Went with the wife-to-be for a unplanned dinner. It was a wonderful experience, with good friendly service and delicious pasta. The prices aren't cheap,but the quality isn't either.

We dined here one evening with friends. It was a very friendly place serving African cuisine. The service was great and so was the food

These days, it's not crowded at all. We are often the only diners there. I cannot comment on the menu, as we only ever order the Bitterballen (which is very tasty). However, and... More

Fairly traditional African food, but quite delicious and with an outstanding service. The waiter gave us a night to remember with fantastic service and interesting conversations.

Just as other people already have written on this site, our experience is try to stick to "simple dishes" (bistro food): concerning price/quality these are OK. Service is friendly.

A really interesting menue that covers a lot of tastes - the burger fans get their deal, the pasta lovers theirs, and then - the zebra, ostrich, and whatever wild game that is not protected, AND the Xhosa kitchen, which proved to be tasty, not overspiced, and - acuallty with some modifications, even veggie friendly.

We ordered a starter only to be informed that managent forgot to order and therefore it was not available. We were offered other starters which we declined. We decided to try the home made beef burger. We received our food and it was well... More

The simple starters,the chicken livers, crumbed mushrooms, YUM YUM YUM, best food we had in Stellenbosch. In our experience if you avoid the expensive menu items and go with the bistro food, Binnenhof is fantastic. J-P and his staff are friendly, welcoming and efficient, for us the best service in the city. Nice wine selection too. We were reassured by... More
