Three ladies were treated with great friendliness by all the staff and had a very good light lunch for a very reasonable price. The view from the stoep is breath taking.

This was our 3rd visit to the Berry Orchard and it proved to be '3rd time, not so lucky !' However we will return as the setting is really special and every restaurant can have a bad day. I have had the same thing 3 times because I love it so much - the camembert, fig and walnut wrap. I... More

A lovely to spot to lunch on a really hot day in the cooler air of the Helshoogte Pass. Lovely views, very good food from an imaginative menu and charming staff. Probably better to book for an outside table over a weekend.

A old fashioned farm stall with a wide selection of all sorts. Worth-wile for getting berries at a better price than in shops in the city. Nice break for coffee

Hm... My recent visit to Hillcrest was unfortunately not great and I really felt it needs to be mentioned, as I got the impression that Hillcrest Berry Orchard is completely overrated. No 'Hello' or 'Welcome' when we arrived, but rather a brushed off 'do you have a reservation', Well, we didn't, but it seemed like such an issue and the... More

Such a tasty salad in this beautiful setting - split pea and crispy bacon - really unusual and absolutely delicious. Ask for a table with a good view - with roses in the foreground it was perfect. The farm shop with delicious jams was irresistible...

Delightful setting in the mountains above Stellenbosch with really excellent views.You can sit in or outside under the umbrellas. Service was attentive and friendly. Good wholesome food. Reasonable value compared to other venues in the area. The shop is a must. Don't leave without the piquant sauce,

Had a relaxed family lunch. Food is homely and built around berries. Devonshire scones are as good as the real thing, from Devon. Service was a tad slow, but they were busy.
