To play golf well, as major Big Easy shareholder Ernie Els would tell you, you need more than a powerful, accurate drive (Els's "Big Easy"), you also need a combination of guile and inspiration to get from fairway to green and then, of course, forensic putting. In other words, you need the complete game. In restaurant terms the complete game... More

Went there for lunch on our first day in Stellingenbosch and then with friends for a dinner later in the week. Excellent food and wine. As I am on a strict gluten/ wheat free diet their staff were very knowledge about the various ingredients in the various dishes. Lovely atmosphere .

Being a uni town, there is a lot more restaurants tailored for them. This one attracts those that prefer to wear trousers and not shorts. Very good food and service to match.

I ate here with my wife on a weekday evening. We didn't have a reservation, but were told there would be a table if we were happy to wait at the bar for 15 or 20 mins. There were a good selection of wines and spirits at the bar which had a cosy feel. After our 20 mins or so... More

We ate the fish and chicken curry and a sirloin steak. Both tasted good, also the oysters as a starter were fresh and delicious. William, our waiter, was friendly and zuvorkommend, and all over he was one of the best waiters we ever had in our life!!

I had an excellent dinner at the Big Easy. The mood and decor were classic the food excellent. The staff attentive. We arrived late but it wasn't an issue at all. Will be back.

Once again disappointed in menu choices. Food was average as it was plainly prepared Steak was ok but not juicy. I had a pasta dish with sun-dried tomatoes unfortunately there was a balsamic flavor that interfered with with the sweetness of the tomatoes. Almost to the point of being sour. Too bad as it could have been great.

Thank Nanette58
