This establishment has jungle gyms outside and appears to be kid friendly so we went there with my 8 month old for my birthday. When I had to use the bathroom counter top to change my little one. Moving the soap and towels and flowers tint the basin to do so. When I went out I approached the manager ,... More

We are indeed a family friendly restaurant and babies are most welcome here. The amount of families with babies and young children that visit us is testament to that. There is a table in the bathroom, as mentioned when you asked and guests are welcome to use it as a changing table when required. I have used it many times... More

Was so sceptical of the offer, too good to be true, expected the bare minimum, at the end I can just say take it up quick as it’s only available until end September and an absolute steal at R699 per couple. The three course set Daddy’s deal meal turned out to be a wonderful dining experience, the service was also... More

Had lunch here, and the vineyards and setting was beautiful Service was great, and loved sitting by a crackling fire place to enjoy a great meal Make sure you save room for dessert (called calorie corner on the menu) it's well worth it Very reasonable pricing (although we are comparing to Sydney) We happily eat here again

We had the lamb shanks for our main course and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. The meat fell off at a soft touch, drowned in an amazing, flavourful sauce, garnished with crispy butternut and some exotic tomatoes. I had the 3 cheese vondue as a starter. It was not served like a traditional Swiss... More

Whether you are here for lunch of dinner, business or personal, you will not be disappointed. The wine list is extensive and give a superb representation of what the best there is in the Western Cape to offer. The food again is also superb and is larger than normal dishes, means, come with an appetite! This been said just because... More

We spent an evening here with our son who was working in Stellenbosch. The wait staff were attentive and looked after us well. The starter of Pork Belly which all three of us ordered was really delicious. We would have like a bigger portion but knowing two more courses were still to come it was big enough. We all had...

It appears that 96 Winery in Stellenbosch is mostly frequented by locals, which must be a good sign. The friendly staff, extraordinary wine list and broad menu ensure that there is something for every taste. Don't miss out on the mouthwatering olives to nibble on and creme brûlée dessert. I enjoyed the lamb shank, which was cooked to perfection. We... More

Even if it's pouring with rain outside, this is a wonderful sanctuary from a Cape storm. Great selection of craft beer & wine as well delicious food: highly recommend the duck & cherry pie as a hearty winter's dish. I had the line fish which was also superb - loved the clarity & harmony of flavours. Well worth visiting for... More
