We've been there for breakfast and then again for lunch. The location is fantastic in a sheltered courtyard on one of the loveliest wine farms in Constantia.
The food was lovely, not the most generous portion, but fine.
Service is, as in many Cape Town establishments, not their stingiest point though.
Dishes are basic, and sides need to be specifically ordered eg. Fish and chips does not come with any greens and the suggestion of a salad would have been welcome, however the food is delivered and the waitress is never seen again. No checking whether all is in order, no checking on drinks, we eventually flagged down another waitress just to get a dessert menu. If they can get their staff trained I would give them 5 stars.

Not a part of Cape Town we get to much, which is a mistake as there was a reason the first estates in the Cape were established here by the Dutch Settlers. Avenues of old oak trees lead you to magnificent gabled white manor houses perfectly proportioned against the purple mountain backdrop.

The bistro at Buitenverwachting is cozy in winter, with friendly dogs knocking at the glass doors to get out of the rain. The coffee is served in artfully created mugs, while the menu provides for a range of tastes.

On sunny days, the courtyard bounded by the tasting room and the restaurant offers relaxed comfortable seating from which to indulge. Our food was excellent (The Cesar salad amazing). The wines such that a driver is a necessity and the service friendly and attentive.

We went for breakfast and it was awesome. Cosy vibe, amazing coffee and friendly service. I had the creamy scrambled eggs with salmon, it was sublime and a very generous portion too. They also sell some nice gourmet goodies, such as chocolates, olive oil and coffee. Do pop in for a really enjoyable experience.

What a surprise! Having been to Buitenverwachting on numerous occasions I had never been to the little offshoot coffee shop on the side. Fresh pastries...the best coffee in Constantia in the quaintest mugs....amazing freshly prepared produce etc etc and stunning service means I will be back!

We went here when we couldn't get a table in the main restaurant, but we were not disappointed! Tasty lunch, well presented, in a cosy cafe. The cappuccino was one of the best I have had in Cape Town.
