A friend and I met for lunch on a Sunday and we had a lovely lunch. My friend chose the Rose, which was lovely and she bought some for home. Our food was good but the service was not top notch.

The food and ambiance at Jonkershuis is lovely. The Cape Malay style is unique and Jonkershuis does it really well. The tasting platter is fun to share. Groot Constantia's wines are also fantastic - not cheap though.

Traditional Cape food at its best. The sample platter introduces one to Cape Malay dishes. Ample portions, if you are not a big eater the food on the platter is enough for two. Fire on cold days gives a lovely ambiance. Groot Constantia Merlot a...More

Jonkershuis Constantia is nestled in the historic core of the Groot Constantia Wine Estate next to the historic Manor House and surrounded by ancient oak trees. Your first impression is dominated by sweeping views across the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, down the valley to the enveloping coastline of False Bay.

This family owned and managed bistro boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining, to typical Italian village gatherings in their vine covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, were children can safely play reminiscent of a bygone era..

Partner Chris Coetzee, a father of two energetic young sons says, "Our close proximity and strong association with Iziko Museums is very important to me, it is a privilege for my children to be raised surrounded by so much of their heritage."
The rich cultural history of Jonkershuis lends a magical and old world charm to any occasion held at the beautiful Jonkershuis.

Tammy Botbyl (partner), "The strong legacy of history and tradition has inspired many couples to share their vows here and celebrate their union in style. It is a privilege for us to be part of the beginning of so many new legacies."
