Recommendation from Twice Guesthouse (June 2015). Delicious food, great ambience, cosy courtyard - fire burning bright. Visited again for my birthday - another good experience, however, the food took some time coming from the kitchen, but we were served nachos and sour cream while we waited. Will definitely visit again.

Had a butternut and chicken salad - it was a pleasant surprise with varying textures and flavours :) as always, the portions are generous and the atmosphere bustling. The staff is also very friendly.

We came in for lunch as we had just finished the visit to the Museum Village. Since it is bit out of church (the main ) street we were doubtful about quality. The result was a very pleasant surprise!. Food was fresh and of a very good quality. The only drawback was the time it took to get the food... More

A lovely venue with just a little bit of zaniness thrown in by way of the decor. I'd the restaurant as contemporary almost arty bistro setting providing outstanding food and wonderful wine. Does it for me every time !!

5 Rynveld is one of few places you can go to late at night and still get something great to eat or just have a drink with a friend and be treated equally well. We've visited many times and have always felt special, were treated like we're old friends and enjoyed every minute. You can sit outside or in one... More

We ate here twice as we were so impressed with it the first time around. The bobotie is superb and the choice of wine is great. The staff are young, very friendly and most helpful. I wasn't sure what wine I wanted so I described what I liked and the waiter found a match for me- it was delicious! The... More

No! Why change a winning recipe. Your burgers and chip options were the best in Stellenbosch. Why have you change your service presentation. Not happy.

Had the famous Elvis Presley burger here before and its really nice; nothing like bacon, banana and peanut butter. The atmosphere is also cosy and ideal for the winter ahead!

The food for such a small place is good. I have been here a number of times and enjoyed the steak, chicken dishes and the burgers. The chocolate fondant is a great way to finish off the meal. I did find it a little cool inside in winter but still a nice atmosphere.

We were part of a large group but had booked well in advance so our arrival was not unexpected. Our drinks order was taken promptly but took an age to arrive. Our food order was then taken and we waited, and we waited... An hour and a half after placing the order our food began to arrive randomly. So slow... More
