It was a cold rainy day in Stellenbosch (and there are many of those!!)
Cuvee was the ideal place for Sunday lunch - the fire and décor makes this such a nice and cosy place...
The food was divine!! Each meal was presented beautifully and had a special touch. Amongst the group we had squid, quail, and salmon for starters. Each dish a masterpiece - and the wooded Chenin and Chardonnay even had the serious wine connoisseurs around the table in awe. The best Chardonnay I have ever tasted (although I am not an expert)!!
The oxtail (main course) was not presented in customary SA style but was, almost surprisingly, delicious and tasteful! The fish did not disappoint either and the Springbok was presented so nicely and scored a 10/10 for presentation too.
The waitress took good care of us and everybody around the table had a great time!

We are regular visitors to this restaurant - where the menu changes regularly and remains interesting - always with good wine parings.
Today's visit just reconfirmed why we go back so often - close to home and absolutely worth the visit - every time!! (Inside in winter and outside in summer)

Presentation and quality of food are both very very good.
Service is faultless and the wine recommended with each dish is absolutely spot on.

We visited as a family with boys and the visit was worthwhile and even the kids recommended on the quality of the fare.

As usual, lunch at Cuvee did not disappoint. The food is amazing, especially the venison and the pork belly. For desserts, try the creme brulee, one of the best.

Our lunch was organised by our B&B operator in Cape Town and it couldn't have been better.

The day was lovely, so we sat outside, which only added to the charm of our lunch. The food was superb and the service excellent.

I'm sure there are many great places to eat in Stellenbosch, so I can't comment on any others, but Cuvee at Simonsig hit all the right spots

Our visit to Cuvee was unplanned, but a welcome surprise. Service was top notch, fast and efficient with a welcome drink offered. The extensive menu impressed, also relatively well priced. We ordered the crispy squid, mushroom tart, pork belly and chocolate dessert - was truly a culinary delight. We will definitely visit again.
