I have been twice this month for 2 lunches. The second one with the lovely view of the vines and hills beyond. Service was prompt and perfect. Food and wine were excellent.

Great location with views across the vineyard - first class staff and menu with food that would tempt even the most discerning diner. Probably worth booking ahead and arriving early. Excellent experience - have lunch before the tasting.

We recently visited Buitenverwachting for a wine tasting. The staff was great in describing the various wines. We decided to sat for lunch - the food was great and the service friendly and efficient.

Great spot tucked away in the city vineyards, more local than tourist, quietly becoming one of our favourites. Fantastic picnic option on a sunny day.

We called in on spec to visit this winery and enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting followed by lunch with exceptional personal service from (?) Thinas and the best meal of our holiday. Thank you for fitting us in. The quality of the food, it's presentation and service were all excellent. Fine dining at very reasonable price. We were blown away!

This one has it by a considerable margin We are not fans of 'tasting menus' preferring a greater choice which is what you are offered...each choice stylish and tasty. A number of factors count towards a memorable meal ; comfort, company... More

That was our last stop before flying back home. Food is lovely but service is terrible. I had to stop the waitress to have a table as no one was noticing us, long time to table our orders and bring the food and drinks. Waitress wasn't able to suggest a wine pairing for the food we ordered but the food... More

It was a really hot day when we were here for lunch recently but sitting in the courtyard we remained nice and cool. Our food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and perfect portion sizes. Great wine from the estate and excellent service, loved it!!
