Why can't the experience match the location. Service is poor, poor, poor. And the prices ......really??? We were in a very relaxed holiday frame of mind but it was quickly spoiled by the lack of service. At one point I had to go and look for the waitress in the coffee shop. Come on Cape Town do something about the service and the bad attitude.

My husband and I were recommended to visit Buitenverwachting Wine farm for delicious food at a reasonable price by Cape Town friends and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed an excellent gourmet lunch ordering the Caesar Salad and Steak Tartar. The view of the mountain and vineyards were breathtaking. The wine tasting was professional and happily bought a bottle of red and white. I have already recommended Buitenverwachting to family who are heading to Cape Town soon. We will be back for sure.

After winding your way through mansions and tree-lined lanes, you find this restaurant hidden in a vineyard. The building sprawls out from an inner courtyard into a number of different rooms. The room we ate in faced the vineyard which was framed by Table Mountain towering in the background. Justice, our waiter was friendly and exuberant in his praise of the menu, with every dish including the adjective superb. And indeed they were, complimented with delicious amuse bouche between courses and excellent wine from the vineyard. The combination of delicious food, excellent wine, a scenic location and friendly expert service make this the restaurant the best we have visited in Cape Town so far.

Very enjoyable evening in relaxed surroundings. Excellent, friendly service and very imaginatively presented food. A tendency to overcomplicate dishes though - too many flavours and textures. A small point - their petit fours were a serious letdown ! compared to the rest of the meal and other restaurants in the area

We celebrated our intimate wedding in this restaurant and have to say it was just "buitenverwachting" = beyond expectations! Starting from the service which was very polite and helpful, sometimes even entertaining to the quality of food, we were absolutely satisfied. We all agreed on the fact that this was a nice end of our special day. We even received a complimentary bottle of champagne and another starter.
The food was mouth watering and nicely decorated. Every single course looked like a piece of art. What we found special about the meals was the combination of ingredients. When you add a pleasant atmosphere in romantic vineyards, very polite and attentive service to it, you cannot ask for more.
Wish we lived closer to be able to visit Buitenverwachting more often.
Thank you to all at Buitenverwachting!
