“What a wonderful place to visit !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

I took my young daughter out to the Dornier restaurant yesterday. What a lovely setting. The views are magnificent as is the food !! Portions are generous and the presentation is exquisite. My daughter eat from the children's menu which offered a good variety whilst I ate from the A La Carte and enjoyed a concurrent wine tasting. The Sauvignon Blanc and The Pinot Noir were my personal favourites but judging from the number of patrons purchasing I would assume that their whole product offering is on a par. The fact that they cater for children of all ages and have play facilities to entertain their younger guests is an added bonus for me. There were several children on the jungle gym and generally playing around but I can honestly say that they were barely noticeable, if at all. I would highly recommend the restaurant, their wines, indeed the whole experience and will definitely be back - soon !!

“A lovely relaxed lunch stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Dornier is a relaxed location to have lunch, plenty to chose from and lovely outside space. The architecture of their new buildings gives an interesting contrast to the traditional homestead building which houses the restaurant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

I attended a Dinner at Dornier as a guest of EBSCO on my two days business trip to Stellenbosch. The dinner served was beyond my greatest expectation. Well done!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

There are so many wine estates in and around Stellenbosch but Dornier was well worth the visit. If you go for lunch on the lovely terrace, make sure you book as its always busy.

“Wunderschön...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2011

Unser schönstes Erlebnis in Stellenbosch war der Besuch beim
Weingut Dornier. Wir haben 5 der 10 Weine probiert und alle waren ausgezeichnet
(unser Tipp: Dornier Cabernet Sauvignon). Da die Sicht atemberaubend war (der
moderne Weinkeller und die imposanten Berge), haben wir uns ein nettes
Mittagessen im Restaurant gegönnt (der Flammkuchen ist erstklassig!).

Wir würden bei unseren nächsten Besuch wieder dort essen und
trinken!
