Quaint and lovely!

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... read more

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

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

Having passed this restaurant and read about their great burgers, we booked a table for 5 people for a family get together on a Sunday evening. The venue is popular with students and tourists and always looks quite busy. There are tables outside and different rooms inside and we were in the "Dining room" . We arrived but no-one at... More

Remembering the great burgers we used to have at this place as a student, we decided to visit Stellenbosch and have a Saturday burger at 5 on Ryneveld. It was just past lunch time and we thought cocktails would be nice as well. On arrival the waiter informed us that they have a cocktail special and we should order more... More

I heard from a friend that their burgers are crazy good, so i had to try it. I had the Ryneveld Deluxe burger. My friend had the Rockstar burger. We shared a bite of each others food and both tasted amazing. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable (We asked his recommendation ). They also had great drink & cocktail specials. Will... More

The burger I had tasted great, but the meal was to small. A few french fries and no saled. The salad of my girl was a lot of green and little good stuff. After our feedback we got extra french fries and a pancake. That was a nice gesture.
