“Lack of attention to detail”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Went with friends, on a power trip to Cape Town. Lovely venue, average but good food, good service. However, lunch is served from 12 noon, arrived at 13:00, toilets were already dirty, nappies all over the place, as the toilets only have small waste paper baskets, although play flacitities etc clearly show they cater for young families ( and there were many). By 16:00 it was in a worse filthy state, no clean up seems to have been done at any time. Owner was there, making sure that food and wine were served and patrons were well attended to, so it as mystery why rest rooms were not at all in her visor. Nope, prices are upmarket, venue is upmarket, such lack of attention to the rest rooms is nothing but an insult to the clientele, who definitely are used to better ablution facilities at their own homes.

“Perfect breakfast destination”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Altydgedacht is my favourite breakfast run stop. The food is great. The wine is great. The service is great and the atmosphere is very laid back. Bring the kids and friends and make it a long morning. I love their cappuccino's and their French Toast is also a hit.

“All around greatness”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is a great venue, with a deep and interesting history behind it.
It is rustic / classic venue, with good food and even better service.
Go in the summer, sit under the trees, drink their excellent Merlot and Pinotage wine.
Go for breakfast and have their very popular and unique French toast.

“Excellent wine experience”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

I recently went to Altydgedacht for wine tasting, had a great time, the venue has a classic hearty old farmhouse feel with thick walls and high ceilings. We were welcomed with a smile. The wine tasting was great and very informative, really love the Pinotage, Barbera and Sauvignon Blanc! Next time I'm back I would like to try the restuarant as I heard some good reviews of this place.

Not to miss when in Durbanville wine area.
