Went to Oppie Dorp on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. The food was excellent, lots to chose from on the menu including daily specials, I had the Lamb which was superb. I loved sitting outside on the patio for dinner, it was very romantic with the tiny lights lighting up the trees. Highly recommended this restaurant.

We were told about Oppie dorp from our hotel owner just down the street. We were told we needed to have a reservation, but thought we would just take a walk and see. The rumors are true - better to have a reservation. However, we put our names down and walked around town a bit. Upon returning at our specific... More

My husband and I booked this so that we could revisit after being there two years ago and we were not disappointed still great food and wine and value for money - we did have to push for a better table as we had booked this September 2016 but this was not a problem

We popped in not expecting too much and found a delightful experience. Suffice to say that the service is personal and outstanding (chatted to the owner Len at lenght), the food is very good and the atmosphere inside old Stellenbosch. I prefer the interior experience but, if you want to sit and watch the street life go by, outside is... More

This is a tourist trap where waiters introduce themselves by their name and start reeling off long list of items not on the menu referring to characters in "the Lion King" as a reference. " you know Pumba the warthog" that's what we have in the extras menu". After the big intro what shows up is what I get at... More

This beautiful little Restaurant in Stellenborsch is stylish and serves excellent food. The Grilled Ostrich Steak and Kudo Steak were excellent and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Booking is a good idea

Service not efficient. First of all we were greeted 4x with good evening although it was just before noon! Then we ordered one menu (Lamm ) and one salad as a main course. The waiter forgot to bring us the veggies.with the Lamm and the salad was not eatable, old and no taste.

Thank Barbara Z
