We had business lunch and service from waiters were very good. All orders was correctly delivered. Food was good quality but not very tasty or spectacular. I had yellowfish which was good quality but quite bland taste. Would not put it on my list to return to

The Big Easy is located in a beautiful building with multiple little cozy rooms/parlours, we decided to sit in the conservatory area which is nice and bright. I ordered the Springbok Carpaccio and my wife had the Onion Soup, both were lovely, I ordered the a Game Filet (I believe it was either Gemsbok or Blesbok) which was rather dry... More

We had a wonderful table outside and the food and service were superb. On the wine front - just spoilt for choice. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We booked months ahead for this dinner for 6 adults, celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary. It was quite disappointing to arrive and hear "that something went wrong with our booking" (strangely enough they said the same to the couple in front of us) but they assured us that they would solve it. Which they did, but it took an... More

The Big Easy has become one of our favourite spots. We've been there a number of times for both lunches and dinners and it never disappoints. Great food, good service and lovely ambiance!

We booked the Big Easy for our New Year's dinner more than six months in advance, because we'd heard that it was peak season and not many restaurants are open on Sunday in Stellenbosch. We even paid a credit-card deposit in advance to secure the table, which was quite a lot of hassle to do from outside SA. When we... More

Table uncomfortable and in hot court yard Rissotto was good. Burger average. Steak average. Thai curry good. Wine very good. Service adequate. Overpriced. Much better food at far better level from Jimmy the Fish.

We regularly stop for a meal at the Big Easy when we visit family living in Stellenbosch. Unfortunately our visit this trip was disappointing. I had a rather soggy Caesar salad and my partner was served oysters which included one that was obviously bad. The service was indifferent where it has historically been excellent. Hopefully we experienced the team on... More
