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.

Visited on a crazily busy Sunday for lunch, and were accommodated despite not having a reservation. 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.

The Lord Neethling restaurant near Stellenbosch is situated on a most beautiful wine farm overlooking the mountains. The premises and gardens are kept in pristine condition and it is an absolute pleasure to relax and dine under the trees on a warm summers day. The breakfast offered included fruit, cereals and muesli, cold meats for those preferring that fare, sausage,... More

We got married at this venue a couple of years back, and returned to sample their food again. The service was very good and fast. We were seated inside (although there were lots of tables just waiting to be filled outside). The menu is huge and we found it difficult to decide on a meal, but ultimately, the food was... More

You cannot but effuse about the beauty of the setting of The Lord Neethling Restaurant, nestled within the Neethlingshof Wine Estate; it is indeed a place of tranquillity and beauty. The tree-lined avenue on the way up to the restaurant just fills one with anticipation of what is to follow. The nearby mountains and surrounding vineyards just add to the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Seafood Platter at this restaurant a few months ago. The serving was very generous and accompanied by a fresh mixed salad. It was a perfect day and we were able to sit on the verandah (patio) and enjoy the view while we had our meal.

Flowers on table wilted, waitron can't explain the menu, food presentation disappointing and taste only average. One order messed up totally and meat dish too tough to eat. No response from catering manager when comments submitted. It was our first visit and certainly did not live up to our expectation and the reputation of the facility - pity it is... More
