birthday treat

Is there anything special I could arrange for my husbands birthday that falls on day 6 of our holiday while we are in Stellenbosch?

If you both enjoy good food and wine, then have dinner at Rust en Vrede.

Hi!

Depends what you like..

I live in Stellenbosch..

What type of scenery, or food or atmosphere do you like?

And, the entire day, or do you only mean like a dinner somewhere?

Thanks,

Yes I guess we will be enjoying the wine anyway. I wondered if there was somewhere special that did picnics or if it is possible to do something like a balloon trip. Where is a really nice place for dinner?

I wouldn't plan your day around a picnic as ens of April/early May the weather will be quite variable. Plenty of excellent lunch venues (mostly on wine estates) with indoor/outdoor seating depending on the weather. A quick list to choose from :

Hidden Valley (Overture)

Guardian Peak

Kleine Zalze (Terroir)

Jardines at Jordan

Clos Malverne

Tokara (have been there for my Wife's Birthday three years out of the past 6)

Delaire Graaf

If the weather seemed good on the day Boschendal (although a bit touristy) is a good picnic venue.

If you picked Boschendal or Tokara or delaire - all on the road towards Franschhoek then maybe you would like to look at a few hours at the franschhoek Motor Museum at L'Ormarins Wine Estate.owned by the Rupert family (one of SA's richest families). One of the best Motor Museums I have been to anywhere in the world - and the only one I know which grows wine! http://www.fmm.co.za/

For Dinner I can only echo macsym's comments on Rust en Vrede. Probably the best dinning in the Winelands at the moment. But even at this time of year book soon as possible - especially if the special day is Friday or Saturday : rustenvrede.com/restaurant/about-restaurant

For dinner, as Macsym has already stated, you must eat at Rust en Vrede. We dined there 4 months ago & it was brilliant. As a back up there's always Delaire.

For either, you will need to make an advance reservation.
