“Mid week dinner”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Set among the vineyards in Stellenbosch, the restaurant is easily accessible. Being mid week, it was easy to secure a booking for 3 people.
The menu has a distinct French flavour with a tempting variety of choices, which made final selections challenging.
The waitron - Petro - was knowledgeable as regards the preparation of the dishes, as well as with the wine pairing. When asked, she could provide extra information about the various estates.
She was very attentive without being intrusive. On a previous visit the waitron was less impressive, but this did not detract from the quality of the food.
Summertime can see a very full restaurant, and for locals this is an ideal 'out of season' destination.

“Excellent cuisine”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

A tranquil and relaxed lunch venue with a view and surroundings to match. The food was exquisite, tasty and the portions perfect. The service was excellent. The wine list was extensive and well put together. A great place to be and enjoy a fantastic afternoon with friends.

“Super romantic”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We love this little spot on a stormy winter's night.
The wood-burning fire is epic, the service and food are world-class and the ambiance is cozy.

“Unsympathetic and overpriced”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Recommended by our hotel, this was very nearly a walk out. Poor signage to indicate its location, which is actually part of the Kleine Klanz golf course. Good menu choices but when we asked for the kingklip without any of the sauces, stating medical reasons, we were met with outright refusal from both the waiter and the chef. As we were preparing to leave, the manager came over and said she could sort it so we stayed. When the meals finally arrived, there was very little in the way of vegetables thought the fish was beautifully cooked. Because we had fussed, we were largely ignored, so service was poor and therefore remained unrewarded. Not on our list at all for a return visit and unlikely the hotel will recommend it again to guests.

“Fantastic flavours”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Terroir would normally be out of my price range, but dinner here was included in our stay at Kleine Zalze on their winter special. Our menu choices were limited but we were very impressed with what we got. Extensive and expensive wine list. Service was good but at this level it could have been better.
