Sat outside on a warm day enjoying the al fresco dining. Overdid the wine list and the wonderful and filling duck pie. Pleasant, unobtrusive service. A delightful experience all round.

We have always liked visiting 96 Winery road. The food was always good and frankly, they have gone out of their way to accommodate us several times. The wine is always excellent and service very, very good and very friendly. On our last visit we were very disappointed to find they had modified their menu, taking away the "Fresh, seasonal...

Thank you so much for your positive comments. Please tell your wife we completely agree with her regarding the menus. They really haven't worked the way we had hoped they would and are in the process of finding new leather menus for the launch of our new menu. We hope to see you both back here soon. More

Winter or summer, this restaurant delivers. Boasting an amazing wine list, despite being attached tons wine farm and also a varying menu between summer and winter, the atmosphere is welcoming. Food is excellent, and despite a management change recently, continues to be good value and well presented. Steaks are always great, the oxtail with star anise in winter is amazing... More

Service is great and the restaurant has a good atmosphere but unfortunately that where it stops. We had the pulled spiced lamb and steak on the bone. First of all the steak was cooked medium rare as requested but it was tough, stringy and without much taste. The lamb had a weird spice mix which made it unpleasant. This restaurant... More

Last time I was here was over 10 years ago and I had the Madagascan Pepper Fillet Steak. It was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Tonight I returned with family and had it again, this time it is called the Hollandse Pepper Steak. It was just as good as last time, little bit smaller but still... More
