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.....

Even though the Dutch cuisine isn't one to be proud of, Binnenhof doesn't really do it's best to try to present it in a special way. It is just an average cafe-like place, nothing special. I think there are better places to go to for the same money, but of course for bitterballen you should be at a place like... More

I was here with a colleague for an early dinner and we told the waitress we had not too much time: she was most helpful in pointing out the dishes that took little time to prepare and we had a very good meal without any stress. Would love to return!

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.

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...
