    Great Value Wine Tasting with Expansive Views
    Our private tour guide took us to Glen Constantia as part of our tour to the Cape. Without a booking we were seated in the light and airy tasting room with expansive views of the region out to False Bay. We selected the tasting of 6 different white wines. Mathew, our server, was both friendly and informative. A good food selection was available but we didn't participate. With generous pourings the charge of R130 pp represents fantastic value for money.

    Good wine and excellent food
    Beautiful views and lovely location. We had an excellent lunch on a cool and rainy day, followed by a great wine tasting experience. Luke guided us through the flagship wines. We had a lovely experience and I highly recommend.

    Lovely place for lunch
    We enjoyed a long lunch here on a cold and rainy day. We shared the charcuterie platter for 2. Our Constancia FIVE red wine was a perfect accompaniment. Service was very professional yet friendly.

    Delicious food and wine
    We visited Constantia Glen on our way out of Cape Town. It was a beautiful sunny day and also a holiday for many locals and so we expected it to be busy but hoped we'd get a table. The greeting could have been a bit warmer but we were told there were no tables outside and that we'd have to sit inside. It was fine because the table we got was in the window so we got lots of sun too. We decided to do a wine tasting alongside having some lunch and am glad we did because the food was amazing. I had the 6 white wine tasting and my husband tried the standard tasting and the wines were nice, very different although I wouldn't say they blew us away. The food was delicious. Our boys had burgers, my husband had the lamb pizza type thing (I've forgotten the proper name sorry!) and I had the trout and potato rosti which was one of the nicest things I've ever eaten! We were well looked after during our visit. Service dropped off a bit towards the end but they were really busy. Glad we stopped here and also got some lovely pictures of the beautiful setting.

    Fabulous lunch overlooking the vineyards
    Very nice setting overlooking the Constantia Glen vineyards. We had a sharing platter with our wine tasting and then the flat breads - very light pizza type meals. The mushroom and truffle was delicious. We very much enjoyed a bottle of Constantia Glen no 5 2017 - excellent.

    Favourite lunch spot in Cape Town
    I'm very surprised and disappointed by some recent negative reviews of Constantia Glen. It's always a "go to" for lunch when we visit Cape Town and our recent visit totally lived up to previous experiences before Covid. We had booked ahead (recommended if you want a seat on the verandah or in the glass house) and enjoyed excellent food, superb wine and stunning views combined with friendly & efficient service. We had a cheese platter & a flatbread (Flammkuchen) between us which were beautifully presented, delicious and plentiful for two people. The Constantia Glen Two was terrific and combined with the unrivalled views across the vineyards for another memorable lunch. Thanks for all the staff, we'll be back on our next visit to Cape Town.

    Fantastic wine tasting
    We had an amazing after afternoon at this winery. Marina was our host for wine tasting and made the whole experience so interesting. She had an infectious smile and provided great service. The wine was lovely and so was the food. So glad we visited and would recommend.

    Wonderful venue with great food and service
    Wonderful setting with great food and service. Have been twice recently and on both occasions we had no complaints at all and don’t understand the bad review posted by someone else today. It was Sunday and therefore very busy but we had excellent food served in good time by a charming and knowledgeable lady called Marita. My fillet of beef was perfectly cooked as requested and the plate of charcuterie was beautifully present with generous portions of a variety of goodies - photos included - and all such good value.

    Brilliant Birthday Party at Constantia Glen
    I celebrated my birthday at Constantia Glen yesterday with 20 friends. I want to start off by complimenting Zanelle who I was in communication with prior to the day. Zanelle was so efficient, friendly, professional and an absolute superstar making sure everything was organised. We arrived a little before the time and got a gorgeous private area with magnificent views of the vineyards for the party. Everything that was promised, was delivered. Luca was incredible checking up on us and at making sure we were good and had everything we needed - as well as all the other staff. The food platters and Flammkuchen were absolutely delicious. This was honestly a 10/10 all round from start to finish, which is so rare! I cannot fault a single thing. Thank you so much to Zanelle, Luca and the Constantia Glen staff for making my birthday such a seamless pleasure! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a birthday venue to make contact with Constantia Glen.

    Epic place to enjoy a great range of wines with great complimentary food. We had a wonderdul time here and it has attentive service and lovely views. Outside in the sun in an evening is the best place to enjoy this place with a full range of wines. Highly recommended.

