Our foursome enjoyed a lovely meal in this very old city manor. Since it was winter, the fireplaces were ablaze in each room providing a cozy atmosphere. The table cloths were starched white and the dining chairs were most comfortable. The food was delicious. I loved the mushroom risotto and the wild salmon was very well prepared. The kingklip was also delicious. The steak was done to perfection! Dessert and roobis tea finished our meal. The Big Easy is a wonderful place to dine while being in Stellenbosch!

We received a recommendation from our B&B host: it was a perfect dinner - one of the bests we had in South Africa! Staff is very friendly, very much service orientated, food is outstanding, wine card has many regional wines, hard to choose from but with help of the waiter we had a delicious wine to the food! Next time in Stellenbosch we definitely go there again!! Reservation highly recommended.

I enjoy going to Big Easy. The food is excellent but the menu has been the same for as long as I can remember. Would be nice to experience something new there. Other than that the service is excellent and it has a nice cosy atmosphere. Worth a try especially if you have never been before.

The whole ambiance of this eatery is fabulous. The Ernie Els memorabilia is absorbing, and for those who are fans of the local wine industry you will often see some of the main players dining here.

I find the food average, but perfectly fine. They used to do a fabulous lunchtime lamb-burger which rarely makes it back onto the menu these days.

A big plus is the wine list and prices. They look to be about the same as normal cellar-door rates.

One of our favorites in Stellenbosch! This place is always good, you can depend on the food and the service. They have a great wine list and a varied, if not spectacular menu. I suspect that we will continue to patronize this restaurant every time we are in town.
