Exquisite food, great wine, gorgeous location and friendly, knowledgeable waiters. This is top end food from start to finish.

We loved the artworks, the design, the setting and the atmosphere, but was a little let down by the food. We love healthy food, but some of the items on the menu is misleading, and better descriptions would be helpful ie: The french toast was a very dense corn bread, so the egg can not infiltrate, resulting in a very dry dish.(menu only said bread, not brick). The hot chocolate was not sweet at all ( we asked them to add milo for flavour, so we could drink it), service VERY slow, and waitress not attentive. I will return, I think they have a lot of potential, maybe just teething problems.

Place was highly recommended and did not disappoint. Went for a late lunch and was pleased with the quality of the food and the views were incredible.

This stylish restaurant and the winery that houses it are furnished in mid-century modern décor. The restaurant at this winery is superb. Request a table on the patio, overlooking the vineyards for incredible views, especially in the afternoon when the sunlight is glittering over the vines. The lunch menu is sophisticated and will please most tastes. The soup portion was big enough for two to share, the baked Alaskan an incredible salmon dish, was amazing. Service here is top notch.

A pleasant lunch venue with views into the surrounding mountains in Stellenbosch. The starters were definitely the highlight of the meal and if I had to return would only order more of these and skip the main courses.
