Overated! The service was very slow when we arrived. The one chicken dish on arrival was raw and whilst the rest of the party carried on eating the guest had to wait. The new chicken dish was different and seemed like it had been microwaved. Overall it was just pretty average and overpriced. Would not return

If you're in Stellenbosch this is the place to go if you're looking for an amazing steak in a classy environment with some lovely wine. We visited whilst on a whistle stop tour of SA following my brother on a rugby tour, and I can safely say that it was the best meal we had during our entire trip. The... More

I was worried that the restaurant was going to be too posh for a relaxing meal out but it managed to combine a stylish and welcoming decor with an easygoing ambience. There was something for everyone on the menu and the food did not disappoint. The wine selection was extensive and catered for all tastes as well as providing decent... More

Great place for pork ribs and pulled pork. The daily specials or lunch menus are good value for money, if you can finish them. I also appreciate it that whatever you cannot finish, they will wrap for you to take home. Crispy calamari and the blue cheese chicken wings are really delicious. Very nice ambience and friendly service, will be... More

Good steakhouse and general dishes. The food comes quickly and the service was friendly. The house is pretty unique and old schoold from year 1798. Still affordable and good after all experience.

Situated in a beautiful building on Dorp street, this is one of my favourite restaurants. Their breakfast menu is not extensive but everything on it is well worth your time. Dinner there is also delicious! Keep warm inside during winter or ask to sit outside on the patio in summer.

Enjoyed the wine. Whether from the bottle or from the glass. The house wine is good. The cheese platter is great. Perfect to accompany good wine. The venue is in very good location looking onto the street and it's safe. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed.
