Which Stellenbosch restaurants are open on Christmas Day?

My friend is travelling to South Africa shortly with her husband and young son and will be in Stellenbosch on Christmas Day. She is looking for a restaurant for the evening as she wont be getting to Stellenbosch before early afternoon.

Can anyone recommend anywhere ?

I would expect very few restaurants to be open in the evening on Christmas Day. The few that would be open will have special Christmas Lunch Menus and close when thay are over.

The only places that might be open are hotel restaurants which have guests staying. Where will they be staying - in town or in the winelands? Does their accomodation possibly have a restaurant?

In/close to, town the following might be worth checking The Stellenbosch Hotel, D'Ouwe Werf Hotel or Lanzerac manor. Just a couple of minutes drive out of town look at Majeka House or Asara Estate Hotel. All of these are hotels so, hopefully, will be serving dinner.

thanks. they are staying at Spier who are doing lunch and then closing the restaurant, or so we are told, since they don't check out of their Cape Town hotel till christmas day morning they were thinking that an evening meal would be more relaxing.

If Spier, who are a hotel, are not serving an evening meal that doesn't bode well for the rest on my list. Try Asara which is just 5 mins drive from Spier, further into town. It is also a big hotel complex with multiple restaurants. Possibly one of them might be open for an evening meal Christmas Day. Maybe the Deli as Raphaels probably close after Lunch.

Anyway give them a call and check. Here are the contact details - www.asara.co.za/food-and-drink/raphaels/
