We had family dinner her one night. The meat was delicious and the wine perfect. Great ambiance, like sitting in someone's country dining room.

This restaurant is owned by Ken Forrester, who's vineyards are just across the road. It has a relaxed atmosphere and serves quality food both inside and out on the terrace in Summer. Service is friendly and efficient. There's enough choice for everyone, including light meals, or something more substantial like gemsbok in Winter, plus a selection of local wines at... More

This has to be a family favorite. Always consistently good food and value for money. Their pork belly, mussels, and flambé fillet is a must. They cater for children and have lovely views from their garden. A truly enjoyable experience for all.

This is a very cosy restaurant at the outskirts of Stellenbosch- direction of Somerset-West. The food is very creative and made from fresh ingredients, the eine Menu is superb. What baffled me the most was the perfect and very friendly service - we had a little topic about one of our dishes, the team handled that in a perfect professional... More

If the owner dines in his own establishment it should be a good sign. It was! Ken F was in the house when we were there! This place is superb. Good food served well. Fillet steak was perfect and all trimmings delish. The Gypsy Red went extremely well and disappeared rapidly. Staff were knowledgeable and on point. The boss was... More

We booked and was told it was very full. The Manager called me back and said we are welcome to come but unfortunately he will have to seat us in the wine cellar. This was fantastic. We loved it. The staff and manager wonderful. The food and wine really good. Compliments to Chef, Manager and Staff

96 Winery Road has excellent meat dishes with friendly staff. First time ever a filet was sent back for being overcooked - no fuss from the kitchen to cook again. BUT we feel that the restaurant needs a facelift now.

Been there twice recently, first time with friends and enjoyed the food so much that I had to go back a second time take my husband. Both times I had the Hollandse fillet steak which was flambed at the table but next time I"m going to try the pork fillet wrapped in bacon. My husband ordered the big burger, and... More
