We had a group of 20 and were accommodated within a reasonable time. We had three tables close by. Food was very good and decent variety. Plenty of wine choices.

The Wijnhuis is in a prime location in the town. It was an unpleasant dining experience.It was early when we went and the waitress did bring menus, take our order and bring drinks. The air is full of the smell of frying meat, it is noticeable when you leave how bad this is. The plates brought to other tables contained... More

The restaurant is well hidden in downtown Stellenbosch and you have to know about it to go there - it's in courtyard and upstairs. But once there you get the best meal and wine in Stellenbosch. I've never had a better carpaccio then the one made from kudu in Wijnhuis . There was 12 of us and we're all blown... More

Service was poor. Meat overcooked even after specifying repeatedly. Expensive for what you get. Disappointment

I still can't believe that nothing has changed after our last visit. The service is shocking plus we waited half an hour for a strawberry daiquiri which was water and some pulp...plus they charged us for two instead of one. That's when we decided to rather not have dinner at this establishment...never again

We attended a rehersal dinner here, 18 person party. The food was amazing, the service was lacking. Would not recommend a large party to book here.

We have eaten here a few times before and on a hot afternoon the prospect of a couple of their ample Aperol Spritz spurs us on to visit once again! It is not a huge place but does have a very pleasant open area/garden at the back in addition to a smallish eating area inside plus some pavement tables. Countless... More

Every single time we needed something, we had to wave them over. But, it also took very long, to bring a spoon for the soup, but I also finished my chocolate cake before they bothered to bring my drink. Only the bill came fast. Food was mediocre. They do have a lot of whines and went out of their way... More

You must reserve before going! You can do a wine test while you eat. The food is excellent and people are really kind. Yo can eat fish meat lamb chicken whatever you want, their menu is extensive and everything seems delicious.
