Please delete obsolete places. Tripadvisor should be up to date and delete restaurants which have closed down. Eg this one has been closed for a long time and has subsequently been sold. Anyone with a better solution to adderss this phenomenon! Why must reviews have 100 characters.

This is a spot to definitely include in a day's outing to Stellenbosch or Hermanus. The vibe at JennaVIVA is always upbeat and friendly, the decor and service both stylish and impeccable and the food just fabulous. We have been there for just a cocktail at the yummy bar upstairs, a quick lunch, intimate dinners and fantastic special celebrations and... More

I recently have a fantastic romantic diner at this place, the food was spot on and the service was great not to intrusive, but there when you needed it. I also liked the atmosphere it felt very intimate for us and yet at the same time there was clearly a lively crowd enjoying themselves upstairs. When we did venture upstairs... More

The restaurant was busy and there was a good atmosphere, with a one man band playing some good music. Our waitress was a bit pushy but it was... More

We've been to JennaVIVA for cocktails, lunches and dinners and have always had a good experience. The decor is trendy and the fireplace is a welcome sight in winter. The menu is extensive so you are sure to find something suitable to eat no matter what the mood or appetite dictates. Service is good and the staff friendly. Highly recommended.
