Description: Lunch served at 12:30 pm Thursday thru Sunday Dinner served at 06:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday Set on a working wine farm, we keep things down to earth, in all senses of the word! Home grown and foraged herbs and veggies, locally sourced fish and meats. Throw the white gloves out the window, and keep all the flavour and finesse a Michelin starred team brings to the table! No BYO, as we have put together an extensive wine list, with South African boutique wineries, overseas gems, and our own Springfontein wines, including older vintages, so everyone should be able to find something special to appeal to their palate, and pair with their meal! We look forward to meeting you, treating you, and showing you what we are all about!

“A country restaurant with zing”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

A beautiful, understated and unpretentious restaurant. The flavor combinations are sublime, the service warm and professional and the overall experience extremely pleasurable. Worth the drive!

“For special occasions ..when food is in focus”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Another player in the South African space for gourmet foods. Hard to get used to these smaller portions but likely more healthy.
Her you have to focus and concentrate on the taste ,and the meal becomes the piece of discussion. May by not social ..takes that all like food. And it is good.
A big minus that you cannot BYO ,because there might be moments for a special bottle in my own cellar ,no matter how extensive the restaurant winelist is .

“Fantastic”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We accidentally discovered Springfontein Eats after a wine tasting at the estate. That evening the restaurant was fully booked but we were welcome the day after.

Great decor, and an even greater diner. The chef treated us on many small and original surprises in between the courses, which were fantastic in itself, and accompanied with the wines of the estate.

Truly one of the best meals I ever had and if I would not be living on the other side of the world, I would definately come back soon. Highly recommended. And then I am not even talking about the very reasonable prices.

“Room for improvement”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Beautiful surroundings, warm welcome, food was disappointing and the wine was off. An unnecessary debate over the wine... Handled badly which detracted from the experience. Shame!

Gentle Critic,

We are saddened by your negative experience in our establishment, as we strive every day to over-deliver for every guest that comes through our estate gates!

Please let me know what about the wine was "off", and what the debate was about, so that we can make sure this does not happen in the future.

Should the wine have been corked, we would have happily replaced it with a fresh bottle, as is the case all over the world in the hospitality industry.

We do hope to see you again either in the tasting room, or in the restaurant!

Warmest regards from Springfontein,

Jennifer Packard Weber
Director
Springfontein Wine Estate
