The view, the food, the service and oh the pudding a truly splendid experience. We chose the 6 course meal and chef Adele outdone herself with each course. Nicely spaced between courses it becomes an unforgettable evening. Will visit again

Seemed like they were trying too hard with the food. Service needs a lot of work if it wants to be rated as it is- don’t expect people grunting to carry trays or as they put down cutlery. Superficially food was seasoned well but as...More

In November 2007 Overture Restaurant, situated on Hidden Valley Wines - a wine farm anchored into the side of the Stellenbosch hills - opened its doors for the very first time. Starting from humble beginnings, Overture soon became a destination for great food, service and wines. Since then, Chef Owners Bertus Basson and Craig Cormack have taken Overture to new heights with accolades as prestigious as being in the Eat Out top 10 for five years in a row and acquiring three stars in the Rossouw's Restaurant guide for four years running.You will find Bertus behind the pots at Overture while Craig focuses on his salt range, Amouleh.
