Bets meal we have had anywhere in the world - the tiny bite size tastings between courses were all a delight - everything was so artistically presented! Truly, an experience to carry for the rest of our lives.

This was probably one of the nicest meals I have ever had. The food was just exquisite but what made the dinner outstanding was the way the staff were so trained and synchronised. Everything from when we arrived to the last piece of chocolate was simply top notch - add to that a beautiful setting and you can't ask for... More

We enjoyed the six course dinner a lot, very exclusive, great and tasty dishes. However, we were even more impressed by the EXPERIENCE. We were basically greated on the way parking and then escorted. The perfect attention was kept at this level until the good bye with hand shake when leaving. Good job..! Take your time when there and book... More

Definetly of the top restaurants in the Wineland, if not the entire South Africa. Excellent food, top wines, and impeccable service. For the dinner you have three set menu options: a 4-course, a 6-course, and the Experience Menu. This is serious slow food. Rust en Vrede suggest that you reserve 4 - 5 hours for the Experience Menu. Our party... More

All the staff work well together. The food is something out of this world. The only negative thing I can mention was that I was slightly disappointed... More

I cannot speak too highly of our amazing experience at Rust en Vrede. From arrival the setting is stunning. The fabulous service starts there and doesn't end all evening. The young staff are friendly, helpful and professional. They all seem to work together smoothly and while there are a lot of them they are not obtrusive. We went for the... More
