We received a recommendation from our B&B host: it was a perfect dinner - one of the bests we had in South Africa! Staff is very friendly, very much service orientated, food is outstanding, wine card has many regional wines, hard to choose from but with help of the waiter we had a delicious wine to the food! Next time... More

I enjoy going to Big Easy. The food is excellent but the menu has been the same for as long as I can remember. Would be nice to experience something new there. Other than that the service is excellent and it has a nice cosy atmosphere. Worth a try especially if you have never been before.

The whole ambiance of this eatery is fabulous. The Ernie Els memorabilia is absorbing, and for those who are fans of the local wine industry you will often see some of the main players dining here. I find the food average, but perfectly fine. They used to do a fabulous lunchtime lamb-burger which rarely makes it back onto the menu... More

One of our favorites in Stellenbosch! This place is always good, you can depend on the food and the service. They have a great wine list and a varied, if not spectacular menu. I suspect that we will continue to patronize this restaurant every time we are in town.

A lovely setting, food was perhaps a bit better than average but the staff did not seem to be very happy - rather doing a job without passion or ethusiasm. A rather sombre place for a celebration.

It's a impressive building, in similar style to all in Stellenbosch, where we were pleasantly welcomed and service was flawless throughout. A bit hot in our particular dining room area (next to bar) but food was varied, served in good time, and wine recommendations were fair and quaffable too. We moved through to the 'Trophy Bar' afterwards to finish our... More

Enjoyed oysters and a few glasses of wine here. Pity the oysters were served with a shallot accompaniment that was too sharp (besides for having been ordered, yet charged for) and a waitress debating with the barman as to whether buttered bread could be served with the oysters. However, the glasses of wine were lovely and the fire place most... More

I had a wonderful dinner in this restaurant during my honeymoon with my husband. The staff was very nice and helpful and the atmosphere was very intimate. The wine list was very rich. As starter we had the grilled calamari (very tender and delicious) and my husband the west coast mussels (really yammy!). As main course my husband had the... More
