Description: Joostenberg Bistro is a casual eatery situated on Klein Joostenberg farm in the Stellenbosch winelands. Head chef Garth Bedford and team serve simple, delicious bistro style breakfast and lunch dishes working with seasonal, local ingredients, and specialise in nose-to-tail cooking. The atmosphere is relaxed, gardens spacious and the service friendly and efficent. We have seating outside on our shaded stoop, or inside the fireplace on cold, rainy days.

Farm atmosphere, great for kids but the food is tasteless and the servings huge. The only thing that saves the day is their shop where you can find great breads, pastry and pies.

We popped into the bistro, not the restaurant and found some wonderful breads, muffins and treats. There were also cheeses, cold meats, jams & preserves, olives and a wide range of yummy picnic goodies. Even home cooked meals and deserts. Even the kids found something good to munch on. We sat on the lawn and the kids played on the jungle gyms and even went on a horse & cart ride. So peaceful and just a short drive out from where we live. Definitely going to be going again soon! The deli is open 7 days a week from 07h30-18h00

Great place for breakfast with a fine accompanying deli. The deli has a wide variety of pork products that I have not seen elsewhere. Terrific fire place. Friendly wait staff. Food served fresh and hot. Worth a visit.

We enjoyed an impromptu lunch at Joostenberg. The food was simple, fresh fare and it was well priced. Nice place to sit with the kids outside, chickens and jungle gyms abound. The homemade soup was excellent as was the pasta dish.
