It really does not get any better than a warm Sunday lunchtime, gentle breezes and an idyllic setting overlooking the vineyards. Service from arrival to departure friendly and efficient, food quality exceptional from a nicely varied menu.
The estate wines are very drinkable, though extremely young, and the option of wines by the carafe means that it is possible to work through a few of their offerings to match the food choices.
Yes, you will get a few children playing among the vines, but this all tends to add to the family, casual, relaxed atmosphere, but still enjoying exceptional cuisine.
I can see that dinner would present a totally different experience with no views as such, but I would not hesitate to return.

Constantia Uitsig is one of the restaurants you can go to year after year and have consistently wonderful food. The service is top class, the wine farm the restaurant is located on is beautiful, and it's always busy which is testament to its success.
The menu is varied, catering to all tastes, and ranges from delicious pasta dishes to seafood, meat and vegetarian. I had the grilled Kingklip which was cooked perfectly. What's great is that if you fancy any of the pasta dishes, you can have a half portion of any of them as a starter. I've successfully hosted several business dinners there, as well as personal family celebrations.

This restauant in a vineyard (or wine farm as my local friends called it) was in a beautiful old Cape Dutch homestead. The waitress was charming and she recommended the 2009 Claret, which we enjoyed enormously (not so much the next day though). The food was delicious with local specialities like Springbok carpaccio. My only regret was that it was evening so we couldn't enjoy the views, so must go back again in daylight!

A wonderful Easter lunch with a large group of friends. We were 19 in total (kids + adults) and the staff were warm and accommodating to us all. Thank you for lovely memories, especially our post lunch run around on the cricket pitch.

Uitsig restaurant is a must visit dinner experience amongst the Cape Town wine farms. The setting is stunning - an old colonial style building surrounded by vineyards, overlooking the mountains with the sun setting in the background...

The menu on offer is very interesting and everything sounds so good that it is difficult to choose. I ended up choosing two starters, a main course and the cheese platter to finish it off. The scallops were delicious, so was my pasta and my steak was perfection. Everything was delicious, and the service is impeccable too.

I found the overall price exceptional value (about R1,000 for two people including champagne and a bottle of wine), especially compared to what one would pay elsewhere in the world. I will definitely be going back.
