We held our wedding here and rented the Homestead for three nights. Coming from abroad we had a lot to do in order to get things set up and prepared. Thankfully Lianndi (The Manager/Coordinator) had stepped in and coordinated with vendors to ensure everything ran smoothly and looked incredible! Although the homestead was older, it was an authentic, relaxing experience with amazing staff who ensured we had everything we needed. A very underrated venue with astounding views for a wedding and incredible scenery for photos. The food was absolutely delicious and did not disappoint. All our food, cake and even macaroons were provided for by the restaurant and nothing disappointed. Thanks to all the staff for making this such an easy, stress-free experience!

The food was unparalleled. I love kitchens that are brave enough to experiment with explosions of flavours in the mouth, as opposed to staying safe and playing simple. A pleasant surprise indeed.

Beetroot seared Salmon was good but imho a bit less than 5-6 major taste components (+ the salmon) would make it a much better salmon dish. Rather a general issue though, since the "less is more" principle seems to not have reached SA yet. Same with the sea brass that was excellent but hard to enjoy with uncounted other components that were meant to accompany it but actually rather impeded it. Service by a top expert in every sense. Dornier's Chenin Blanc "Moordenarskloof" with its subtle barrel fermentation note an its harmonicly embedded acidity was wonderful and went very well with both dishes.

Great family friendly place in a very beautiful and peaceful spot in Stellenbosch. Obviously with great wines on the very reasonably priced menue but besides that also very interesting selection of local beers. Always worth a lunch stop over!

Breakfast could be improved: add fruit juice; croissant and bread used for toast were very poor. Friendly service very much appreciated.
