I had the salmon and it was cooked to perfection! The steak was excellent as well as the accompanied salad. The glass of wine included crowned the whole experience !! It is such a great atmosphere and setting,I would really recommend it.

Rust en Vrede has become a favourite of ours and a "must go there" on every visit to South Africa. The meal and service were superb as usual. From the very first glass of champagne whilst sitting outside watching the sunset I knew we were in for yet another perfect evening. The salmon, the karoo lamb, the aubergine bake were... More

Been there for wine tasting and lunch. Unfortunately, restaurant was closed but we got two dish options at the winery that was delicious: salmon and steak. All of them cooked perfectly! Wine tasting was amazing and the lady serving us was very friendly. Only one weird thing is that one of the waiters used to put a wine from one... More

We had a group of 9 couples that had prearranged a 6 course wine pairing dinner. The staff was amazingly attentive, the food was out of this world, and the wine pairings were spot on. It doesn't get better than this.

Food is always good here but be prepared for tiny quantities. Plenty of bread rolls flying around to fill up on but I wish they would give more vegetables, not just a tea spoon of puréed veg. Over fussy. Using a napkin to avoid the sparkle from drinking water touching your hand is ridiculous, so is pushing the chair into... More

The visit was based on high recommendations. The venue is stunning. Unfortunately we were there on a rainy day but I can imagine how it must be on a sunny day outside. The menu is "abriged" and offers fish or steak. A glass of wine included in the price was of the highest quality and promted an order for more.... More

Six course tasting menu, high standard. Excellent wine pairing, both the food and the wine grew when combined. Cozy restaurant for a rainy and cold winter evening.
