Best reviews to Binnenhof! A really interesting menue that covers a lot of tastes - the burger fans get their deal, the pasta lovers theirs, and then - the zebra, ostrich, and whatever wild game that is not protected, AND the Xhosa kitchen, which proved to be tasty, not overspiced, and - acuallty with some modifications, even veggie friendly.

We decided to try out Binnehof just before Christmas. The waiters are very friendly and helpfull. We ordered a starter only to be informed that managent forgot to order and therefore it was not available. We were offered other starters which we declined. We decided to try the home made beef burger. We received our food and it was well... More

The simple starters,the chicken livers, crumbed mushrooms, YUM YUM YUM, best food we had in Stellenbosch. In our experience if you avoid the expensive menu items and go with the bistro food, Binnenhof is fantastic. J-P and his staff are friendly, welcoming and efficient, for us the best service in the city. Nice wine selection too. We were reassured by... More

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.
