Lovely restaurant on a farm.You can enjoy beer tasting not far from the restaurant .There is a large lawn and play area for children.The restaurant has an outside seating area as well. The Sunday lunch is tasty and a 4 course meal. Their home made milkshakes unfortunately had funny little yellow pieces in the drink which was a disappointment.The waiters... More

Food is good. Service is good. For a busy place, you can't complain about that. The atmosphere and vibe is great. It's next to Stellenbosch Brewery so head over for a pint while you waiting for table if you have to

Very child friendly place, earlier we had visited the bistro and had the normal menu. Nice choices for a Saturday lunch and good options for Children. This weekend we opted for the Sunday lunch, good value for money 3 course for R205. All very happy with the selection from roast Pork, Beef Cheeks, the line fish was also very good.... More

I don't! In 2012 when I reviewed the restaurant I may have mentioned the salt problem, but given the behaviour of the chef, that day I may have forgotten (and I forgot to check my review before starting this one) We took 2 friends with us - and pre booked a table as it pre Christmas and full of jolly...

Beautiful setting, wonderful food, great beer. A very picturesque setting with a dam and lovely seating under the trees. A tranquil place to unwind with friends.

We returned to the Bistro with fond memories of our previous visit. The service was very good and great care was taken to serve seasonal items. The overall standard was good, but not up to the level of the previous visit. The tuna main course was overcooked and rather uninspiring. We did enjoy the visit though.

This is a very popular restaurant delightfully situated in a parklike setting with lots of interest for children. It is dog friendly. We ordered seared tuna which appeared to have been poached withouth trace of any searing. We considered the description misleading. The dressing with noodles was overpowering. The steak which we particularly asked to be pink in the middle... More
