Very tasty food in a beautiful setting. We love this type of restaurant where authentic meets modern. But it's all about the food at the end of the day and all our dishes tasted nice. No comments.

This was a very nice gift shop, with an excellent selection of South African crafts to take home as souvenirs from this amazing country.

Why go to vineyards when this place brings their wine to you?! We had a great wine tasting afternoon, sampling 6 wines each of our choice from a long list of local vineyards. Once we chose our favourite, we stayed for another glass. So glad we visited this place as I hadn't tasted Kanonkop before. We even went back here... More

We went on the recommendation of some fellow travellers. They weren't wrong! Excellent meal in a delightful setting in a vast area above a wine shop. It's all zoned off in different sections, so it's cosy and atmospheric with its oddments of furniture and lights. Superb food. Good prices. Nice service. Would definitely recommend...

Great restaurant if you are a meat and game lover. Not much options for a vegetarian though. I love the ambiance and cosiness the place offered. Reserve in advance for a window seat

Wijnhuis has great setting - after exploring the charming town, we took seats on the sidewalk serving area, under a large oak tree, and decided to do an afternoon wine tasting. I chose the 6 pre-chosen tastings for R50. My husband chose a tasting of three sauvignon blanc. Wine tasting list had very good descriptions of wines - and available... More

Went here for dinner one night and it was pretty good. Not great, but not bad either. The steak was excellent, the lamb lemon not so much (quite a weird dish?). The wines were excellent though and dessert was a pretty tasty carrot cake.

I booked a table for two for my partner and her mother for her mother's 64th birthday and the look on my partners​ face after she came back after the pathetic service and overpriced food served to her in her words "food look like dog food put on the table". I booked a table as, I have been there before... More

Charming cafe society atmosphere for an al fresco lunch. Great coffee and delicious salads. Very friendly waitress. The menu is extensive and caters for all.
