We stopped here for lunch. The atmoshpere was a bit flat, but I guess this was due to the fact that we were the only diners in this large restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had the calamari and my wife had the fillet steak. Both dishes were delicious. The grounds and gardens of this establishment are... More

We had lunch here with a big group of friends after some wine tasting in Robertson. There is a good variety on the menu. Service was friendly and efficient. The bistro provides a lovely setting especially when the weather is good. The pizzas was very good with a thin crust, and the burgers was a good sized portion.

We visited Robertson during August and a word of warning - nothing is open past 2pm on Saturday and all day Sunday. Christina's seemed our only choice and pictures looked great. When we arrived however it was a very average place. Not terrible but not up to the standard of other wine estates I had visited in Stellenbosch and Franschoek.... More

As we were recommended to try the pizza's at this restaurant, we did not contemplate anything else. Pizza's are on a very thin base, crispy and loaded with toppings of your choice. All selections appeared tantalising and very tasty........ The staff were polite, courteous and professional and ensured that we had a table in the sun, as requested. We noticed... More

With the entire family we went here to lunch. The waitress was very hospital and friendly. To drink, I ordered a fresh banana milkshake, absolutely delicious. For the maincourse I ordered the mexican burger with chips. It was very well seasoned and the meat was properly cooked. I can speak for the whole family that every single one of us... More

This is a beautiful winery with a great tasting room and just across the garden is a lovely little cafe. We stopped to taste wine and figured out we were hungry so a stop was needed. They have great bistro style food, we got a couple of fancy sandwhiches to eat outside on the patio. Other than a couple of... More

We first went to do wine tasting and found the staff extremenly helpful and knowledgeable Food at the Bistro is delicious and service outstanding, with plenty of attention to detail. A wide choice of some excellent wines. It was hard to choose from a wide menu however the soup and wraps are excellent

I often stop here for lunch and have never been disappointed in the food or service. Excellent food, good wine, clean rest rooms, beautiful garden, great coffee. Pizza from the wood oven is always tasty.

Excellent lunch with fantastic wine! Can highly recommend the Parma ham salad and the Pork medallions as a main! Best restaurant experience in Robertson by far (of the 3 we ate at. The other 2 were The Rosendal and Strictly Coffee)

Description
The place to lunch in the Robertson Valley if you love Thin-crust wood-fired gourmet pizzas, award winning burgers, great food made to order from fresh local seasonal produce. Located within the lush gardens of the Van Loveren Estate, child and pet friendly seating under the vine-covered pergola, or inside the old Manor House with french doors opening up into the gardens. Also open on Sundays when local musicians set the tone for a laid back afternoon!
