A glorious summers day and what a great day to drive to Helshoogte and experience this amazing restaurant. I took family and friends with and everyone had a really great meal and we all planned to be back to try the high tea. The ingredients in all the meals were so fresh and everyone had fun tasting each others meals.

We visited Hillcrest Berry Farm on two occasions. The service wasn't bad, but the menu is way overpriced for what you get. I had a three egg omelette with tomato and cheese for R60! The omelette was definitely made with only two eggs and wasn't seasoned, there was about an eighth of a tomato on and about 10g of cheese.... More

Whenever in the Western Cape I try to make a point of lunching at this casual "different" venue! Set outside Stellenbosch and the road to Franschhoek, it's an easy scenic drive. The mountain view from this eatery (especially if you sit outside under the big market umbrellas) is quite spectacular and worth the trip alone! The menu caters for breakfasts;... More

3 months ago, I visited Hillcrest Berries with a visitor to Cape Town from overseas. I was absolutely appaled by the treatment of the manager towards us from at first refusing us a table to personally attending to our order in an abrupt and uncouth way. A waiter who had witnessed this entire incident then gave us an email address... More

From the homemade raspberry iced tea to the chicken pie to the Berry custard tart the food was incredible. Service good and the bill for four very fair. A place to visit again and again!

I recently went there with friends for lunch and the food was utterly amazing. Everyone at the table stated how much they enjoyed the meals. The scenery is lovely and the shop selling everything berry -related was a real treat. Well priced and great value for money. A real gem.

Our table on the terrace looked onto the mountains. The weather was unbeatable, a lovely day. Everyone was happy with their meal, varying from scones to eggs Benedict. My vegetable wrap was tasty and more than enough. I was quite disappointed that I could not fit in a slice of the baked cheesecake as it is delicious. The store that... More

It is difficult to beat the setting overlooking a valley towards the mountain range. Boboti is a famous South African dish consisting of spiced meat baked with an egg based topping and is a speciality here, well worth trying. We are regular visitors and will be back for more!

I arrived in Cap Town on 8th December and friends took me to lunch at the Hillcrest Blueberry farm. All was perfect from the service lunch and quality. A delicious babotie and cheesecake with a lovely white chardonnay made my day. I strongly recommend.

Had a lovely mid-afternoon break with tea, scones and delicious jams - some of them exotic - at this charming cafe.
