The menu was OK but the service rather slow, and the food did not match with our expectations. Situated in the historic Dorp Street of Stellenbosch, it is within walking distance of most of the town's attractions, including Oom Samie's shop across the road (an old world general store dating from the previous century). Adequate parking space available.

Wonderful reception from attentive & knowledgeable staff, not overtly Els, with on,y one main wall dedicated to the golfer. If you want great food, excellent service & a wide wine choice, this is the place for you. The 440g filet steak is more like a Sunday family roast, very delicious & tender. Recommend to all visitors to Stellenbosch.

We have been coming here for about ten years and have enjoyed our previous meals. However it got off to a bad start as we were not given a table where we had specifically asked. Then the table we were given was in a wind tunnel so we were moved. We ordered musells in White wine sauce and carpaccio of... More

We were fortunate to join friends at the Big Easy for lunch! Overall a good experience. A great venue and Winelist! Service wasnt bad, but everything just took longer than supposed to when a restaurant is not busy! Will be back!

After being very excited to get a last minute reservation, we were horribly disappointed. After sitting at our table for almost twenty minutes before anybody even came to talk to us, we were left for another 15 before we got our drinks. The food ended up being overpriced and only okay, my meat was overcooked. The service was awful, and... More

The old Cape Dutch homestead is one of the icons of Stellenbosch. From the classical front interior the modern part leads to the tranquil courtyard with a peaceful fountain. Very attentive service, a varied menu, great ambiance and an excellent wine-list make for a great evening. I had the recommended prawns which were succulent and tasty. The kudu loin was... More

We were really looking forward to eating here after a recommendation from our hotel. Things started well with good service and starters but the main courses were a little disappointing. There were clearly problems at a neighbouring table so we decided not to voice our relatively minor complaints: our waitress was doing her best in a difficult situation and didn't... More

Having visited Big Easy more than ones our latest visit was a bit disappointing. In terms of taste and visual appearance everything was wonderful, but the meat was overcooked. I think this is one of the most unwanted situation - everything has to be done again and it makes 20 additional minutes waiting time. Fortunately the staff took care of... More

We ate here on our first night in South Africa and were astonished by the cheap prices in such a nice restaurant. My husband was delighted with the golfing link and I was overwhelmed with the wine choice! The food was delicious with a range of meaty main courses.
