Had a last minute lunch at Bodega on a lovely Saturday afternoon. They were surprisingly quiet and we got a table in the sun on the terrace. Perfect for a chilly winter's day. Our server, Faye, was absolute wonderful. From explaining the Dornier Malbec 2014 wine in terms of colour and tasting notes, without a prompt, to being so confident... More

Went with a group from work at to celebrate a delivery. Excellent tapas and a log fire on a cold winters afternoon. What a great way to end the week. The food was very well prepared and a good variety which went excellently with the wine.

Went for the seafood special platter. We arrived early, 12-15pm, and received good service with a really special seafood platter for two. Other guests who arrived later waited ages for their food, many leaving without eating. Maybe a bad day. People with children sit on one side of the verandah and other people on the opposite side. Many like this... More

I had organised a set menu lunch (3 courses at R300 pp plus a mandatory 10% service charge) for a group of ten; I was asked to pay up front in order to confirm the reservation, and this I did. The menu choices were well thought out and our party really enjoyed the starters, which were a trio of soups... More

I had one of their Flammkuchens from the menu with a wine pairing that was recommended. My waiter was Walter- a well trained waitron who knew the history of the wine farm as well as the wine and food pairings.

What a beautiful place. The most gorgeous setting in the mountains. We sat on the terrace which had a lovely atmosphere and made the most of the views. The food and service were very very good. Average price for a wine estate. It will not break the bank. I will certainly go there again.

Had the best fish cakes ever at Bodega. Liked the venue so much that we used the Dornier Homestead as the setting for our wedding and reception.

My family and I dined here during March 2016 for a special anniversary. The Estate is set against a backdrop of picturesque mountains and somehow it’s very easy to feel transported to another slower pace of life. The menu has some interesting and eclectic options. All in all the food was very tasty - I ordered the Filet, but there... More

We visted Bodega at Dornier a couple of months ago and had an excellent tapas fest!!!!! We enjoyed it so much we wanted to go again. This time (perhaps change of chef) the tapas were mini hamburgers. deep fried mushrooms, mini onion rings and something which tasted like calamari, with naturally some bread slices and a doll of humus? spicy...

We went for a late Sunday Tapas Lunch at Dornier - beautiful views, attentive front of house waitron and delicious tapas for two which looked small, but left us more than satisfied. Chill music and lovely vibe was part of this lovely Sunday afternoon spent at Dornier. We will be back.
