Went here for breakfast and then stayed late whilst consuming wine and bubbly. The service, ambiance and food is of the best.

We had heard rave reviews about this restaurant and decided it was a "must visit" while in Cape Town. We had come from Kalk Bay and were dressed like Timmy Tousist when we arrived at this posh estate.

We are locals and choose the Bistro time and again! The food is of excellent quality without fail - breakfast or lunch. The complimentary honey brioche is to die for. Great and friendly service. Awesome place for active kids who can run to their heart's content on the lawn.

This is a stunning breakfast spot on the Steenberg Estate in Constantia. They are open from 09h00 and the service is fabulous and the food even better. From the complimentary honey drenched brioche to the eggs benedict I was delighted – both with the presentation and the taste (I haven’t tasted such a perfect Hollandaise sauce in a while). There...

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.
