Birthday dinner

Great steak, superb wine list, excellent service. We loved the mussel starter (almost a full meal) and the selection of steaks available to choose from. The wine list catered to a vast variety of different tastes with some very rare wines available. Relaxed atmosphere with a strong focus on service.

The Steak that is flambé At the Table comes with a nice Pepper Sauce. Instead of Fries it's possible to add steamed veggies. Very nice staff! Booking mandatory because there Are many locals

This is a favourite of ours and we try and have our first and last meals of our holiday here. On our first visit we ate Pork Belly which was crisp and excellent, and mussels in a sauce. Excellent. This was followed by Venison Loin (Kudu) and seared salmon and a rump steak. All excellent. On our second visit we... More

96 Winery Road is always on my list of "must visit" restaurants in the Stellenbosch area. Fresh ingredients, probably the best and most tender meat I have ever eaten and a comfy and down-to-earth atmosphere. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. Head chef Adrian is constantly improving the menu and the dishes are superb and getting even better. The... More

The location is very beautiful and if there is a chance I would always try to sit outside. The inside is cozy and comfortable with chairs where you can easily spend a few hours after the meal. The food was exceptional good and they maintain this quality level already since years. The beef fillet with a lovely brandy sauce, flambeed... More

We have been using this restaurant for several years now, and it is always a pleasure to come back. ‘Rustic’ sums up the décor, which is fine by me. There is a pleasant west facing terrace, with an arbour and spectacular sunsets. 96 might as well save on printing menus as far as I am concerned. We knew before we... More

The evening was sold as a gourmet food and wine paring,featuring a Michelin starred chef from the UK. Menu was not what we were sent by email weeks before at the booking stage. Food was of a poor standard. Lacked flavour and interest. Wine was generally good and service was friendly. I sent an email afterwards to the management to... More
