“Good tapas - great view”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Joined friends to celebrate a birthday and shared the tapas platters. Great quality and value, with wine included in the price. The view over the mountains is spectacular and the Dornier wine range pretty good.

“Gourmet tapas at great value”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

My husband and I were part of a big party celebrating a friend's birthday. First time for us at Bodega, but will definitely not be our last. Sleek & friendly service, excellent tapas (best we ever had and that includes having been to similar venues around Constantia) and a view that is hard to beat. R250 platter for two incl. a bottle of wine (specified). Love the ambience and décor. Wines on the wine list (and in the cellar) excellent and fairly priced for the quality. They also have lesser known (in SA) cultivars like a Malbec and Tempranillo, which is currently selling at R94 each at the cellar. (The Malbec sells for R124 in the restaurant.) Top score to Rafael and Phelan for excellent service; keeping everyone at the table happy and their glasses full!

“Great outing!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I had the tapas platter for two, which included a bottle of wine, all for R250. It was most enjoyable and our waiter, Percy, was brilliant - extremely knowledgeable and charming! A great way to while away an afternoon - good food and wine in a magnificent setting!

“Secluded Wine Estate”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Good wines, lovely setting outdoors on a sunny day, views of the mountains all around.
Food was very good but the two course choice for R225 was not a very good offer. Surrounding
Wineries of the same calibre offer three courses for that amount! My friend ordered the seafood platter which was very short on content for R390 for one person, still food was good!

“A great lunch out for the family”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I have lunch here a few time's on business, and then also with my family. Its a great place for the family, with a child friendly area, and the food is good !!, and at a great price. It also also has great views of the Mountain, and the winery. All in all you can just go and have a great family outing
