    Amazing wine experience with special athmosphere and service
    We had been here twice with friends and in scope of a cycling tour with integrated wine tasting. Both times the service, athmosphere and quality of food/wine were outstanding!!! Especially waiter Martin made a great job with all his passion and kind costumer orientation. Ever again!
    Dear Fabian, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and that you gave us another try. Martin is a gem and we are very fortunate to have him as part of our team. We hope that it will continue and we can welcome you back soon. Best wishes, Tiaan

    A gem of a vineyard 💎🍷
    We did the wine tasting with a cheese platter and oh my god the whole experience was incredible! There was a pinotage festival going on so the place was a hub of music, wine and food and sadly not many tables available, however the manager found us some space in the cellar room which sounds a bit gloomy but actually it was perfect, we sat amongst the bottles, it was nice a cool and the sommelier was fantastic, she was very passionate about the vineyard. We were only staying in Stellenbosch for 2 nights on our way back from doing the garden route so we could only choose a couple of vineyards but we were so glad we picked Lanzerac!
    Dear mjpither, We are delighted to read your review. Thank you for the fantastic feedback. It really makes us so proud of the team when we read such great reviews. I am happy to hear that we managed to find you a table in the end and that you could enjoy your time with us. We are also very happy that you picked us and we hope that we can welcome you back soonest. Best wishes, Tiaan

    Beautiful getaway
    Lanzerac is heaven on earth tucked away beneath the mountains and vineyards of Stellenbosch. From the moment you make your way up the iconic tree- lined driveway you are transported into another time. Just beware, you'll never want to go back to reality.
    Dear Jonathan, Wow, what a wonderful review. Thank you for taking the time to write such beautiful words about your experience. We are delighted that you had such a great experience. We hope to welcome you back soon. Best wishes, Tiaan and the Lanzerac Team

    Best Scones in Stellenbosch
    Lanzerac Deli is one of the top places on our itinerary when family and friends come to visit Stellenbosch. Particularly for their scones - the best scones I have ever tasted, soft on the inside and crumbly on the outside. Also a beautiful setting and it is lovely to explore the wine farm
    Dear Georgia, Thank you for the kind review and for the continued support. The scones are a winner, made from the freshest, tastiest ingredients and most importantly, love. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, Tiaan and the Lanzerac Team

    Fantastic Introduction to the first winemaker to bottle the Pinotage
    Such a lovely experience wine tasting the Jonkershoek selection of Merlots, Syrahs, Can Sauv and of course Pinotage. Shout out to Jerome who took the time to go through the history of each of the wines! Cebo took us on a tour of the wine cellars and the production process. Must must visit in the Stelenbosch

    Beautiful views, good wine and great service!
    We visited Lanzerac as part of the Vinehoppers wine tour and had a great time. Lovely views, good wine and above all great service! Our server was incredibly knowledgable and told us the story of the vineyard and added a personal touch by teaching us some Xhosa words. A great start to our vineyard hopping, would definitely visit again!

Stopped for a late breakfast at the Deli that served among other, an all dat breakfast. This place serves the best crossants in town and the ingredients are all locally produced and farm fresh. despite being very busy, Manager, Le Roux made certain that all patrons were well attended to. Our waiter, Rosemary was extremely knowledgable of their products and was attentive throughout our stay. The restaurant serves a wide selection of food and carers for every need. Would highly recommend this exquisite restaurant in a perfect environment with outstanding mountain views.

Arrived 6 pm ,booked in at the Deli,sat till 10 mins then had to attract the attention of one of the servers to ask for a drink ,then 10 mins later we had to attract them again for menus ,and yes we had to attract them to put the order in I did say to the guy who looked as if he was in charge ,we’ve waited ages here ,his reply was Oh Really .no apology . When the food arrived it was delicious,but we were disappointed with the lack of attention ,that needs some work ,we’d been two years ago and loved it ,so I’m not sure we’d go back if we visit the area again,we did leave a tip but that was purely because the food was very good

We had lunch at the Taphuis before proceeding to the Tasting Room for a Wine and Chocolate pairing.
Lunch: The setting is incredibly beautiful and the restaurant truly caters to the needs of the patrons. The service we received from Francis was top notch. The food was exceptional. We ended up tasting each other's food as we were raving so much about our individual meals!! The wine was also very good. The value for money was really great.
Wine and chocolate pairing: The service from Emmanuel was fantastic. The wine and chocolate pairing was insightful and super delicious!! The entire experience was fantastic!!

