Lovely wine farm, delicious wine but the reception we received was cold and the ladies working there were unnecessarily rude. Despite having a conversation over the phone; on arrival we were told they actually don’t accommodate groups. Me and a group of majority black friends had a racist experience.

It was my friend and I’s first time at Buitenverwachting. We were so excited to experience the farm and the wine tasting, but unfortunately the service was below par. Our server was completely disinterested and seemed miserable. Every wine was explained so bluntly and she seemed annoyed to be serving us. Ironically, she was a completely different person to the table of foreigners next to us. Disappointing experience, as we did enjoy the wines and the scenery.

2nd time here (for dinner) and so good to be back. We were a party of six.

Cuisine superb, wines exquisite. Delightful decor and a real ambiance to excite your taste buds!

Our engaging waiter Scholl (apologies if I've got the spelling wrong there) was great and was bang in tune with our humour level! He explained all the dishes wonderfully which made them all the more appetizing. He was always on hand if needed but allowed us space to enjoy our evening without interruption.

If you are a discerning foodie this place this is a must for you!

Several of the Constantia wineries are heaving with tourists in season, being so close to Cape Town. Not the case with Buitenverwachting when we arrived, although the name means "beyond expectation"; visiting after lockdown restrictions were eased, we were pleased to find a quiet and friendly atmosphere, very pleasant wine, and an all-round good experience. To go with the wine selection we ordered a cheeseboard plus smoked trout pate, which were excellent, and left with bottles of their Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer - although almost any of the wines on offer will please.

thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon here. We deliberately picked this vineyard because its one of the less touristy ones. we enjoyed the 5 wine tasting and paired it with a sharing plater. The lady that served us was lovely and friendly and knowedgable. The platter was fabulous and was perfect to allow us to enjoy the wine. The garden with a large tree in the center is beautiful and after our tasting we bought a bottle of wine and borowed a picnic blanket and spent a beautiful afternoon in the shade of the tree sipping wine and drinking in the beautful place that Buitenverwaching is.

We discovered Buitenverwachting while exploring neighbouring estates.
Tranquil setting, good deli and airy restaurant, beautiful lawns for picnics and a relaxed, chic tasting area.
Be aware...restaurant kitchen closes early. We arrived just after 3pm and were too late for ordering meals.
Various platters available at the wine tasting area.

We recently did a wine tasting at Buitenverwachting and ordered some platters to go with it. The lady serving us was VERY friendly. Unfortunately we got the impression that the wine tastings are no longer as good as they used to be, with less information on the wines. The platters are nice but not great and expensive. Adrienne, we miss you, your picnics and your food!

Every time my wife and I visit Cape Town it has become compulsory that we spend an afternoon at Buitenverwachting with one of their fantastic picnic baskets. The setting is gorgeous, the food in the baskets excellent and plentiful, the service is first class and the wine eminently quaffable. I would like to say a big thank you to the ladies who make this such an enjoyable experience and we will see you again during our next trip.

It is very easy to do a number of wineries in the Constantia area in a day trip from Cape Town. Our first stop was this winery. Very hard to pronounce correctly. The setting is very beautiful with old Dutch buildings with thatch roofs. The pourings were very generous. Butien blanc and Christen Red are favorites. We were the only visitors and the staff could not have been nicer. We left a nice tip. This is more of an artisanal kind of place than the larger wine estates such as Graff-Delaire. This is a fine dining restaurant here, but we did not have dinner. Great stop for wine lovers. Right near Klein Constantia wine estate. Easy to do both in half a day.

For the family with young kids (or even just a quiet time under the trees) this place is ideal. Buy a cheeseboard and a bottle of wine (or a G&T) and chill out at this lovely spot in Constantia.
