We enjoyed the fine wine and vineyard setting of this estate.. The food was well presented but in our opinion just lacked a little seasoning... could have packed more punch in flavour... form the look we thought the food would taste as good

Returned after a year and the food and service was awesome. We ate line fish and venison, great flavours and generous portions. Perfectly accompanied by their red wine Cristina which they graciously replaced with our first choice of wine. Beautiful view from the restaurant's enclosed patio despite it being winter. Will be back

My wife and I had dinner here recently and absolutely loved it. Buitenverwachting is a very generous place and all the extras that accompany your meal left me very impressed. Together we had the fillet, pork belly and steak tartare and each dish was excellent. A nice touch was that when my starter arrived, my wife got a small "starter"... More

The kids came to visit for the weekend being Father's Day. It was a very cold and wet Saturday and I suddenly felt like a visit to a wine farm in the area where we could have a light lunch. Not knowing Buitenverwachting but curious to experience a new place I made a lunch reservation. From the time we drove... More

Cool, wintery day in the winelands of Constantia. Leaves on the wines turning shades of yellow and orange and yet still so much greenery around. My friend and I were seated at a table looking out over the gardens and quickly served our wine - Corder Estate wine which we enjoyed. We shared an antipasti platter as a starter -... More
