If I could give this farm a zero I would... When we arrived at the farm we were basically unnoticed ( the tasting room wasn't full). When we were finally aknowledged the person basically gave us a very uninterested tasting and chose to rather put all his energy on a large gentleman next to us. How sad considering that we... More

Free tastings were offered so it was loud and crowded but servers were friendly and wine was good. Beautiful artwork on the grounds.

Set in a beautiful location this an ideal location but they are very commercialized and lost the personal touch. The food in the deli was ok. 3 out of 4 meals were of good size and quality but the 4th was tiny. extra food had to be ordered. They didn't have the beers we ordered so why have them on... More

Perfect location with view stretching to False Bay and Table Mountain. Was equalled with a relaxed yet very competent and attentive service. And the excellent food was the "proof in the pudding". Already, the starters - beef tatar with marinated salmon- was to die for. The main - springbok - could even raise the level. Top: amuse gueule, sorbet, praline... More

The food was delicious and well presented. The staff were knowledgeable and... More

Stopped here for about an hour on our tour of the area. Modern winery, large tasting room with beautiful views over the vineyards. Our hostess was very pleasant and in our time here we were able to sample the majority of Tokara's wines, whilst discussing the merits of the local industry as opposed to back home in Australia. We bought... More

We were lucky enough to have a private tour through someone we met on holiday. A real behind the scenes tour including going into the library where they keep a few bottles of each vintage, wonderful insight. The tour was followed by some wine and brandy tasting given by some very informative staff. Following the tasting I have ordered some... More

This place is a must see and taste experience. If you only have a short time to visit Stellenbosch, this is the place. It is a great stop on the Garden Route
