I would recommend Cuvee for a good up-market meal, the style of which is appropriate to the setting and feel of Simonsig and the wine lands overall. The quality is maintained by a smallish meal selection, there is something for everyone though and prices are...More

We had previously visited Cuvée and were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. Today's visit was very disappointing. The food was substandard and the chicken roulade consisted of fatty chicken bits including small chunks of bone. Whilst not requiring a large plate...More

Won't recommend Cuvee to anyone. Pricey for mediocre food. To many other excellent restaurants in the vicinity to choose from.

Simonsig’s restaurant Cuvee is serving dinner only on fridays. But what a dinner!!! Absolutely perfect with matching wines. Our best dinner experience during two weeks in Stellenbosch area. Highly recomended!

This restaurant is set on the Simonsig Wine Estate. Beautifully appointed with warm friendly staff. Service is excellent. The menu is limited especially if you are vegetarian. I am sure that this will make a great function venue if you are celebrating a special occasion
