We visited this place today as it is one of the top venues in Stellenbosch and we had very good friends whom we wanted to spoil with a great wine tasting experience. The atmosphere on arrival was cold and the staff unfriendly and sullen with no information offered except the name of the wine. The place and the building looks... More

Tokara is a big wine estate with amazing views. It is very beautiful and the Delikatessen is great for lunch, especially with kids. The wine tasting was a little bit boring. The view from the tasting room was great but the tasting was without charm. The only package is with 8 wines, 1 dessert wine and 1 brandy. I personally... More

Another stunning estate in Stellenbosch! Too bad about the service though... We walked in and were seated at a "reserved" table where the people who had reserved it arrived an hour after we did and we shared a table with strangers. Not a big deal really, just a small irritation. The problem was that we were only there for the... More

Such a funky wine farm. On the beautiful Helshoogte drive. Stunning decor and vistas of vineyards, Tokara has exceptional wines and top notch food. A definite place to visit, for locals and international travelers that love wine and food!

We stopped here for lunch after receiving a recommendation. My husbands springbok was absolutely excellent. He was in heaven. I was not at all impressed by certain things such as the wine waiters lack of knowledge or ability to answer our questions. Even when I asked about their own wines he was not able to answer my basic queries and... More

This is a beautiful and modern tasting room with stunning views. The staff was super friendly and the overall experience was fairly nice. However, they only offer one tasting option: 9 wines (including brandy) for 100 ZAR. Apparently their tastings used to be free and it was attracting lots of freeloaders so now they charge. I'm fine with paying for... More

How beautiful is this winery and deli..... Wow. Worth visiting for the quality of the buildings and the location alone. Excellent buildings, views, wines, food and merchandise.

Don't be in a rush at the wine tasting. You taste nine wines and we split one tasting. We ended up buying 2 wines. Enjoyed the art and the views. The grounds are beautiful and the views of the valley and Stellenbosch are panoramic.

Just like other reviews I read on Tripadvisor, Yes, their service is slow. We also waited ages to be served. Once served, everything was great though. stunning view of wineyard from tasting space was truly amazing and beautiful. People are fun. We enjoyed our time there afterall.
