We have been coming to 96 for many years now. Last night we visited the restaurant with some friends who had a Groupon voucher. There was a good choice of starters, mains and desserts, and the food was really delicious, specially the pork fillet and the venison which we hadn't tried before.. As always the food arrived quickly and the... More

This was our 2nd visit to the restaurant and we were not disappointed. I was a bit apprehensive as we went on a Groupon voucher and I thought that maybe they were struggling but this is not the case - the restaurant was full as always. Service excellent so good to see the restaurant is doing well - the Groupon... More

Excellent food. Steaks done to perfection, a delicious duck pie and fabulous dessert platter coupled with attentive service make this a great restaurant for a weekend lunch. Nothing cheap on this menu and the price of wine considering it is in the heart of the winelands restricts ones visits to special occasions.

The spring roll and pork belly starters are both the best thing I've ever had. The signature beef steak with the pepper sauce was really really good as well. And of course you HAVE to get the FMC wine if you come here - like drinking sunshine!

We had eaten here before for lunch and it was ok, but this time my wife and I came for dinner on a Groupon special and I was blown away by the quality and value we got for what we paid, for me the best quality for value ever on a Groupon meal. I commend the restaurant on offering great,... More

My wife and I visited the 96 Winery road restaurant in 2015 for dinner and due to the good memories we popped in for lunch on our way home. Glad to say that the food is still very tasty supported by professional and friendly service. Although the restaurant has an extensive wine list and cellar I was welcome to bring... More

We were here for a wedding reception and the restaurant could not have done more to keep everyone happy. If you are looking for a place that covers all the bases then this is a great place as they have a chapel (very nice) and accommodation in the grounds as well. Serving 50 people simultaneously is tough on a good... More

Took our staff here for lunch and had a great time and an awesome meal. This was personally my 4th visit and never been dissapointed. Friendly and good service, great wine, beautiful setting and the best steak in the Winelands.
