As regular tourists to the Cape over December, we kept up our tradition of a trip into the wine lands for some wine tasting and lunch. Unfortunately we decided to book at 96 winery. Our booking was for 13h00. We arrived on time, 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Once seated it took over 15 minutes to be offered a drink... More

We visited the 96 Winery Road Restaurant today. Walking into the restaurant we were not greeted and had to stand and wait till somebody came and pointed us to our booked table. This was not done very friendly at all. Once seated it took forever to get the waiter to take our order, then the drinks (water) took long as... More

We haven't been to 96 for a good six months, but went there last night with some friends. As usual we all had the Hollandse Pepper Filet, cooked with brandy and cream and flamed at the table., It was gorgeous. My husband has broken his arm, but managed to cut his filet using only his fork, which says how tender... More

Dear Jane D Thank you very much for your positive review. It always makes it just that little extra special when someone who know the restaurant makes time to write a review. We loved seeing the 2 of you and the Berry's again. Hope the arm heals up nicely. Once again, lovely to see you again Regards Jacques More

We took some Cape Town customers to this restaurant on their recommendation and it was superb. Everything was perfect. Most of us chose the Madagascar pepper fillet which was so tender it hardly needed cutting and was served with perfect French fries and roasted veggies. Other popular choices included the duck and cherry pie of course. The wine list is... More

Having never heard of 96 Winery Road, I have to say I was a little doubtful when we drove up to this restaurant. It just seemed very rustic and casual. BUT I was soon proven wrong. The atmosphere was cozy and the restaurant was packed - pretty impressive considering the fact that it was a Friday afternoon lunch service. The... More

It is a warm and cosy space, perfect for winter. The waiters were friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu items. The menu featured what was in season and locally sourced.

Stayed here a few times and it is so relaxed and friendly. Ok so sometimes the showers might not be perfect but this more than made up for by the staff and the food. Relaxing countryside setting with easy reach of Somerset west and 45 mins to Cape town. The restaurant is fantastic and always busy but remember there is... More

Met up with old friends and glad we decided to return to this restaurant. The ambience and food as good as ever - we have been coming here ever since it opened and never disappointed - casual with simple delicious food.

I had read about this restaurant more than 4 years ago when staying in nearby Strand, but never found it. Now I know: when on the R44 towards Stellenbosch turn left at Ken Forrester (sign Firgrove) and then it's just down the road. It was worth waiting for because they have the most divine "HOLLANDSE" PEPPER FILLET which is as... More
