Our offering on the estate includes boutique accommodation and a Bistro that offers an appetizing menu with old classics and newly created herb inspired dishes. Seasonal picnics are very popular under our great oak tree. Allée Bleue is the ideal location to host stylish weddings, trendsetting events and family celebrations.

We were travelling up from Stellenbosch to Babylonstoren for lunch and this was on the way. It had been recommended to us as an attractive place to visit and we were not disappointed.
The young man doing the wine tasting was very knowledgeable and offered us nibbles between the various wines. We were in a courtyard in the shade of an olive tree and seeing the menu would have happily eaten there if we had not booked elsewhere. We shall certainly return

Visited this vineyard on the purple wine tram from Franschhoek and was delighted by the warm welcome and individual service we received. Decided to stay for lunch so had the cheese and meat platter while tasting some of the local wines. Great place to come and spend a couple of hours on a hot day.

We did a wine tasting and really enjoyed the cheese board. The service was excellent and we didn't feel at all rushed. Wine was very good. Stopped at the bistro for coffee and cheesecake afterwards, where the service was equally friendly and efficient. All in all a great experience!

We had been wine tasting so stopped off at Allee Bleue for lunch to soak up some of the alcohol. The Bistro was almost empty, so not much ambience, but we were served immediately. I had a hamburger and chips (standard fare and nicely cooked) while my partner ordered their thick cut sirloin - with some trepidation because sirloin can be notoriously tough and sinewy. What a pleasant surprise. How the chef managed to get a huge piece of sirloin so tender and juicy is amazing and deserves commendation. The chips were light and crispy and our empty plates testified to our satisfaction. We plan to go back for a picnic -
