Third time around I booked the right place that we had enjoyed so much on our first visit, that’s the Werf with a real picnic in the gardens, rather than the one seated at a table. Unfortunately it was raining, which they had a plan...More

Three of us went for the picnic near the cellar door tasting area. Setting was very pretty and the food was good, and service was friendly. Would recommend if you’re in the area, but always book a day or two ahead as they get full!

Our recent lunch at the Rhône Homestead was rather a disaster. The choice on the buffet was much reduced from former years, no fish for our non-meat eating guest, the chicken ran out and worst of all the rare roast beef was off. The manager...More

Sitting in the gardens of the Boschendal Estate tasting the wonderful wines and having a bite to eat is a soothing experience. What is not to enjoy, being outdoors on the beautiful grounds. The staff here are really helpful and friendly, and we took away...More
