Description: Indochine serves Asian-inspired cuisine presented with a contemporary yet delicate twist. Only the finest seasonal local ingredients are used, with menus featuring fresh organic produce grown in the greenhouse on the Estate. Flavours are lively, aromatic and robust while maintaining a style of cuisine that's synonymous with vitality, wellness and healthy living. Diners have the choice of enjoying the contemporary interior or an alfresco experience, with wraparound views stretching over the valley below towards the majestic Table Mountain. Hotel guests may enjoy breakfasts in the privacy of their Lodge or at the restaurant, where an indulgent array of dishes await, with gourmet ingredients handpicked from the area - berries from a nearby farm, the region's best charcuterie, organic dairy and decadent pastries - in addition to a selection of beautifully presented hot dishes.

We were a table of four and we were all pleased with the food. All my three courses were really good and the only complaint I heard around the table was an aubergine side dish which was very fishy for some reason. I tried it myself and it really was fishy. Otherwise everything else was very tasty and the plates... More

This is THE best restaurant in South Africa in all categories. The food is fantastic. It has an asian touch which is lovely. I have been here 2 times and I will definitely come back next time I am in SA. The service is also outstanding and you can't complain about the view. All the food is easy to combine... More

Restaurant Manager explained menu as fusion food selection by naming springbok main course adding some asian herbs to be the reason for this. Just one dish with local meat does not make a fusion restaurant. All the other dishes are named according to asian dishes and that is where it ends. Asian food -even so called fusion dishes- taste different.

We got a taxi here on our second night in Stellenbosch and were instantly impressed by the restaurant decor, ambience and surrounding views. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. We opted for a set menu which gave us a wide range of dishes at a very reasonable price. The fish eggs were particularly delicious! The flavour combination in all dishes... More

This was a special treat for my daughter & boyfriend visiting from New Zealand. We dined at Delaire's Asian restaurant 'Indochine'. The day was perfect and so we sat outside on the veranda amongst the manicured gardens and rolling hills - a truly idyllic setting. The service is 5 star and the food surpassed everything that we had expected. I... More

This has to be one of the most stunning dining rooms anywhere. The view at sunset across the vineyards and towards the mountains are exceptional. The food and service are what you would expect from a place with the Delaire Graff Name behind it. The service was almost faultless throughout and matched the quality of the foood which for the...
