Organic fabulous fresh food with delicious flavours. The staff were very attentive and explained the menu well and advised which wines from the estate vineyard would be best with our meal. The organic chicken with harrissa flavouring was fabulous>

What a magnificent setting, choose between packing your own picnic basket at the deli or dine in their restaurant. The setting is tranquil, nature provides its own music, perfect for unwinding and leaving your worries behind. We opted for the picnic. Sadly the potato salad, chicken pie and roast beef with cheese was very dry but then the lovely crisp... More

Ate here last night and loved it. Kitchen is on display so you can see your food being prepared. Organic local food so menu a bit limited however presentation was superb and staff were great. Perfect if you are staying on the spier estate.

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and is very well situated in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, and I have to commend Henriette for her great service. The chefs certainly know what they are doing, as the food and desert was perfectly made. Will see you again.

This restaurant read well but didn't really live up to my expectations . Too many toddlers crawling and running around, food ok , my steak was bland and a weird texture and smothered with a black pepper 'gravy' and didn't live up to its tempting description of fresh from our field. The wine was absolutely delicious.

This is the Spier estate restaurant situated quite far away from the lobby. Dont bother with the walk. It is not a very good restaurant.

Great venue, for the movies. After a bit of sound trouble it was on track and very enjoyable. However, I was disappointed in the gourmet picnic basket. No butter, one small cheese, no olives, 4 minute quarters of figs, not great potato salad, no pate, no pickles . I did enjoy the cold meat and baguette. My husband had the... More

Loved the staff who attended table and... More

We had a picnic at the Spier Wine Farm - got all our eating goods and drinks from the eight restaurant deli. The food was good, the wine was fantastic, however the STAFF of this deli were completely rude. We had asked to take 3 wine glasses, paid the R60 deposit for the glasses, and in order for us to...

Shady al fresco restaurant area beside the gardens at Spier farm, really nice setting for lunch. Take away deli next door to collect picnic items as well if needed. Enjoyable lunch with local ingredients, worth a visit if in the area.
