Description: Nederburg presents the restaurant, The Red Table, situated in its iconic manor house, a national monument. It has been passionately created in collaboration with well-known Cape Town foodie, Andrea Foulkes, and offers locally-sourced, fresh food in a comfortable and historic atmosphere. The accent is on tasty, simple but superb eating with flavours to match the award-winning range of Nederburg wines. Signature favourites include the duo of lamb, venison burger, fillet steak and pork belly. During the summer months, the restaurant spills out onto the terrace and sprawling gardens against the backdrop of vineyards and the towering Drakenstein mountains. In the fragrant and lush gardens surrounding the manor house, you'll find leisurely spots in the cool shade of the age-old trees you can enjoy fare created to complement Nederburg's delicious wines. With fireplaces ablaze during the winter months, the plush and comfortable interior of the manor house is the perfect setting for leisurely meals shared with family and friends when chilly outside.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

When we booked a table at The Red Table, we expected a bistro type of restaurant, but it is quite a classic restaurant, set in the old manor house of the Nederburg wine estate, with high ceilings and lots of antiques. The food was good but did not have a wow effect for us. The service was excellent.
It was raining the day we had lunch at The Red table, so we had a table inside, but there are seats outside overlooking the wine fields. The location is beautiful.

“Great Setting, Poor Frozen Dessert”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

My wife and I had lunch there on a cold winter's day. The setting is absolutely fabulous. However, the main course was average and my trio of ice cream desserts were just frozen desserts from Dairy Maid. One would expect home-made desserts at the very least. Very disappointing. Expected far more. Will not return. Kenneth & Petra Fisher.

“New good quality Friday dinner venue in Paarl”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Think Cape Dutch homestead, baby grand piano, white tablecloths, fireplace, good service and a special 3-course dinner on Friday nights, inclusive of 2 generous glasses of wine. We will make this a regular Friday night treat!
