“Going back this Weekend”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

My hotel apartment is just opposite the corner of this wonder restaurant. Since the day I arrived in Stellenbosch this place has been busy! Finally decided to give it a try. My lunch was FANTASTIC! Had the most expensive wine and meal on the menu, Money well spent! Going again, but this time for Dinner. Can't wait!

“mixed view”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Recently had a dinner with friends. The food was good, not amazing, and think it was a little on the expensive side. I was very impressed with the wine selection though. Maybe go there just for that experience alone. We were in a group on 7 so not a very big table, and found it very disapointing that they couldnt bring all the main course at the same time. For any decent restaurant I believe this is a MUST.

“Well worth finding!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This large, busy and friendly restaurant, with the kitchen in the middle, offers a range of different rooms, and is right in the centre of lively and trendy Stellenbosch. Surprisingly hard to find, it is above an African gift shop and a wine bar, but well worth finding. There is a great atmosphere, quick service, and excellent food. We started with a vast plate of beef carpaccio followed by a beautifully cooked Kingclip with the best ever serving of tasty buttered spinach: as good a meal as we have ever enjoyed in Stellenbosch! Well worth seeking out for lunch or dinner. We liked the front room overlooking the street, but others went for the atmosphere around the kitchen or the open area in the centre.

“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We were really struggling to find an early dinner place in/around Stellenbosch on our last day in SA before heading to the Airport for our evening flight home.
We decided to play it by ear an just walk around and is what we could find. We where a party of 8 including 3 kids.. I wasn't that hopeful. We stumbled across Wijnhaus which looked busy (usually a good sign!)
The service and food where very good, the salads and the pasta and meat balls where particularly good. We sat inside upstairs but the covered terrace looked very nice. Sadly we couldn't linger but would definitely make another visit if in Stellenbosch again.

“Expensive but very good”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Beautiful restaurant, great atmosphere, friendly and attentive service. Food was delicious - we had fillet steak and lamb cutlets. But having said that, I really feel the menu is overpriced, especially for the local market. Would return though...
