Had wine tasting and lunch at same lovely table set up in the garden.

A no choice lunch menu is offered, although what is served is exceptionally good. We had a perfectly cooked 300 gram top quality steak with fries and salad, along with their lovely house Cabernet Sauvignon, all at just 6 pounds (10 rand).

When attempting to get a table for the evening they were fully booked, which is a good indicator.

Excellent service, food and vines at reasonable prices for Europeans. A must if you are in the area ! Try to get a table near the kitchen and enjoy.

Our wine tasting was sans 3 sold out wines- but still the wines left were good enough to be impressive (though I rarely refuse any drop of red wine).

There is only one choice on the menu (steak) for lunch, and this was perfect. I actually asked the chef for the recipe for the salad dressing.

The grounds are truly spectacular and accommodation looked to be rather inviting from the surrounding wineries.

I can see whY this was recommended by locals.

Our friends told us about this beautiful winery. The lunch is simple, Rib Eye Steak, Salad and Chips with a glass of the vineyards delicious shiraz all for an amazing price of SAR200.00 per person.

Superb value in gorgeous surroundings. There are only a few tables available so get there early to snap up a place. We arrived just after midday as they do not accept reservations.

The Vineyard also has a gourmet "michelin star" restaurant which looks stunning - only open in the evening for dinner - a definite for our next visit.

Going to Rust en Vrede is an exceptional experience. The service is top, the menu is varied (and daring), the setting is great and the wines perfectly fit to the food served. If you are in Stellenbosch, try to get a table and enjoy!
