we had a great evening at Lord Neethling. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly, which was awesome. The food was well presented and promtly served, but the food had no wow factor.

We last went to the Lord Neethling 4 years ago and booked again this week for their Sunday buffet - the members of staff are incredible offering true Cape Town hospitality by locals who had worked there for years and run the place with smiles and love. It was exactly that element the food on our buffet lacked, going to... More

Sunday lunch buffet was to die for. The most beautiful setting surrounded by wine farms and mountains, some snow capped. After a starter platter, got up twice for main courses, plus 2 bowls of delicious desserts. Could kick myself for not talking my camera. Great wines from the Estate at reasonable prices.

As it was so busy, and there was also a function next door, we realized that there would be a wait, but we enjoyed the winter sun and stunning views. Our main course was good, desserts were excellent (our waitress was incredibly helpful with... More

Having lunch under the Oaks on the terrace in front of the stunning Cape Dutch house (restaurant) is just fabulous! The food is good "home cooking ala Mama" and the service quite slow, but with this setting, and at that price, who cares! We had a lovely time, and will certainly go again.
