We had lunch on Sunday at Neethlingshof Restaurant - a beautiful wine farm near Stellenbosch. The buffet lunch looked delicious but as a result of my being allergic to garlic my options of the meat selection wasn't great. We ordered from the menu (and even so the choice of food without garlic was very limited). The chicken I ordered was... More

The restaurant offers an a-la-carte and buffet option. For a Sunday lunch this is the best of both worlds. We opted for the a-la-carte menu. The dishes are traditionally South African and prepared perfectly. Despite a very busy day for the restaurant, we sat outside and enjoyed the winter sun. The service was very good and the setting beautiful.

Our waitress was good, patient and friendly. She was unfortunately let down by the quality of the food. Our liver starter was one crushed liver swimming in a tangy watery tomato relish. My wife's burger main comprised of a warmed up frozen burger patty and woeful accompaniments. On the whole disappointing given the location

My cousin brought me here as he has lived in Cape Town for many years and considers this his favorite winery. The food we had was delicious . They were very sensitive to my Gluten free request. The wine pairings were spot on. Service was wonderful from staff that has been there many years. Location and buildings are old and... More

the Neethlings hof is an old favourite of ours. Nothing better than on a spring or autumn day to sit outside and enjoy the setting. This time we weren't so lucky but inside it was cosy. Sharon is a star, she looked after us well and was a great source of information. The menu is varied but has some real... More

Dear Hanns B, Thank you for coming to visit us again at Neethlingshof. You are correct that not much can beat the setting from the front stoep of the Manor House when the weather is fine.

A lovely family lunch on a warm summers day. The linefish of the day was perfect and paired with the Neethlingshof Unwooded Chardonnay, I could not have been happier. The menu offers some authentic local food choices too, in particular the Cape Malay Babotie which was a hit at the table. Very friendly informed staff, and a picturesque setting under... More

We did not have anything planned for Sunday and decided to drive out Stellenbosch way. Remembering that a friend had once told me about Neethlingshof, I decided to make it our destination and booked a table for 2. Driving up the tree-lined lane and looking at the surroundings, I felt that we had arrived at a place that has something... More

This is the perfect place to eat whilst in the Stellenbosch area, especially after tasting their amazing wines. The food is unpretentious and the service is great. Lovely views of the gardens and mountains can be enjoyed by sitting outside
