The scenery is really pretty and the wine is first class but the experience of having lunch here left a lot to be desired. The main restaurant was closed and we had lunch on the verandah. My salad was over sauced and drenched in dressing. My companion had the burger which was grisly and grey. We did address our misgivings... More

I came here for my birthday and we did a huge wine tasting and chocolate pairing. The place accommodated a large group and had prepared our own tasting room where we had our own lecturer type host. He was knowledgeable and brilliant in his showing of the tasting. He explained everything articulately and the whole day was brilliant. Thank you!

You drive and drive through the wine farm to get to the tasting venue and scenery is spectacular. I took an Uber there, and on the way back I walked all the way to the entrance to take it all in. Sprawling acres of trees, vineyard, rolling hills and a horse paddock. The wines are mostly above average and the... More

I cannot speak highly enough of Buitenverwachting. The main restaurant is world class and the food is exceptionally good. The wines are simply stunning and I wish we could get them more easily here in the UK. I am a huge fan of their Sauvignon Blanc which when chilled is the crispest, yummiest Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted. Their... More

this wine farm disappointed: the wines are average and not as sophisticated and smooth as one would like. the wine guide was simply doing it AS HER JOB and not a passion. no particular ambience, lovely setting though...

With 5 friends, I experienced my first picnic lunch today - and what a delightful one it turned out to be. From the time Adrienne took my booking to sitting down under the oaks and Norfolk pines on manicured lawns and being waited on my smiling women determined that we were going to have a good time - and we...

went at 5 when they were shutting down the coffee shop and wine tasting which is in a courtyard that doesn't look as nice as some other wine tasting places. The coffee shop looks over a beautiful lawn between historic farm buildings with magnificent trees so full marks for that location. Waited around till 630 pm when dinner was served... More

The picnic basket contained many lovely goodies, brought to you whilst you sit in the pretty garden. Had a lovely bottle of white, and there's a coffee shop on site too. Far less touristy and therefore nicer than the nearby Groot Constantia.
