Really good wine testing. Mostly focus on red wines. One of the best ones for a red wine drinker like myself. I ordered the "all wine" tester and not a single bad wine out of the 7 wines tested. Took the Merlot 2015 home.

This is probably the best lunch you can have in Stellenbosch, although it is pricey its worth the money. The restaurant is gorgeously suited on a deck under large oak trees and the food is to die for. The staff are also friendly and the wine is phenomenal. Definitely worth doing a tasting while you're there.

Very nice steak and wine on a Friday lunch. Overpriced though. Make a reservation. Popular with tourists.

Everything from the minute you get checked off at the gates is superb service. The whole evening is a dining experience. We arrived early to enjoy a glass of delicious local Sauvignon on the terrace while the sun went down. We chose the four course meal and the estate Cabernet Sauvignon. We had a choice of three dishes for each... More

It was difficult to find the place, but when we found it we were impressed by kind attention to us: as they say this is one of top 100 restaurants in the world. I would add: spotless service, best meat in South Africa and top class wines. Thank you very much for keeping standards so high.
