Beautiful view, lovely food and wine

Love the location. The food was very good. Wine selection is great and well priced. Attentive and pleasant staff. We were seated on the terrace which overlooked the beautiful garden and has a stunning view of the mountains.

After the woordfees and Jan Braai crowned the neetlingshof burger as the best in town we were eager to try in out a few months ago. And true to it first prize acolade it was delicious. As the best form of service is consistency we decided to go back today. Much to our dismay the burger was far from the... More

The service is not fast, but it is good. Besides good food, the views are remarkable as well. It's along the wine route, so easy to get to. We really enjoyed the wines here too.

We stopped in here for nibbles in between wine tastings. There was a large tour group there at the time, so the service was a bit slow. The food was well prepared and fresh.

This was my second visit for the Sunday Buffet. A few changes has taken place since the first visit and I am afraid, the changes were not improvements. The range of available dishes is now smaller. Quality is still more than OK, but it used to be so much better. I was looking forward to the pickled fish, but is... More

What an awesome venue overlooking the garden with the roses in bloom, oak tree leaves been shed and all the brown and red hues of the vineyards too stare at. The service was exceptional with a great menu choice with lots of variety and reasonably priced, similarly with the wines. Awesome venue with great food, delectable wine and attentive staff... More

Well, our tour operator setup an Indian meal for us at this vineyard. It was a wrong choice. And then the chef had prepared beef, which is a sentimental issue for Indians. It wasnt the fault of the restaurant but of the tour operators. They did their best to make us comfortable, but we left unsatisfied. Couldnt help it. The... More

It was my second time visiting the restaurant fortunately they were not fully booked unlike every other wine estate in the vicinity we had not pre booked. Sitting on the stope was great except that the laid table right down to the glassware was dusty, wind blown. The service was a bit slow but friendly and relaxed. The food was... More

We were seated on the terrace of the restaurant overlooking the most gorgeous rose garden and mountains. I found out the restaurant is named after a previous owner that had a lot of airs and graces (self importance) so they nicknamed him Lord Neethling. When I first read the menu there wasn't much there for veggie's so I asked the... More

The food and service was good enough as well as the ambience of the restaurant. We were a table of FOUR people. When the Bill came it listed the items we had but right in the middle of the Bill was Service Charge! Why was this, did we have to pay Tax on this too? Normally for any restaurant Service... More
