Just around the corner from Somerset lies this hidden gem. The inside seating area is small and feels a little claustrophobic especially during the winter months. Good food and wine and a really nice place to celebrate in with your friends

I have recently returned back to Scotland after my holiday in South Africa. We ended up eating at this restaurant the first night and loved it so much that we decided we would return on our last night! The food, wine and atmosphere was perfect and remarkable value for money. I would just like to pass on my thanks for... More

We went twice to this restaurant when we were in the Western Cape staying at Klein Welmoed. The food was excellent, ambiance good, the service was quick and efficient. Will go again if in the area!

I visited with two tourists and we had lunch. The service prompt and friendly! The food was spectacular! I had a steak and did not want any starch, so they brought me some veggies instead. No stories about how I change the menu and mess with them plating up. I really enjoyed my meal and so did my friends.

We visited this fine restaurant imbedded between vineyards and enjoyed the good food, the wine ( a nice veiaty) and excellent deserts. Although it calls for a drive, the place was crowded, giving the place even a better look. Service was great. One downside was the fireplace. It worked when we entered but later we were freezing and there was... More

The "two course special" was exactly that "special". Portions are generous and the presentation has that WOW factor. Highlights were the Duck and Cherry Pie and superbly cooked Fillet. Pity we do not live closer as it would be hard to resist weekly visits. Staff are well informed about the menu and quietly go about making sure you are looked... More

The atmosphere is great, the location is great, the price is right and the food is divine! Our steaks (the Dutch fillet) were outstanding and the "posh chips" crispy on the outside and soft inside. We both loved the tempura veggies. We finished our bottle of wine too soon and opted for something sweet, a real treat. And yes, we... More

The wine list is rather daunting (read 'many unknown vineyards at eye-watering prices') for mere mortals like us but the food, service and atmosphere is always wonderful.

96 Winery Road Restaurant never disappoints. Situated among the vineyards between Stellenbosch and the sea, this restaurant with farm style furniture, excellent wine collection and cosy fire in winter always offers charm, excellent service attention and even better food. The favourite, so they say, is the duck pie, but any dish is excellent. The selection of steaks will even leave... More

We booked a table for 12 people and were pleasantly surprised. It was a very good experience and wine selection was great. Only gripe was the steak wasn't proper medium rare as was ordered. Other than that, the selection of dishes was top notch. Many thanks for a very good experience
