Came her for dinner one night with two work colleagues -it was so good we brought about 20 people back the next night and they accommodated us. Food and wine is good value!

Even better they have a late night bar upstairs after your food where you can smoke too! Staff great and changed the music for me too!

A must in stellenbosch

What an absolutely disappointing experience.
When we arrived on a public holiday we were greeted very warmly an seated by what I assume was a more senior waiter - after this everything just went wrong.

Our waiter (not the same one) brought by our menus and just walked away... after we got our menus we waited for about 15min for a drinks order to be taken... having seen a particular new gin they had I wanted to place my order for that... to my utter shock the waiter did not even know about it... even though there is a huge chalkboard right infront of him advertising it?

After we explained the menu to him and ordering our drinks they eventually arrived.
The drinks were simply plonked on our table - tonic bottles not even opened for us..
We decided on this poor show to rather not have dinner!
Paying R130 for 2 drinks and not getting tip top service is unacceptable.

My mother and myself went for supper on a relatively slow evening.

We were warmly greeted at the door, but services was a little slow. The waiters/waitresses were friendly and were able to professionally sort out problems

The Vegetarian pasta was not very appetizing. The pasta was overcooked and the dish came out looking and tasty like they just threw the 'toppings' on and left it under the salamander until pick up. We sent the dish back and got refunded without making a scene.

The burger was delicious. Homemade patties and sides were good. The fries were tasty and crisp.

The upstairs gin bar is far better than the restaurant, which offers a wide variety of speciality gins made by the friendly barmen. Relaxing and pleasant atmosphere with very unique decor.

We had had dinner and were looking for a quiet spot for a nightcap at about 10.30pm; a friend had recommended Steam. We walked across town for over 15 minutes but not before checking on the Steam website to confirm that they were open until midnight. We walked in, went upstairs and were told that we would not be served as it had been a slow night and they were closing early. I explained that we had walked across town after checking their opening hours but was told that we would not be served. We left the restaurant immediately but the end of an already bad experience was having the manager hot on our heels, slamming and locking the door behind us. We went next door to De Stomme Jonge where we were greeted warmly, and they went out of their way to “make a plan” to get my daughter the hot chocolate that she requested.

An incredible bar staff that is both interactive an knowledgeable about the craft. Fantastic Gin selection and crafted cocktails to die for. The food is very well prepared and great of all tastes from spicy to mild. Recommended for anything from a client meeting to cool hang out.
