Groot Constantia is loaded with history and was one of the first wine farms in South Africa, so walking up the tree lined avenue to the Jonkershuis restaurant for brunch took us back a couple of centuries. The restaurant, with a number of outdoor tables and a large indoor dining area, can be found in one of the historical buildings... More

We had lunch outside on a beautiful winters day. There was no wind and a crispness to the air. The restaurant was full. It is best to book. The pork belly was really good.

A perfect setting for supper on our last night. It took us no more 30 minutes in the car from the V&A Waterfront. We returned to the Groot Constantia for this restaurant having visited the estate for a wine tasting and tour the week before. A very good a la carte menu, but the Cape Malay curry platter is superb... More

After the cellar and wine tasting tour, this was a perfect end to the visit to Groot Constantia! We had a gorgeous meat board with a gorgeous GC Pinotage! This facility nestled in a wonderful vintage setting was all we desired at the end of the day. Gorgeous food paired with gorgeous wine and excellent service by Shadley (the waiter)... More

We visited this restaurant as a group of friends. Service was good, prices are okay but food wasn't amazing. We had 3 guests from overseas so I chose this restaurant as their menu has a range of Cape Malay food which I thought our guests would like to try. Two of them had the Malay Platter and really enjoyed it.... More

Went to go have breakfast at Jonkershuis and it was an absolute delight. Arrived at 11:25am for breakfast, their breakfast runs until 11:30am and they accommodated us and took our order for breakfast after placing our order our food arrived in a matter of minutes. The food was scrumptious and service was great. Stunning views and lovely venue for family... More

Jonkershuis Constantia is nestled in the historic core of the Groot Constantia Wine Estate next to the historic Manor House and surrounded by ancient oak trees. Your first impression is dominated by sweeping views across the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, down the valley to the enveloping coastline of False Bay.

This family owned and managed bistro boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining, to typical Italian village gatherings in their vine covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, were children can safely play reminiscent of a bygone era..

Partner Chris Coetzee, a father of two energetic young sons says, "Our close proximity and strong association with Iziko Museums is very important to me, it is a privilege for my children to be raised surrounded by so much of their heritage."
The rich cultural history of Jonkershuis lends a magical and old world charm to any occasion held at the beautiful Jonkershuis.

Tammy Botbyl (partner), "The strong legacy of history and tradition has inspired many couples to share their vows here and celebrate their union in style. It is a privilege for us to be part of the beginning of so many new legacies."
