place. From their terrace you have a magnificent view over the vineyards and mountains. You can sit in the shade but also partly in the sun. When it's getting too hot, they actually spray mist onto the terrace which was most welcome by us. The food is also... More

An annual Family Easter luncheon treat was the reason to take a drive to the winelands away from the city buzz. Our host found the Easter special on the website. On arrival, the mountain vista was beautiful. We were met by two courteous staff members at the terrace reception table. Wind - inside or out was an option - we... More
