The restaurant at Rijk’s just outside Tulbagh (also known as Governor’s) is a top class eatery. The service is friendly and efficient, the venue is beautiful and the food is great. And the boutique wines are in a league of their own.

This is really a smart place to visit. The restaurant is lovely and the staff helpful and friendly. I thought it would be good to have a simpler lunch menu . The food was well prepared and more than enough.

Lovely lunch venue with full views of vines and mountain. Visit on a sunny day to sit on the veranda. Food is excellent (limited menu but all prepared beautifully). The service was also very friendly and efficient.

The tasting room was understaffed and we only tasted 1 way before we left. Tasting venue has a cold decor that does not feel inviting or interesting. Was very disappointed with the experience as other highly recommend Rijk’s. Saronsberg and Lemberg offers way better experience.

Rijk's is so beautiful, the scenery, vineyards and beautiful sunset views. The staff are attentive and friendly. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, I especially liked the coffee machine in the room. They also serve very delicious breakfasts.
