Second time here and once again the food and service was superb. Highly recommend. Oysters followed by fish tartar. Amazing. Kids enjoyed their calamari. The deconstructed steak roll is outstanding. Booking required to enjoy a meal in these wonderful surroundings.

It's not particularly bad it's just not tapas. Potato bravas was served as fried potato skins with a dip- not what was expected. Croquette tasted of nothing. Doesn't live up to hype, lovely setting could be really good.

Great location, food and wines, our party had a fabulous time, only small criticism was the service, very pleasant but a little slow to get their attention for more wine! Good atmosphere.

Steenberg wines are special, and we chose to sample a few from their world-renown selection over lunch, rather than opting for the wine-tasting. As it was a warm day, we chose: Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc, Steenberg Rose and Steenberg Sphinx Chardonnay. The Black Swan in particular was excellent, crisp with a citrussy aftertaste. (I bought a bottle to take home).... More

Visited Bistro 1682 with a group of friends recently. The food was superb and the waiter was so friendly and helpful - even noticing that there is a birthday at the table and arranging something sweet. We also had a baby at the table and found it to be child friendly. Did I mention the food was superb? :)

Description
Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since.

An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands.

The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides fine dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit.

Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, love to create food which is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness. "My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels to Thailand I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. Love. I cook with love and my food is love."

Internationally, Bistro Sixteen82 has been recognised in the list of 20 of the World’s Best Winery Restaurants by Canada’s renowned Wine Access magazine. Locally, listings included prominent mentions in Fleur du Cap’s Top 100 Places; Eat in Cape Town; and EAT OUT’s Best Bistros list.
