Light lunch turned into a full sample of Cape Malay dishes....Lamb curry, chicken curry, bobotie, sambal, yellow rice etc. All the favourites! Highly recommended peeps, especially for foreign visitors to get a taste of Cape Town! I paired it with the Groot Constantia Blanc de Noir which was light crisp and refreshing. Waiters were friendly, diligent and very accommodating. Paid... More

A visit to Groot Constantia is never a disappointment and lunch at Jonkershuis Restaurant is like going home and having a meal in the kitchen. Pure bliss. The menu covers most tastes, but here I like doing traditional. Our table was mostly of the same mind and what could be nicer on a cold, wet Saturday on a farm but... More

The food, service and all around location was fabulous. Quick and scrumptious food, view of the wine lands and space for the kid to play.

It was a windy and wet day and the open fires were well received. The service and food were both very good.

Nothing has changed since my last review (except the daily specials). The setting is great, the waiters helpful and informed and the food is great. I also always enjoy the extensive wine list at resonable prices.

Had a good meal here on a cold wintry day. Service was excellent and food palatable but I guess the location on one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa, gives it that extra edge. Prices were reasonable. Be sure to book a table as this venue makes it a prime choice amongst those who are visiting the Constantia... More

Took my friend for breakfast on her 60th birthday. Lovely setting by the fire. However the food was a tad dissapointing. Ordered the avo salsa with poached egg and one may expect the avo to be room temperature, but not freezing straight from the fridge on a really chilly morning! We had scrambled egg with sweetcorn which also was tepid... More

Taking grand-children anywhere can be a challenge, but part of life's duties. We are lucky both in our grand-children and in having allocation such as Groot Constantia to take them for lunch. Jonkershuis is one of our favourites for location, service and menu. The menu has something for everybody, the cost is exceptionally reasonable and the location is ideal for... More

We first visited Jonkershuis on a previous visit a couple of years ago and we wondered if it would still be up to the standard we remembered. It was! We started with the charcuterie platter which could have been a meal in it's self accompanied by local Sauvignon Blanc. Then we had fillet steaks done just as we like them... More

Description
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."
