I have visited the Big Easy in August and again in September. On both occasions I can say the rump steak was excellent, tender and also delicious. None of those hidden sinews present. The presentation was simple and the service was good. The red wine complimented to the meal. Would I go back? YES!!

We were 4 people and all the food were over cooked . It is over priced for the rather mediocre food. They used to be one of my favorites, but I won't be going back.

As golf lovers we decided to get the 'Big Easy' a experience at Stellenbosch. We did read a review regarding an innocent waiter and we had the same guy. It started out fairly funny but when wines were mixed and served after food was already served and got cold, it started to become annoying. He stated the manager would compensate... More

Nice selection for lunch and pretty outdoor eating areas. If you're a golfer, it's fun to see the memorabilia and pictures.

The best part of our experience while dining at the Big Easy was our second waiter, Innocent. His professionalism and knowledge of the menu & wine list was of the caliber that we experienced while dinning at Tokara, Rust En Vrede and The Pot Luck Club (Cape Town). When we initially walked into the Big Easy, the hostess informed our... More

Recommend this place to just get some good food. Nothing to gourmet, but visit for a good steak etc. Service is also good and their wine list is OK.

We had salads and burgers. Food was good. Service was a bit slow. Restaurant has golf memorabilia from Ernie Els's tournaments.

Nothing was particularly good except the beautiful room and friendly service. Poorly cooked risotto, over cooked mussels, ordinary calamari, soggy shrimp. After so many great meals in the Cape and wine country, this was not in the same league.

Fantastic food and amazing wine list. Staff could not be more helpful and we had a great evening. Nice touch in the bar area with all the Ernie Els memorabilia. Great value for money especially with the GBP/ZAR exchange rate. @beck_stuart

So if you weren't aware this place was set up by Ernie Els in 2008 you will the minute you walk past the reception area. You find yourself in a room with a fire place (nice), 4 dining tables (intimate) and no less than 80 framed photos of the Earnie! There's a cabinet with trophies and a whole wall papered... More
