Spoilt my wife and myself to an outing in Stellenbosch. Wijnhuis provided a decent lunch but it was their wine list that was most impressive. We would recommend the establishment. Without wanting to be negative we were of the view this establishment is better than the one in Newlands.

We met an ex-colleague from the UK, who now lives in Stellenbosch, here at this lovely restaurant. We sat upstairs with the canopy pulled back, ate good stake and drank good wine. Service was perfect and the atmosphere in the restaurant relaxed.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal in the charming courtyard of this super restaurant. Stellenbosch was very busy with all the places buzzing with students so we were pleased to enjoy a great meal in this tranquil area. The area is charming with a water feature, many pot plants, umbrellas and heaters. Although the evening was a little chilly we were... More

Being a guesthouse owner in Stellenbosch one is always cautious with recommendations for our guests. However, whenever we had send someone to Wijnhuis they came back more than happy and fully satisfied, therefore this restaurant has become a sure bet for us to make bookings on behalf of our guests. Being an 'Epicurean' (of 'foodie') me and my partner -... More

Wijnhuis captures the spirit of Stellenbosch with its modern version of cape winelands styled interior. It offers very good food which may be a touch heavy on South African pockets but excellent value for overseas visitors. The extensive wine list with the option of drinking various wine by the glass, carafe or bottle is a nice change to match your... More

I have been here a few times. Place is divided in many spaces but I love the wine lounge the best. The couches are HUGE, comfortable and the atmosphere relaxed. They have a pavement/cafee seating area on the street as well as a wine tasting bar and a open eating place on 1st floor. They also have a more formal... More

The restaurant is beautiful with good service, extensive wine list and cellar / wine shop on the upper level where you can browse. With 20 wines by the glass on offer you do not have to be locked into buying a bottle and trying to pair with all meals. My wife's avocado ritz was great as was my salad or... More
