Description: Steenberg has raised the bar with an innovative new Bistro-style cellar door restaurant and wine tasting venue unlike any other in the Constantia Valley. Named BistroSixteen82 after the year in which Steenberg was first established, the interactive wine and food destination has seen an overwhelming amount of local and foreign guests, since its opening in November 2009. With an ambience that embodies opulent chic, BistroSixteen82 seamlessly complements Steenberg's popular fine dining restaurant, Catharina's.Intrepid chef and bistro dining specialist Brad Ball, of the River Café and Olympia Café fame, lends his gastronomic savvy to the 70-seater Bistro Sixteen82. A unique Raw Bar features counter seating and interesting, healthy and delicious raw cuisine such as sashimi, gravadlax, ceviche, carpaccios, oysters and tartars, where dishes are freshly prepared on order by designated Chefs.

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Visited this venue a couple of times and was never disappointed. Upmarket Bistro with lovely outside seating if the weather permits. Lovely food (and oysters) with good wine list and they offer wine tastings. Little bit more expensive than the average Bistro but definitely worth it. Go see!

“POOR COMMUNICATION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

We were a table of seven on the 17th August. I ordered the roast chicken which was very grey when it arrived and was not edible. I picked at it not to cause a stir with my guests. I was violently till on Sunday night through to Tuesday morning, having to call the doctor for a house visit. I wrote to the restaurant and explained my meal with the concurrent illness, suffice to say that I have not had a response of any sort. I find this such a poor sow from an operation such at Steenberg. I will not be back and not will the restaurant ever be recommened by myself or my guests. Poor show Steenberg

“Overpriced, pretentious and inconsistent”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We had lunch there recently; 2 good meals, one boring, one really disappointing ... 3 tiny pieces of fish and a zigzag of sauces. No veg, nothing else. As host it was extremely embarrassing - I would never risk taking business associates there again. Slow service too; slow arrival of food, sloooow removal of plates, waited ages to be offered coffee and to get the bill. Not going to repeat that experience!
