Amazing interior and exterior showcasing the history of South Africa and Stellenbosch. Brilliant food like always and friendly welcome by staff. I would recommend booking ahead as you probably won't get in otherwise and book for one of the outside courtyards. Keep up the awesome work and special mention to the chef for easily the biggest and best steak in... More

We sat in the courtyard where you could get a great feed for R80. However I opted for the Seafood Platter(special of the day with grilled Kingklip- a national treasure, and calamari, prawns, mussels and salad) and my husband had the Linefish(Kingklip!) The service was friendly and professional, thank you Lorraine! Colourful bougainvillea and other flowering creepers adorned the walls... More

Having visited here last year, we thought we'd try it again. We'd seen the menu boards outside in the afternoon and thought we'd select from there, however, menu roulette took over when the waiter arrived! We had some delicious steaks and wine. Food was attractive and tasty, the ambience was peaceful and the setting was clean and calm. We enjoyed... More

My husband were in South Africa during the Rider Cup and my husband is a huge fan. The Big Easy was a few blocks away from our guest house so we spent the evening there. The food was great, the wine wonderful and the ambience was beautiful. Our favorite part was our waiter, Gregory. He was so attentive and friendly... More

As Ernie Els has a share in this restaurant it is advisable to book especially for dinner. Many different rooms to eat in together with outside as well. Memorabilia from the big man are on many walls. Nice ambiance with efficient and welcoming staff. We were there for dinner as it was within walking distance of our B and B.... More

I often visit this establishment. Sometime only for a coffee, other times for a glass of wine. Last night I had the cheese platter with some awesome cheeses. The platter had a nice balance to it and was enough for 2 people as we also ordered droe wors and biltong as a snack. I had the sea-food platter last week... More

Come for the food. Check out the Ernie Els memorabilia. His favorite item on the list is the burger. You won't be disappointed.
