I have visited Rust & Vrede twice this year and I am so impressed with their attention to detail and level of service not to mention Chef John Shuttleworth's amazing menu. The sommelier is well versed and it was refreshing for me that he actually listened to my taste but "pushed" me a bit to venture closer to the chardonnay... More

Rusrt en Vrede is one of those restaurants where one really feels being a guest. The service is flawless and still very freindly and personal. The sommelier knows his job so does the rest of the staff. The quality of the food and the presentation on the plate are of a high standard. So if you in the neighbourhood please... More

We went there for my Birthday, and had an absolutely top notch meal, with excellent, thoroughly spoiling service. We hadn't been there for a few months, and the complementary bottled water was a new brand. I said to my husband, that I missed the normal Aqua Panne, which they used to have. 5 minutes later a bottle of it appeared... More

The winemakers lunch is steak with fries and salad. The day wew were there, it was served with Shiraz, which was a perfect compliment. The steak was huge and delicious. We all enjoyed it thoroughly. I believe that is the only thing they serve at lunch, so it is not for vegetarians. For Americans, the price was unbelievable. I think... More

Just popped in for a wine tasting and had some excellent wines, estate Syrah excellent. The tasting room is under renovations but there is a very cosy pavilion that worked very well.

Every time we visit the wine lands we always have dinner at Rust en Vrede and it never disappoints. The food was great with great flavours and cooked to perfection whilst the service was excellent. All in all a great meal

A wonderful dining experience. Great food at a top class restaurant where the staff, whilst being unobtrusive, could not do enough for us

Wonderful three hour dining experience at Rust en Vrede. Superb service and ambiance. We opted for six course tasting menu - well worthwhile. A number of other little surprises were also offered as part of the experience e.g. pre - dessert dessert! A "must" dining experience.

If you are in Stellenbosch and looking forward to wine tasting accompanied by exceptionally delicious tenderloin steak in the shadow of oak trees in a vineyard, this is exactly the place you are looking for! The steak was really as scrumptious as the steak served in a French restaurant and we had a very good lunch at a reasonable price.... More
