Location and contact

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..

Jonkershuis is for food and nature lovers. It is a wonderful place where you can eat great food and marvellous wine. You can enjoy a spectacular view of the vineyard and the beautiful scenery of Constantia. We had the best experience there.

Constantia is full of excellent places, the Jonkershuis being one of them. We had dinner on a cold evening in March and everything was perfect. The waiter suggested to share the sample plate (bobotie, lamb and chicken) and it was a great idea. Kudu carpaccio...More
