The first thing you notice when walking in is the great setting of different dining rooms. We were seated in the courtyard (which is covered by glass) and enjoyed a very good dinner. Starters and mains were cooked to near perfection and definitely didn't leave any room for dessert. In my case, the baby chicken was more the size of... More

The setting is perfect. A lovely set of dining rooms in what feels like an old embassy. From the moment you walk in you feel relaxed and ready to enjoy food and wine. Great menu, not complicated or over done. It accomodates everything you could want whilst keeping it simple. Oysters were good, fish cakes good. Steak, lamb, chicken and... More

We've visited this restaurant several times and it's never disapointed us. The choise of food is good and the service is just right. The very convenient parking next door is also a huge bonus.

It's not a steakhouse but the fillet steaks are excellent. Just a caution: the sauces are more jus than traditional sauces; delicious, but you might be disappointment if you're expecting a thick creamy sauce. The venison burger is also superb.

My husband and I recently stayed overnight in Stellenbosch and while wandering along Dorp Street looking for a restaurant we went inside Big Easy and reserved a table for five people for that evening. The hostess was very friendly and despite it being rather busy she reserved a table in the main dining area for us. The restaurant is set... More
