Great location in center of Stellenbosch. Nice atmosphere. A bit pricey but the food is tasty. The servers are very nice. I would rate five stars but when I went to tip my waitress, I was informed that since I was paying with a credit card, she would only receive half of the tip while the owner takes the other... More

We were a group of six and we had a fantastic evening with great food and excellent wine. The service was also top notch.

I've been here several times now and can clearly say that the food is just bad. Even though it's the nicest place to eat in city you'll get disappointed by the kitchen. The service is really friendly but also really slow and unskilled. Would only recommend to go here for a glas of wine.

I've bene here a few time. The menu selection is standard South Africa fine dining - steak, chicken, fish, a couple of pastas. Lots of wines to choose from. The quality and taste are superior to most restaurants in the area. The ambience is romantic and cozy.

Local bubbly (Simonsig rosé) outside at the street cafe style tables was a relaxing start though it was busy and it took a while for us to be served. Followed by game steaks for the younger generation, cooked well, a disappointing sirloin for the missus and excellent lamb shank for me. Lovely bottle of local Merlot to wash it down,... More

Great selection of 6 wines - all at once so they can be compared . We bought tapas to go with them ,( it wasn't a pairing ) but with the notes supplied we felt we improved our tasting skills

I have been to the Wijnhuis before and find the selection of wines exciting, fascinating and well-priced. They have a broad menu with many wines availably by the glass and a great selection of local and imported wines. We accompanied a few glasses of wine with some of their Bruschetta which was a delicious, light snack. I find the atmosphere... More

We were lucky to get a table - one should book as it is always busy. The ambience is delightful - funky and chic yet comfortable with a section that looks good for fine dining. The service was excellent and the food good. The menu selection was wide but not too overwhelming. Will definitely go again.

A friendly welcome as you enter, good efficient service, varied menu with a good wine list. Have been dining and having afterwork drinks here for 15 years. Never fails to impress. Good to take business groups, tourists and meet the locals. Frankie the manager is a star!

Obviously popular with the students at Stellie, this modern restaurant ticks all the boxes. A great range of craft beers and wines with an extensive range of modern (but probably not too healthy) foods such as burgers and pizzas together with flammkuchen.

Thank Pawl
