Amazing night in Asara. It came highly recommended and did not disappoint. A lovely wine tasting followed by one of 200+ gins in the bar and dinner in Mise en Place. Divine. Service was amazing and the setting, well, breathtaking!

This Estate has the most stunning views. I live in Stellenbosch, but have never seen it from this vantage point. The food was excellent, the venue was beautiful and the service excellent. Our Christmas lunch was very expensive as can be expected, but I was a little disapointed in the main course. For such a big amount of money I...

Had a very nice lunch there after a wine tasting at Spiers close by. Professional and friendly staff and very good food, but the views alone would make the visit worthwhile. Reasonably priced food and drinks.

Amazing food, excellent service with friendly attention & beautiful view to the mountains. Excellent wines as well. We ordered the terrine/ fois grais and angus filet and they were delicious. The service was excellent with good information about the wines. It was the first restaurant in my South African trip that asked about dietary restrictions.

Decided to stop here for breakfast. Was not impressed with the initial service we received and did not decide to eat here. Enjoyed the view and helped ourselves to some early morning wine shopping. Loved the wine we purchased

An amazing setting and beautiful property. Loved the views. All very clean and upmarket but maybe a little over the top and false. The food was good but did not stand out. The platter we ordered stated it came with fresh bread and crackers but the reality was 6 cracker type bread sticks. The ribs sounded better on the menu....
