“Yet another brilliant venue in the Winelands”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Left a booking for 20 people too late but brilliantly assisted by Anmarie who whipped us a set menu with great options AND printed personalized menus for us whitin minutes! This followed by great food, near perfect service and excellent wine menu at very good prices. All in all a great afternoon enjoyed by all at a wonderful venue.

“Come dine with me”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Maybe a bit pricey, but who cares if it is for a special occasion. The menu was very nice, the table settings crisp and fresch and the service excellent.

“Simonsig is the best choice if you want to experience a symphony of wine and food in the heart of the winelands.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

It was an unforgetable experience. The Cuvée Resturant is stylish, yet cozy. The food is delicious, a feast for the eyes and in par with the best world-wide. For the wine lovers I highly recommend the Redhill Pinotage, Frans Malan and the Vin de Liza.

“Fabulous place!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Excellent setting (love the extended deck outside), fantastic service, great wine (of course!) - all that makes for a memorable experience/s. And that's before you get to the food!

The seasonal menu alone is enough to make you want to stay there for a few days. Despite all the delightful options, I tend to always order the asparagus starter, and then pork belly for mains. The food is presented beautifully and is always delicious.

I've been to Cuvee a few times in the last year and am never disappointed. It's my go-to winelands restaurant when family and friends visit, too. Keep it up, you guys!
