“Great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Enjoyed a great meal at the Big Easy - menu offers a nice variety. Presentation was well done and the service was excellent. Nice bar too - really one that you feel comfortable just stopping in for a drink with a friend.

“Not Fine Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is beautiful, historic building in old Cape Dutch style but they advertise as fine dining which it is definitely NOT. The menu is boring, sauces for meats are disgusting and presented like a paste in side dishes. Meats are good quality but accompanying veg. almost non-existent.

Extremely boring food at prices that belong to fine dining. I know because I live there. It is a one hit restaurant. Catch the tourist once. Locals don't use it often as many good and cheaper restaurants are around town.

“Great service food a little pedestrian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is the sort of restaurant your parents would like for a posh do. It's a great venue and fantastic service. However I couldn't rave about the food- it was all very ordinary and not that imaginative if you don't eat meat. We eat fish so should have had a better choice from the menu.

“Wonderful ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

The food and wines are good but what really sets this place apart from the other places where we dined while in Stellenbosch is the ambience. A great place to sit back and enjoy a conversation without having to raise your voice.
