Always a favourite, starters of Calamari steak and Camembert followed by the most delicious Fillet Hollande's sauce with peppercorns and flaming in the pan whilst being served. Cooked to perfection. Excellent wine list, we settled for the Webersberg Cab 2013 which was ready for drinking for such a young wine. Service tops, log fires burning, what more could you ask... More

The steaks here are to die for, up there with the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the world. Pricey but worth every cent.

Using a Groupon promotion we had dinner at 96 Winery Road on a rainy cold evening. We did not expect much as past experience with using promotions had been patchy. But we found the ambience, service and food quality to be excellent. The salmon main was the hit of the evening as was the creme brûlée. A welcome surprise was... More

Pleasantly surprised at 96 Winery Rd. Service was impeccable even though we were using a voucher. All dishes were very tasty. My venison was a little tough but sooooo tasty. We were a party of ten but that did not prevent them from producing amazing service and food. Will definitely recommend. Keep it up guys. May just visit again before... More

Enjoyed lunch in a cosy corner next to the fireplace. Portions reasonable for a fine dining restaurant. Food very well prepared and presented. Had the pork fillet which was extremely good. Service sharp and efficient.

I didn't know what exactly to expect. Once we entered the restaurant, I really liked the ambiance. It has a homely, laid back Winelands feel to it in my opinion. The food was really spectacular. Everything was well presented and the meal was indeed a taste sensation. It was a truly enjoyable experience and I'm so glad that we gave... More

The service was outstanding. The beef tartar even better! The steak was excellent however the pepper sauce could have had more pepper. The duck and cherry pie (their specialty) is worth the trip alone but beware, it is very rich!

My partner and I went for supper. We had the venison and the duck pie. The service, food and ambience is really something to behold. This restaurant is not inexpensive but well worth the experience.

What a super lunch with great friends. Our friends arranged a Groupon and what a fabulous menu, such a variety of food....to suit everyone. We all had the Calamari starter, excellent and very different, I had stuffed Pork Fillet with Risotto, absolutely fabulous, others had Rump, all said excellent. All in all staff, food and company first class.

We stopped in off the cuff - hoping for a table. The restaurant was busy (late Sunday lunch time) but a table was available and we were settled quickly. Wine ordered (menu offered several reasonable options) and poured so we gave our attention to the food. As we were going out for dinner it needed to be something light and... More
