A good stop while "wining"

We were on a private tour of the winelands and our local guide had selected it - "one of his favorites". Reservations recommended. Casual. We sat outside in a nice setting. Service was good; food was better. Relatively inexpensive.

This is the 2nd time that we have been to this restaurant and it just reinforces what we discover the 1st time.

We have eaten here once before and loved it. Our food is visit was just as scrumptious but we felt a little let down when we were recommended a wine by the manager which was hugely expensive and we expressed we didn't particularly like.

My husband and I ate here for lunch. I ordered the potato gnocchi, it was a total disaster as it was so undercooked and mushy, I sent it back only for it to come back burnt looking and still the same plate of food, a new batch was not done. The Manager was very professional though and had me order... More

Visited this restaurant some 15yrs ago & was blown away by the choice & quality of the food. When planning our route around the Cape Somerset West became "a must". Stayed in The Country Guesthouse adjacent to the restaurant for two nights, Sunday so we could eat Lunch & Monday for Dinner. The food is still good but the menu... More

Helderberg's little gem never disappoints. Still consistent after so many years. Sunday lunch just perfect, warm welcome, great food and top service- Duck & Cherry pie always a winner! See you soon!

Last year, this placed was packed, and with good reason. Less busy this time, but that could not be because of the food! Flambé filet for 4, with brilliant chips (fries). No one could ask for better. Not subtle - big chunk of beautifully cooked steak, tons of sauce and chips to dip in it. But it is truly great.... More

If you like quality food, good service and easy going atmosphere this is the location. You are allowed to bring your own - no corkage charge. The meat dishes are all good. Though the 500g should satisfy a provincial rugby player. Fish dishes are good as well as the mussels. Boland wine owners/makers apparently bring their families as their local... More
