Most gorgeous view, picture perfect. Delicious scones with cream and large berry jam selection, special teas. Lovely to sit outside on a glorious day enjoying the spectacular view. Very peaceful. Outstanding service. Managed by owners the O'Grady's. One can sense that the products are responsibly sourced and the staff are well looked after. Shop contains items such as olive oils,... More

We visit the berry farm at least once a month. They make the best scones you will ever have, fresh from the oven served with clotted cream and a selection of jams. Set on the high tops of Stellenbosch mountains, away from the hustle and bustles of the city. Hillcrest offers you postcard views with the cleanest crisp air that... More

Met up with friends at Hillcrest Berry Orchard on Saturday lunch time, it was quiet - should have been a hint! The service was terrible, each time we needed a waiter/waitress we had to get up and go and look for one! Then came the menus, prices have skyrocketed since our last visit but so has the cost of living... More

My girlfriend and I visited during a sunny afternoon after a friend recommended it for the scones. The venue is very picturesque and the setting is very peaceful. We decided to have a light lunch before trying the scones. The fruit smoothies were delicious and the meals were very good. Then came the scones. They were amazingly good. The jams... More

We arrived as it opened and had a great view from our terrace table. The breakfast choice was great and the staff were very attentive and pleasant. The omelette was delicious and the overall experience a perfect start to a day touring the nearby vineyards.

we had lunch lately at Hillcrest Berry farm. Very disappointing compared to previous experiences, both on choice on the menu and the quality. No wonder the place was almost empty (and this on Saturday. Staff was friendly and ok,

We have been here a few times and always enjoy sitting outside for the view. The food was enjoyable and the service good. The products are a bit expensive. All in all we had a lovely day. We as SA senior citizen always get a raw deal, for many people cater for the overseas market which is their right to... More

I've heard so much of Hillcrest Berry Orchard so I was really excited to go. We visited on a Wednesday morning, we were the only people there at around 9:30 - only later were there more visitors, mostly tourists. It was a really hot day so we decided to sit outside, also the interior inside wasn't really inviting - little... More

One would expect an orchard, or at least a place where you can view or pick berries, no such thing, only a restaurant with an amazing view that serves ordinary food. They do not even serve berries other than the ready made berry compote to be spread on toast or something similar. was disappointed in the food but the view... More