We last visited three years ago and we’re so pleased that on our return to South Africa we made a determined effort to visit again to enjoy a light lunch with wine tastings.

The setting is lovely and our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable on the wines, but the quality of the cheese and meat boards were disappointing compared to our last visit so we are not sure we would return.

Cannot remember what we paid three years ago, but it’s probably a case of management cutting quality and quantity in order to keep prices down.

Dear Linda, Thank you for the feedback on your recent visit to the Deli and Tasting Room. I am very sad to hear that you didn't find the quality of the meat and cheese boards up to standard. The meat and cheese boards are close to being our flagship item for sale and everyone loves it. Thank you again for the feedback, we have looked into it and will ensure they are up to their normal standard in future. We really do hope that you will return. Best wishes, Tiaan Lategan

Having previously been to Lanzerac and receiving wonderful service from one of their staff, I elected to go there once again for a wine tasting with some friends from Cape Town. After being seated for roughly 25 minutes, we still hadn't received service, and the waitress who had seated us actually walked passed us after having finished her shift. From what I was made to understand, the tasting room/ wine tasting service closed at 17h30, and we had arrived maybe an hour before that time. As someone who has worked as a server, I understand that a customer walking in an hour before the closing of one's shift can be frustrating, but I would never leave them unattended if I knew that it was well before closing time. I was really disappointed, and we chose to leave before receiving service from anyone else. I probably won't go there again, because i could tell that there was a clear prejudice against my friends and I, compared to how other customers were treated. Incredibly disappointed that that type of treatment still happens.

Dear stormlondon2022, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and give feedback on your experience at The Deli and wine tasting. It is very disappointing to hear that this happened. The service you received was definitely not up to our standards and has been addressed with the relevant team. We hope to welcome you back to Lanzerac Hotel so that we can make up for this lack of service. Best wishes, Tiaan

We stayed at Lanzerac in August 2022 prior to heading to Cape Town and then up to Kruger for safari. It was a wonderful beginning to our trip. The stay is exceptional and service is beyond expectations. We enjoyed the cellar tour and wine tasting, especially because of our guides Emmanuel and Steve. Overall, food was good but we preferred Taphius to the Manor Kitchen for the more relaxed atmosphere.

The highlight of our stay was our time at the spa and massage. We highly recommend all guests utilize Lanzerac’s top notch spa!

15 years ago I used to work with a guy called Bertus in London.... and so to meet again in the fantastic Lanzerac Wine Estate was brilliant!

The attentive and informative Monique was right on her game as we drank a selection of 5 reserve wines and ate two superb platters of steak.

The grounds are amazing, the location as good as anywhere and the wine - well that wasn't bad either.

We booked a chocolate and wine pairing at the tasting room.
When we arrived, the lady told us that they weren't doing the chocolate and wine paring. After having mentioned that we booked and came especially for that, she called her manager, who finally gave us a table. Apparently, the chocolate arrived in the morning but the lady was not aware of it.
Once seated in this cool big tasting room (it was a very hot day), we enjoyed our five wines and chocolates. We had much explanation about the wines, but none about the chocolate.

Dear Verototoo, Thank you for giving us this valuable feedback. I am disappointed to hear that the communication within the team was so poor. I have addressed this with the team and the wines and chocolates has to be explained when a tasting is done. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the wines that was given to taste with the tasting.

We’d heard great things about Lanzerac, particularly because they’re known to have popularised pinotage wines.

The entrance is imposing and very beautiful so our first impressions were very good. However, the service was slow and we waited over 10 minutes to be greeted and shown to a table - despite us asking 2 members of staff who were walking around, and informing reception. It wasn’t particularly busy either so I’m not sure what was going on here.

We were able to choose 6 wines to try and sadly (and I appreciate this is personal taste) we didn’t enjoy any of them, so our visit was a little disappointing.

We opted to have a light lunch here and I ordered the vegetable soup. I was expecting a clear broth type soup, but what arrived was a heavy cream based soup. It was very tasty, but extremely heavy and I could only manage a quarter of it on a hot day - particularly as it was served with 2 pieces of melted cheese bread.
