“Shocking”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

The view is pretty! The food was terrible! Paid R100 for a piece of chicken. Asked for a spoon got it after the third person we asked. Management was non-existend and gave us no reason as to why we had to wait an hour and fifteen minutes for our food. After we complained twice. The waiter seemed drunk and then told us that he had been drinking all night....

“Cozy and relaxing”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

At the start of the winter it was nice to visit this restaurant with roaring fire places and warm hearty food. We will be back for more.

“Simply good value for money at a beautiful location”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

The service and the food compete for accolades. it is difficult to choose which is best,

The menu is extensive and caters for all tastes, if true South African cuisine is what you enjoy. Fish cake, pear and walnut salad, carpaccio, etc. for starters, wind dried and aged steaks, oxtail. line fish, you name it as mains, and do not miss the Lindt Tart desert!

Add to the above the extensive wine list, beautiful sunset views of Table Mountain, friendly staff and management, and you will know that the money spent here is well worth the few kilometres trip to the location next to the Stellenbosch air field.

“For a relaxing treat”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

One of the good things is that "very little changes at La Pineta. The food is terrific; service is great and your friendly senior staff are always there to welcome you - it's like visiting family! We've been going there every time we visit South Africa and regard it as a 'treat' and a highlight of our dining experiences.
