Sat at an outside table, under a canopy, enjoying a cool beer or glass of wine. What more do you need? Good service too,

Letting the Slug & Lettuce name down!! Visited it for Christmas at R200 per head for 3-course meal. Starter of mussels in white wine sauce was atrocious - mussels wasn't fresh, was frozen ones from a can and sauce had started seperating making it taste like a bottle of seawater. Tuna steak and roast beef was good, but roast potatoes... More

My family and I came for something to eat and decided on this restaurant as the one. It started off well, but then came all the problems... On the 2nd round of drinks they were out of stock on Millers after I had one on the first round. They had no Devon Valley white wine as well. Then on the... More

The one star is for the venue. Right in the center of Stellenbosch. 2 of the white wine we ordered was not available (SPIER and KANU Chenin Blanc) were not available as well as the meal I ordered - nothing extreme: just nachos! So unfussed, I ordered hake. The waiter offered to bring me grilled instead of battered as the... More

On a trip to Stellanbosch I had the misfortune to fall down an uncovered drain and found myself recovering at the Slug and Lettuce. It soon became obvious that I had hurt my arm and shoulder badly. The owner and staff were so helpful and caring - they produced an ice pack and the owner sent us off to to... More

We ordered, nothing came. Eventually after thirty minutes two burgers appeared but none of the four other salads. Why one earth couldn't they have been prepared at the same time as the burgers??? Eventually, after forty minutes, one by one, the salads slowly appeared, the last one forty five minutes after we ordered. Spoke to the owner, who turned abusive... More

Just stopped for drinks outside but had great service and we're sorry we couldn't hang around for a bite as the menu looked interesting. Very local, the personification of a pub with tv's offering the latest soccer match. Very reasonable. A nice stop off during a tour and shopping in wonderful Stellenbosch.

We have eaten there before and it was very good. This visit was disappointing. They had no spare ribs despite the fact that we got there at 18h00 on a Friday evening. The cup of coffee that I had was quite easily the worst ever.

The atmosphere and service from waiters and staff are really excellent. The chaps at the bar was very friendly and professional. The food was not good at all. I have had supper here before and the hamburgers were excellent. Sorry to say but the chicken strips, pizza and nachos was nasty!!
