My friends and I were pleasantly surprised, this beautiful restaurant is a must! I had the Tortellini Prawn Chowder Starter, with Bodega Lamb Curry and to finish it off with a rich Bodega Chocolate Brownie. They were charmingly presented and were absolutely delicious!! Lee-Anne Du Plessis did an amazing job of these dishes! Will definitely be back for more.

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.....

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!

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!
