Had lazy Sat supper. Ravioli & bobotie. Very tasty & generous servings. Reasonable wine selection. Milk tart was superb. Service good, not very fast though. All reasonably priced.

The welcoming was underwhelming with the greeter pointing out where I couldn't sit. Try pointing out where I can sit! We ordered 4 drinks, 3 actually arrived, 2 were actually drinkable. I didn't eat but the food looked pretty good.

Description
Jonkershuis Constantia is nestled in the historic core of the Groot Constantia Wine Estate next to the historic Manor House and surrounded by ancient oak trees. Your first impression is dominated by sweeping views across the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, down the valley to the enveloping coastline of False Bay.

This family owned and managed bistro boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining, to typical Italian village gatherings in their vine covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, were children can safely play reminiscent of a bygone era..

Partner Chris Coetzee, a father of two energetic young sons says, "Our close proximity and strong association with Iziko Museums is very important to me, it is a privilege for my children to be raised surrounded by so much of their heritage."
The rich cultural history of Jonkershuis lends a magical and old world charm to any occasion held at the beautiful Jonkershuis.

Tammy Botbyl (partner), "The strong legacy of history and tradition has inspired many couples to share their vows here and celebrate their union in style. It is a privilege for us to be part of the beginning of so many new legacies."
