Cook doesn't master "rare"

Restaurant Binnenhof clearly tries to project itself as more upmarket in comparison to the many eateries that this part of Stellenbosch is offering. And in general terms, this is indeed the case including real tablecloth and good light. I was attracted by them offering a Trio of Game steaks (Kudu... read more

On our way back from day safari trip, we stopped here in Stellenbosch. This cozy, artsy feeling area has lots of choices for restaurants. Binnenhof offered a menu with variety, some out of the ordinary for us, with a local flare. The wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Owner on hand to check in on how happy you are,... More

We really enjoyed the wide selection of game including some quite unusual options . The service was friendly and the quality good . It was not a five star high end dining experience but a great place we would return to

Our first night we had no real idea where to eat. Made very welcome and just what we needed some unsophisticated good quality food, in friendly surroundings, we ate in the garden by the wood burning oven.

Nice little (Dutch) restaurant. Came here and both had pizza's, which were quite high-priced for what we got. Had a Geraldo pizza for R89, but there were hardly any toppings to find on my pizza. Waiter was a nice guy though, we had some fun but if the prices were more realistic it could be much better!

Having little other choice as we arrived late in the city and most other establishments were closing, we stumbled upon Binnehof. The staff were accomodating and very friendly and quite prepared to deal with our requests, however and perhaps this is to deal most student patrons, I found the menu and offering average and in line with other general offerings....

The hole in the tablecloth should have warned us... Despite the friendly staff we had a disappointing evening. Food was of low quality. Dry rice, unseasoned vegetables and a bobotti dish that seemed to have been prepared four days in advance. You can get so much better in Stellenbosch at the same price level.....
