Overall it was a very good restaurant, good ambiance and friendly service. The menu has the traditional South African food, but I liked the Dutch snacks, Bitterballen and Patatje Oorlog.

We went there with the 4of us. The waiter was very friendy and the food was very good. This restaurant is the perfect place for a good and not expensive mail. Binnenhof restaurant is a real taste of south-africa. .

I was twice in this restaurant during my 10 days in Stellenbosch: first with a group of South African colleagues, then to celebrate the conclusion of a successful visit. The first time, we were lured in by the sign outside of the restaurant, announcing that there were springbok, kudu and crocodile steaks on the menu. During the first visit, we... More

First the good: good location and relaxed setting. The not so good: poor service; no attention or interest. No professionalism. No attempt to engage or explain anything. Lacklustre follow up. The poor: incorrect order taking; no apologies, no explanation, no remediation. The food - prawns and mushrooms - were incorrectly presented and mediocre at best. Advice? Perhaps stick to the...

welcomed by owner who assured us of a good meal. We then waited over 2 hours for food finally deciding at 10:15pm to leave with empty stomachs. On complaining the manager and waiter were non apologetic and cheeky. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Having had a fabulous meal at Binnenhof about 4 years ago when last in Stellenbosch, I thought it would be a good choice for lunch with a friend from the UK. Well, it wasn't! The food has deteriorated horribly! We started with a rocket salad and carpaccio of kudu, which was very promising (although we ordered two carpaccios and only... More

Stellenbosch has many very good eating places, but this is definitely not one of them. The service was extremely slow and very sloppy. The food was huge, but not very appetizing - sorry - quantity does not make up for quality. Nothing good to say about this place.
