The restaurants should choose between upmarket (game steaks and the lot) and mass market (pastas etc.). Trying to do it all results in food that just is not good enough given the ambitious price level. On the night we visited, the organization failed also, although the (Dutch) owner was around. No clear division of tasks between waiters, orders forgotten, and... More

My wife and me stopped by this restaurant on our travels through Stellenbosch. We were at first worried - the menu had so much variety that we wondered if the food would be any good (we had bad experiences with restaurants trying to "do it all" before), and the small number of customers seemed like a warning. But we were... More

The service was friendly, but the prices are very expensive for what you receive. Ate a hamburger - which was a meatball basically (lacking in taste) wrapped in thick pastry - but not puff pastry.. weird. And it was expensive for the quality. Waited long. I know of friends who also vowed to never go back.

In side street of of Dorp, a Courtyard venue, only two noticeable outside tables, still as with all small venues copes well and provides good food. Lots of passing cars in a narrow street.

Never have I ate any worse quality game meat in my life and to end up paying top end prices for it is shocking to say the least! How do they manage stay in business? The food was uneatable....

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

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, Springbok, Warthog) for a very reasonable 195 Rand. They also... 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.
