We tried lunch here. We were seated in a courtyard. But had to leave soon after because a smoker sat on n next table and lit up. So we went to street tables. We were told smokers would not trouble us here. I had mussels. Some tasted great. Others tasted distinctly off. So I ate no more. An apple tart... More

Stumbled across Binnenhof and was attracted by the selection of game on offer. Service was very good. The kudu steak was well cooked but the salad had a little too much dressing and was also a bit boring. Coffee was also quite good. More than happy with my choice and would easily go back again. I thought the price was... More

We didn't have high hopes but were faced with limited options on a Monday evening and the restaurant was practically empty when we arrived. Just one other couple seated in the small rear courtyard, which was poorly lit and looked like it could do with a clean and spruce up. My curry was Ok, nothing special, afraid my husband couldn't...

We had not booked anything in Stellenbosch so walked around on a Monday evening only to find many restaurants were full - amazing for a Monday ! We eventually found the Binnehof - which does have an inside courtyard - and were seated outside on a beautiful warm evening. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient so things look good....

Lovely thick white linen tablecloths and napkins put this restaurant in another class. The music was well-chosen and played softly in the background so that conversation was easy. The chef was very obliging in composing a delicious vegetarian dish. It would be nice if there were an interesting variety of vegetarian/vegan dishes on the menu as one does not like... More

Carpaccio was still frozen,Mozzarella was dry and... More
