“'Probably The Best Market'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

'Oude Libertas' market Is for me simply the best ! The atmosphere is fabulous, so relaxing. The array of food on offer is delicious. From arts & crafts, clothing, champagne & oysters, sushi & foods to sample from around the world. It's a real party atmosphere. Go early and have breakfast. You won't be dissapointed !!!

“An excellent night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We visited Oude Libertas Amphitheatre for one of their summer sunday night concerts and saw Sipho Mabuse. We had a fantastic night and next time we're back in cape town would certainly visit again for one of their events.

“Mozart under the stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Not the metropolitan opera, but quality musicians in a lovely setting. They have a varied program here and it is definitely worth spending an evening while in Stellenbosch

“New Year's Eve in a Different Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We went to Oude Libertas for the New Year's Eve picnic and concert. Initially picnicking on the lawn, we then went on into the theatre. The performance of the band was very enjoyable and we had a great time. We also liked that patrons were given a free glass of sparkling wine at midnight and that everyone toasted with each other.
