Yesterday we took friends to the Bodega Restaurant for the Easter Family Feast. It was our first time at Dornier Wines. We loved the atmosphere of the Estate and so the Bodega restaurant itself. They have a lovely playground that is suitable for younger and...More

Bodega has some serious issues to sort out before they can even consider themselves a successful restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant is dull, with the only sounds coming from the plethora of screaming, crying children running around and the laughter of nonchalant parents as...More

This seems to be more a restaurant that caters for the tourist than the local. The food is expensive for the portions that one gets. You have to have starters and main course otherwise you will leave hungry. The food is well plated but that...More

Had a lovely family, Sunday lunch. Food was very good. Wine was fantastic. Best part was the service from Percy. Really went out of his way to make us comfortable.

Beautiful location and fabulous lunch. Service a little slow but with views and food like this, who cares?! Presentation of food was first class and inexpensive for the flavours and quality - well worth a visit.

We had such a great evening! Percy is always a great waiter and ambassador for the brand. We could not fault the food or wine - truly one of our favourite places to dine in Stellenbosch. Top class food and wine and service. Thank you!

We had lunch here today, and the food was really outstanding! Our only problem on such a beautiful day, was the lack of service at our table. Due to many guests we had to wait almost 1 hr to get our starters and another long...More

Impromptu Sunday lunch at Dornier. The service was excellent, they offered us a free wine tasting of their newest wines. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The Restaurant setting is exquisite right in the mountains of Stellenbosch. Can highly recommend this restaurant.

Part of the Dornier Wine Estate, this is a great place to enjoy the best in life. Spend time with your family on the generous verandah and pair some great Stellenbosch wines with dishes from a creative seasonal menu.You can taste our wines at the table or at the Wine Lounge.
