Good café food

The food is of café standard and tasted good, with fresh ingredients and prepared with an apparent effort. The waiting staff was young and friendly. One negative is that the outside tables were very small and didn’t really allow for everything to be set on it, the bottles we had to keep on the... read more

Extremely interesting menu. Waiter was not the greatest of servers but when the food came all was forgiven. It deserves 6 stars not 5. Make sure, if it is a nice sunny day to book a street side table.

This is a reliable place offering good value for money whether you just want a beer / cocktail or a large meal, with burgers a particular specialty. Happy to recommend

I had a great experience, good service..happy hour is the best. I reccomend the classic american burger and mintnifecint cocktail. The manageress and our waiter (a man with the name JD) were very friendly and catered to our every need. Inpeccable place. A must visit when in Stellenbosch!

I've been to 5 Ryneveld twice now - once with my movie club (they have art-house movies upstairs) and once for lunch with my boyfriend. The food has always been beautifullyl presented, large portions and delicious. Their prices are mid-range and definitely worth going. The cocktails are delicious (especially the Cosmo). Really good wait staff and really good quality!

Best chicken burgers according to my family. It was full but staff made sure they could accommodate a family with kids. We felt welcomed and looked after. We did not plan this outing. We just walked around until we found a place that fitted our mood.

What a disappointment! 5 on Ryneveld was a family favourite, but it's off the list now. Yesterday we decided to have lunch there. We were seated in the courtyard. After having been handed our menus and waiting for about 10 minutes, we finally went to look for a waiter to take our order. After waiting another 15 minutes for our... More

This beautiful building used to be home to De Zoete Inval - a pancake restaurant that offered delicious meals and beverages. It is heartwarming to see the tradition being kept alive within this interesting building. The food at 5 Ryneveld is delicious and the architecture of the building allows for imaginative daydreaming. The waiters ensure unique deliverance of goods and... More

We booked on a refrence from a freind and the review ratings. What a disappointment. Old bread buns and dry burgers. Service is slow and the overall feeling is dirty menu's and sticky tables. Worst burgers I have ever seen or tasted.

We were given a poor table that coloured the rest of our experience with a negative tinge. The courtyard table was directly below the kitchen window - they would be better off not having this table at all. The menu is quite original but the execution of said menu is okay but not great. The chairs were ridiculously uncomfortable. I... More
