As usual, lunch at Cuvee did not disappoint. The food is amazing, especially the venison and the pork belly. For desserts, try the creme brulee, one of the best.

Our lunch was organised by our B&B operator in Cape Town and it couldn't have been better. The day was lovely, so we sat outside, which only added to the charm of our lunch. The food was superb and the service excellent. I'm sure there are many great places to eat in Stellenbosch, so I can't comment on any others,... More

Our visit to Cuvee was unplanned, but a welcome surprise. Service was top notch, fast and efficient with a welcome drink offered. The extensive menu impressed, also relatively well priced. We ordered the crispy squid, mushroom tart, pork belly and chocolate dessert - was truly a culinary delight. We will definitely visit again.

Food beautifully presented with so much thought and design. The proof of true excellence was in the tasting and each of the three courses were indeed 'out of this world'. Delicious food, very good service, well designed deco in such a beautiful setting. Our favourite meal in two and a half weeks of fine dining throughout Cape Province. Excellent wine... More

We had lunch here. A very good design restaurant with good well prepared food and a nice relaxed atmosphere, with proper well educated crew. Perfect for families, business and romantic lunches. We go back there everytime we are in Stellenbosch!

We have been to the restaurant two times in our recent visit to the Stellenbosch area. On both occasions the food was excellent and each time we were treated with great friendliness by the manager on duty. The chef also went out of his way to ensure the food was suitable for my husband who has an allergy to shellfish.... More

Wee had an excellent lunch with oysters bubble and crabs, and returned with friend for menu-dinner (only on fridays). An unforgettable dinner, and with selected wines. A must if you have the chains.

We booked this restaurant for Valentines night as we had heard how special they had made this night previously. We had visited before for lunch and dinner so anticipated that our hopes and expectations would be met. Well we were not disappointed. The whole restaurant was obviously booked fully out and like many South African restaurants there was a set... More

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The scenery is amazing, the wine and food are special and the Simonsig wine estate and its restaurant, Cuvee, combine all three. A favourite day in the Wine Lands for me is leaving Cape Town at around 10.30am. Get to the first wine farm at around 11am before... More
