This time we went for dinner with a group of 8. All our food was superb and the pepper tastes better as anywhere else. We like the consistent and superb quality. Well done yet again!

After being highly recommended to visit this restaurant, I was left in complete disappointment. The order was taken with our choice of wines, one starter was a thick prawn soup, which was not freshly cooked, the carpachio you can not go wrong with. The wine arrived just before the main course, after asking 3 times! Then the main course I... More

We went for my fiancee's birthday dinner. The service was excellent with a very knowledgeable waiter which is always great. The extended wine list is a pleasure with really rare gems available for every taste. The food was spectacular. Presentation of the starters was elegant and the main courses were really delicious full of big flavors with quality ingredients. Will... More

We had a wonderful evening. All was perfect, but the Wagyu was over rated and the normal steaks was far better and much more affordable. So don't get wowed by the wagyu and just go for the normal steak and you will be amazed.

My wife and I visited for lunch, the pork belly starter was crispy and tasty, as was the prawn and calamari starter. We had the pepper fillet steak for main which was outstanding and tasty . Service was attentive and prompt. We sat outside on the lovely cool veranda . The restaurant has defiantly moved up a notch since our... More

Cosy and has elements of a good English bar. Food was great with the chips, meat and pork belly the stars of the lunch. No one had an average meal - we all loved our food.

96 Winery is about one dish for us – the flaming peppercorn filet, and each year we trek back a couple of times for more of the same. There are other delicious choices on the menu, but we seldom get as far as choosing one of them! I noticed that SA grown Wagyu beef had crept on this year, and... More

Was recommended this restaurant by the people at Webersburg wineries. Arriving in the dark can be a little confusing if driving yourself but that is where any criticism ends. The service and food are both excellent. I had the steak on the bone (450g) and asked for it medium rare. They certainly know how to cook a steak, it was... More

My wife and I are in South Africa every year and whenever we are in the Cape region the "96 Winery Road Restaurant" is a must for us. Food and Service are terrific there. It's a place to be and we will get back as often as possible. The quality there did not change for years, the flambéed pepper steak... More

Came in from recommendations and wasn't disappointed all good and was superb. Our waitress was excellent and well informed on dishes. As we hadn't booked we ate outside, not a problem as a good night was enjoyed by all. Must visit if in area.
