The food was very simple but delicious. We had a great evening out with our kids and we all enjoyed it very much.

I agree with some of the earlier reviews and disagree with others... This was my second visit this year, once friends and once family. Admittedly the service was mediocre and food did take a while to get to the table. The place was quite busy and we were in the small room adjacent to the main part of the restaurant.... More

We've been here mostly early enough for dinner to enjoy first our lovely sunsets. The food is just fantastic. They cater for a wide variety at our table of 10 people with lots of different request. Salads are really fresh and the steaks and meat dishes are the men's speciality at La Pineta. There is security parking on this farm... More

As many times before we have been for Dinner at La Pineta. However, this time it was very disappointing. The restaurant was very cold and the fire place was lighted only upon request. My King Clip was dry and dark and seemed to be everything than fresh. For the third time my wife had stomach problems after dining at La... More

I am sooooo glad I didn’t for once read reviews this place before going, as the lady before with her ‘birthday party story’ clearly had a very different experience to my friend and i on Sat 3/09. I am also normally optimistic cautious when buying group buying site deals as I have had some less than desirable experiences but I... More

We recently bought 2 wikideals vouchers so that we could celebrate 4 -August birthdays at La Pineta, for 6 friends. I called and told them about this and even emphasised that it was Dons birthday on the night in question. The food was quite good but I would NOT have paid the full amount for the items we had ,...

La Pineta, beautifully situated between huge pinetrees in the Cape Winelands, 10 mis outside of student town Stellenbosch, is an absolute must-visit ! Apart from it's beautiful location and really impressive menu and quality of food, it is also very childfriendly with a lovely outside eating area and playground for the little ones. The inside dining area is stylish and... More