We went to have dinner at Constantia Glen last night, we booked a table for six at 7pm. We didn’t take long once seated to order and ordered both the drinks and food at the same time. We ordered 2 x chacuterie boards to start, followed by six steaks. The boards arrived and were delicious, the waiter hovered to collect the plates and mentioned that he needed to bring us the steaks asap as the kitchen was closing. After the steaks we asked if we could have dessert to be told no the kitchen had closed. As we left I looked into the kitchen and it was scrubbed clean with no staff in it at 8.30pm. Why advertise you are open until 9pm and take a 7pm booking if you cannot provide a proper service or full menu. We all left disappointed as we listened to music and chatter on the other side of the kitchen wall, clearly the staff hadn’t gone home!

Not our first visit to this wonderful spot. I booked for a staff lunch. The venue is exceptional. The food was superb, enjoyed by all. The service however fell far short. We booked for 10 seats and our table was set for 9. Easily resolved. We waited over an hour before being invited to order food. It was served after another long wait but the dishes ordered were all absolutely delicious. After another long wait I finally managed to summon a waitress to advise we wanted to order dessert. Menus were offered but no follow up until eventually I managed to call another waitress. Another long wait but again, the food was perfect. The bill added a default 15% service charge which is normal for larger groups but certainly not deserved in this case.
We had an enjoyable afternoon at this wonderful venue but a stay of nearly 4 hours due to slow service was not appropriate.

We arrived on a sunny and cool afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the wine and food. The views were incredible. The outdoor lawn was a fun spot to take photos and just relax on their beanbag chairs. Another bonus was that it was so close to everything in Cape Town. They let us stay and drink and relax for a long time and we never felt that we needed to finish up. They guided us in what to order as a pairing with our wines. It was fun.

We booked the private dining area for my husbands 50th birthday. For obvious reasons we couldn’t have a party and unfortunately we expected more. Bad service. No complimentary anything. Brought a cake and was told that it would cost R350 to eat it in house
, plates and glasses stood blocking view from the people we were taking to. All in all a 50th lunch on his special leaving with a bad taste.

Great views and some unusual food make this a good spot for lunch. We usually go for a flammkuchen main, which is too much for one so half goes home with us , plus another main dish, on this occasion a very nice fillet of beef. Wines from the estate are pleasant and not expensive so all in all very good value. I’d suggest booking in the indoors area , which has open sides, for best protection from the noon sun whilst having the best views over the beautiful farmland.
Good service from when you walk in to when you leave.

It's all about one person CALEB. I could write about many aspects of our wonderful experience. However, without Caleb it would all have fallen apart. He did the work of 4-6 people. He was covering far too many tables ( we alone were 7 on one table and he was also working another 5 tables around us....) He was doing too many jobs, bringing menus ( not enough on the table ), taking away dirty glasses, bringing clean glasses, taking away dishes, giving educational tastings, answering questions patiently, taking orders. His efficiency and effectiveness were clearly compromised. There were hiccups. The problems were obviously to be laid at the foot of management who clearly had not enough skilled waiting or wine educated staff or staff ( plenty at front reception standing about ) but not enough working tables .Instead of tables of guests being let down Caleb rose to the challenge. Calm, professional, industrious...I hope Constantia Glen, you appreciate Caleb because this review could easily have been 2 stars....

Laughter, glasses being filled and delicious food being served
Did the 6 white wine tasting. The smells dancing in your nose… banana, oak…

RANGA you rock. We shared everything he knew about wine and what I know. Amusing as the youngsters did not know grapes are all white and the grape skin Color’s the wine red. Rose with its pink Color actual from red grapes.
Sauvignon - block on the top right where the sun gently ripens the grapes.. 1 hour and few minutes every day. The Chenin blanc with an oak wooded smell but smooth. Riesling a bit too tart for me.
Then the JUSTIN van Wyk trio.. Olivia Grace just spectacular (a word that so well describes) label very well thought out.

Then the flammkuchen smells drifting up your nostrils …black truffle shavings, mushrooms and onions. Im off the opinion its perhaps the best in town..

Shadows hang low over the valley, the Green vineyards lazing in the cool afternoon.
Time to leave this beauty …
So long
My best & fav wine farm by far..

My wife had chosen Constantia Glen for their menu as we planned on having lunch while there. The winery itself is lovely and the view over the vineyards is beautiful. They offer nice indoor and outdoor seating areas, and a good menu with choices for everyone.
We had a tasting and a light lunch. The food was good, and we enjoyed the wines too.
The only reason I couldn't rate Constantia Glen higher was the service. Our waitress was very slow. They don't give you all four wines at once, she poured the whites, then came back when we were done to pour the reds. And we waited and waited to order, then for the wines, then for the other wines. Our lunch ended up taking nearly two hours.
Lastly, I don't think of myself as a wine snob, but doing a tasting at a winery, I didn't expect to have the red wines poured into the glasses of white we had just finished : (
We enjoyed our stop at Constantia Glen, but it could have been even better.
