We tried Sixteen82 for the first time, as we were keen to try the tapas menu instead of going out for a full dinner. What a great experience - the decor is unique and energizing, the seating comfortable and tables not too close together, and the tapas very interesting and tasty. All dishes were beautifully presented, and our waitron described... More

We have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is casual, very relaxed atmoshere, good service and excellent food. We had calamari, prawns, pork belly, you name it we had it. Very well plated, and an excellent wine, or sparkling wine to go with it. Loved it, will be back for sure!

Visited the Bistro for a birthday celebratory lunch. The booking process is a breeze and different options were explained well. The actual place is lovely and the food 👌🏼 My only criticism was the fact that even though some of my friends (not all) wanted to do the wine tasting, we were restricted on siting together on the patio.

We had lunch in the Bistro 1682 at the Steenberg vineyard. You cannot fail to be impressed by the size and elegance of the building and the tasteful decoration.

Description
Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since.

An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands.

The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides fine dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit.

Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, love to create food which is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness. "My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels to Thailand I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. Love. I cook with love and my food is love."

Internationally, Bistro Sixteen82 has been recognised in the list of 20 of the World’s Best Winery Restaurants by Canada’s renowned Wine Access magazine. Locally, listings included prominent mentions in Fleur du Cap’s Top 100 Places; Eat in Cape Town; and EAT OUT’s Best Bistros list.
