This place has been going since at least I was a kid, the setting is breathtaking, set among the local vineyards, the weather is generally fantastic, the perfect place for some wine tasting then a long lunch in the sun. Picturesque indeed!

A breakfast was held for 40 persons at the Jonkershuis Restaurant. A limited choice menu was pre-selected and a deposit prepaid. The venue was the courtyard of the historic building that is part of the earliest wine estate in the Constantia Valley. The serving of the guests was done with military precision with the food hot and tasty. Overall a... More

Groot Constantia is a fabulous place to visit and we have been many times. We had never before eaten at Jonkershuis however until recently. We were expecting something special but we're disappointed that the food was distinctly average. Service was also slow and rather haphazard. Certainly will not eat there again as there are so many fabulous new restaurants in... More

My husband and I are great fans of curries as we enjoy strong and bold flavours in our food. So our eyes were drawn to the Cape Malay tasting plate on the menu. We decided to both have the dish. Well, we were glad that we each had our own servings because the tasting plate was sublime. The tasting plate... 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."
