Great service, food and deli to select from. We were a large family with 6 kids aging from 3 to 11. Both kids and adult menu had a nice selection. Our course included burgers, bobotie, pizzas and some other items all enjoyable. We did not have any dessert, but these looked divine and expected to be highly recommended.

We've always loved Hillcrest but this Sat past was amazing. We celebrated my mom's birthday with lunch outdoors while gazing at the surrounding mountains. I had worked closely with Purdon, the manager and the chef baked my mom the loveliest birthday cake. The willingness to help, the friendly staff and the idyllic setting makes it continuously one of our favorite... More

It was raining but we had already decided to stop here! Without the view and the outdoors, the food alone is average. Not everyone wants a big meal at lunchtime but with the cold weather perhaps they should add some specials even though it is not peak season. The wrap with vegetables was very tasty. Scones were generous but we... More

The extensive patio is definitly the favourite place to sit, with wonderful views over to the surrounding mountains. There is a good supply of large sun umbrellas to keep the heat of the sun off of you and the food. This is a very popular place for lunch or morning/afternoon snacks and service is sometimes slow, There is a good... More

On THIS particular trip, we decided to treat a couple of guests to scones for teatime. The scones (R45) were absolutely horrible so the experience was ruined. I felt very embarrassed to have to raise it with the staff (who consequently did nothing to explain or rectify the situation). In essence the scones were dry, overly-crumbly, dense and way too...

Beautiful setting! Food is great, service terrible. Staff stands talking and it took a long while to catch somebody's attention.

I really don't like coming here, I do so for my kids and that's not often. Your breakfast menu is terrible making the only dish with meat the most expensive. Kids menu for breakfast for kids is 1 item! Eish, how places like this survive I really don't know. You used to have a few other variaties re breakfast with... More

The Hillcrest berry farm has been around for a while and we keep on coming back. Their restaurant provides an amazing view of the Stellenbosch mountains, and the food compliments this. We had the homemade pie along with a cup of Mastertons coffee. They have a shop with a wide variety of jams, berry's, gift packs so you won't leave... More

This expensive restaurant/shop serves good coffees, scones, cakes and meals but their service is appalling! This afternoon (Workers Day) at about 4 pm we waited and waited for someone to serve us while sitting inside and had to complain to the supervisor to have our orders taken. After listening to the people at the table next door complaining about their... More
