Great food in the heart of the winelands

96 Winery is nestled in the midst of vineyards. In summer, great views with oudoor dining. In winter, fireplaces in every room with warm, welcoming staff and a great fine dining menu. They also offer a wine paring menu.

We were recommended this restaurant and 13 of us went on a busy Friday night. I thikn everyone chose the steak and this was paraded around the table by the waiting staff for everyone to choose the type of steak they would like. The atmosphere was very friendly and the venue had quite an intimate feel to it. I don't... More

I have been here a few times for lunch and dinner and the food is always great and service is friendly and good but if they are really full and busy it can be a bit slow. I would advise to make a booking before hand as they tend to get busy. The duck cherry pie, fillet, burger is just... More

The restaurant is quant and cosy with a huge fireplace and roaring fire. Vetkoek and flavoured butter as an appetiser was delicious! My rump steak was perfect, as was the lamb shank, but the parmesan and truffle oil chips a disappointment. Excellent service and a good wine list. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was a good but not great restaurant. The best part may be the fact that you can get in, it is large enough to make reservations possible. The wine list as you might expect is impressive

Went for dinner for a friend's birthday on a Tuesday night, and it was a great night with delicious food, awesome service and fantastic wine! The ambiance is great, the fireplace was up and running and our food was cooked to perfection. The value for money is great, and I will have to go back again to try their burgers... More

We ate here on a cold and wet afternoon. What a pleasure. Warm cozy restaurant with great comfort food. The cheese fondue set just the right note to start and the lamb shank was absolutely spot on. Service felt a bit rushed but all in all a very nice spot.
