Location and contact

One of the first signature chef restaurants in the Cape Winelands, the Jordan Restaurant with George Jardine brings top chef George Jardine’s brand of contemporary fare from city to country. The focus on the flavours of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients is evident from his kitchen vegetable and herb garden to wine barrel fish smoker and wood-fired oven. Expect smoky, smouldering country flavours in simple combinations on a contemporary plate – with signature smoked yellowtail, steamed Saldanha mussels, seared ribeye and springbok potroast. The main ingredient is enhanced by smoked garlic, aubergine, fennel, prune or potato puree. A trip to the walk-in cheese room to select your own board

Let me qualify the hidden first. From the Polkadraai (M12) road you have to take the Stellenbosch Kloof road which is very narrow and stretches for 6km before you get to this restaurant. The road surface is also not very friendly. You have to move...More

After very nice (though rather expensive) Jordan wineyards tour and cellar visit we enjoyed lunch at their restaurant. Starters were great and mussels even very innovative way served. Wines also fit perfectly. Main courses were OK, risotto somehow rather boring. But waiter forget our wines,...More

Went to Jordan restaurant for anniversary dinner. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Food delicious! The risotto with that fish dish was stunning! And the first time that I have ever received complimentary sparkling water at a restaurant - a thoughtful touch!

Enjoyed our lunch at Jordan’s yesterday. Ordered the mussels, hake and my girlfriend ordered the pork cheek and sirloin. Very well presented and beautiful pairing wines. We only missed the ‘wow’ experience.

Perfect for a lunch between tasting wines at the many different vineyards. Very nice staff with outstanding service. As a starter I recommend the gnocchi! For dessert they offer a wide selection of cheese.

No this is not really child friendly at all - the main restaurant is really 'fine dining' so nothing on the menu for youngsters. It has to be booked weeks in advance and as one of the award winning restaurant in SA it is... More

Hi, I am sure they are open for dinner on Friday but have no idea how busy they are. I suggest you give them a call.
