We had an excellent breakfast under the trees in beautiful gardens at Boschendal. I had salmon and scrambled eggs and my husband had a farm breakfast. They served very tasty homemade bread. Coffee very good. It was definitely a very enjoyable experience.

We really enjoyed the lovely picnic underneath the trees at Boschendal. The bean bags and hammocks were great to relax in. The food was great and we loved their wines. Overall a very nice experience which we could recommend to everybody.

The winery of Boschendal is among the best in Franschhoek. They have tradition and excellent wine making skills. For a small fee, you may taste Boschendal's well respected wines and hear the history of the vineyard. Lunch is served in a different building which you can access easily by car. The grounds are well maintained and are usually dotted with... More

This is something you must do when in Stellenbosch; a picnic in the green at Boschendal Estate. (You must book in advance though.) The garden where they serve the picnic is truly idyllic, with the massive mountains in the back ground. You will get a picnic basket full of goodies, and a small flag to get the waiters attention (even... More

The experts in the kitchen at the Boschendal Farm Shop & Deli certainly know their oats - as it were. Situated beneath the stately rows of oak trees and lush green grass, this eatery provided us with a scrumptious lunch in a pleasantly tranquil setting. Their menu showcases, not only the abundant talents of their cooks, but the fresh and... More

Noleen assisted us with our reservation for 16 friends and family for the picnic, hammocks and bean bags. Our picnic baskets were beautifully packed with proper cutlery and pots filled with delicious fare and freshly baked baguettes and of course great wines, ice buckets and coolers for bottles of water, we set out to have one of the best days...

I had booked a picnic for my family and our Johannesburg guests based on a recommendation (I never used Trip Advisor to check their reviews) and was left a little embarrassed and disappointed. While the scenery is stunning and our waitress helpful I couldn't believe there was such bad planning, as people do make reservations for the picnics. We ordered... More

I have been going there and taking guests to them for some years now. However, it has deteriorated so badly that it is time to change, it has terrible food. You get half a cold chicken to share, the rest of the food is served in little glas flasks. Salmon and cream starts to ferment but thier chef does not... More
