An old favourite

This is one of my longstanding favourites in the Western Cape Winelands region with more than 20 visits over the last 15 years. On every trip so far it has been a MUST. Nevertheless, this year the standards, very sadly, seemed to be slipping. They have switched to a laminated menu which seemed like... read more

The peppered flambé fillet with the tempura veggies is an absolute must. Had a lovely dinner with good wine and an all-round pleasurable experience!

We ate as a family of 5 with 3 children, the restaurant has a rustic country charm to it and it is nestled away amongst the vineyards between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. The steak was superb, the other food fairly average and dessert offerings for kids pretty poor. The service was just about OK and we very much felt as... More

We returned to 96 Winery Road for dinner 3 years after our last visit from the UK. The experience last time was wonderful and on this visit our expectations were once again fully met. The welcome was heartfelt, the service attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing in any way, the food delightful, the wine list extensive and there was no... More

I am writing this review as much as a lesson to myself as to other readers 96 Winery Road came highly recommended. No question, the ambiance, the starters and the wine were excellent. However, the steak on the bone which I had was tough and a big disappointment. In addition, our request to substitute vegetables for the chips was forgotten... More

We returned after many years with international guests expecting another excellent experience- but what a huge disappointment. The food was good but the service was non-existent from our arrival to our departure. No management in attendance and everything took ages from initial drinks to ordering and even receiving the bill. Standards have definitely dropped which was reflected by the fact... More

The most incredible steaks! Lovely West Coast mussels and of course the most gorgeous wine selection. Lovely fresh little homemade breads to over indulge in and almost ruin your appetite!! A slight pity that the interior of this well known establishment does not reflect the same trendy vibe as its name. It screams make over (!) but if you can... More
