Rust en Vrede is worth a visit if you enjoy red wine. The story behind their wines are explained well by the staff serving you. We sat under the shade of the trees on the patio sipping some of the best red wines on offer with a view of the vineyards. This is an upmarket wine estate so lunch choice... More

We revisited Rust en Vrede with our visiting friends. The menu this time was not our cup of tea and not everything was as we experienced it before, e.g. the Kabeljau and everything along was not particularly tasty. As everywhere prices have increased and were at the limit for value for money. We hope that this was a one time... More

We had dinner for 8 here recently: a super setting, though just too chilly in the evenings to sit outside. Staff were attentive and friendly throughout the evening. We went for the 4-course menu and even though every dish was good, at the end of the evening it all felt rather too fussy and over complicated. Prices were on the... More

You have to try this place if you are in Stellenbosch. The service, food, and wine are world class. Get there before dark and have a drink so you can take in the lovely view.

The food and the service was delicious and perfect. It couldn't have been better! I've never had such a amazing dinner before. But unfortunately something bad happened I have to say. When we were about to leave the restaurant and wen to our car, the window was broken...someone broke into our car and stole several things, luckily nothing essential. However... More

Haven't been to this farm in 24 years. The wines are still as fantastic as I remember them. The tasting venue features a deck with tables outside, with view Les across the vineyards. The wines for tasting are brought to your table. You have three tasting options. Take the full tasting option. Their single vineyard wines are a little over... More

Set in the rolling hills near Stellenbosch, can be a bit hard to find down a long country road. Sells all red wines - merlot, shiraz, Cab and blends. One of the favorite wines or Mandela and highly rated by oenologists and travel companies. A peaceful oasis to savor fine wine.

Waited an hour an 10 minutes to be presented with scraps of chips, dry meat (I requested medium rare) and soggy bits of lettuce meant to pass as a side salad. Will not set foot nor recommend this establishment to anyone. Sent my meal back and waitron was astute enough to compliment my bill for 2 adults and 1 child.

This place was truly amazing. The setting on the winery to everyone who was working there. Was sat outside to start with and we had a amazing G&T to start the night off and they had this cool trolley with all these different kinds of drinks in it. Inside was awesome to with a open kitchen so we could see... More

Can't ask anymore really. Amazing 4 course menu with wine pairing. The gin tonic I drunk was simply divine and the cheese cart full of African cheeses was fun and delicious. Great service , people who do their work with passion and it shows. Will definitely come back
