I can't understand why the wines here are so famous, maybe they have to be aged for a long time to release their splendour ? Our assistant did his job professionally, but was obviously not really a wine fan.

To me the wines are too jammy with too much new wood, they are highly rated by Bob Parker, which should make any discerning winophile suspicious.

The site is professionally run without a doubt, I don't have an opinion about the restuarant, didn't try it.

This must be one of the best vineyards around. The winemakers lunch is a must. The only disappointing factor was that they did not accommodate two guests that arrived late but otherwise an awesome experience.

We've eaten at Rust en Vrede twice now and both times they place did not dissappoint. It lived up to all the reviews and awards, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. Our first visit we did the six-course with wine pairing, which is quite pricey but worth it for the experience. During our second visit we opted for the four-course with wine pairing, mostly because we didn't have the 3.5 hours to invest in the six-course meal.

Looking forward to going back on our next visit to Stellenbosch!

Really enjoyed the food and service in this place. Definitely one of the top restaurants in South Africa. Food is of very high quality, and the price is moderate, you definitely can not get this quality food in London with the same price!! Service is the best of all restaurants we have been to in SA. Recommend this restaurant to everyone who is visiting SA.
