We went to 96 Winery Road Restaurant a few times with friends and on date nights, and we were never disappointed. We particularly enjoyed the steaks and duck&cherry pie, as well as the wine pairing suggestions. Even though the interior is nothing fancy (and could use a bit more style), it nevertheless had a lovely ambiance. You will need to... More

We were a group of four and the food we had was excellent. This included soup, prawns, pork belly and calamari as starters and the famous duck and cherry pie as mains. As wine we had the Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc, it was excellent and very reasonably priced. The service was erratic and it should be improved, to match the... More

This is a great restaurant between Somerset-West and Stellenbosch. They offer an excellent 'hollandse' fillet steak accompanied with some mighty Cape reds. The service is very good and professional. We did not provide it with the full five stars as we think that the interior decoration could be better/more interesting. For example, part of the restaurant is tiled and we... More

We have been to 96 Winery many times, and when were back in the Cape two weekends ago, we decided to go back as we were staying close by. There always seems to be a lot of waitrons running around, but the service was very slow. We had starters and main course and dessert and all the food was very... More

We had booked for an outdoor table for lunch on a weekday and 96 wasn't that busy. The young waitress directed us to a cramped table, the smallest in the place which wasn't a good start. We asked for and got a bigger one in a more open area. We were ready to order when a resident of the guest... More

We went for a dinner here on a Monday evening because all the other places were closed. Upon arriving, we were welcomed with warm hearts and smiling faces. We had a heavenly Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc and our oyster starter was out of this world. My salmon main was messed up for the starter and I didn't think the beetroot... More
