What an amazing restaurant. From the time we walked in the staff where so welcoming there was a sense of order between everyone and the restaurant was busy. Our waiter Mr Harley (nickname - because he owns a Harley) was on point with wine choice, food choice, table settings and we changed our order 3 times, he was friendly and... More

For a casual steak or a good pizza with a bottle of local wine La Pineta is always a good choice and you can't beat the sunset over the Tafelberg

The location is very scenic, with a view on Table Mountain in the distance, making LP great for sundowners and dinner. The starter was excellent: consisting of salmon and shrimps in a bed of salad - apparently this is yet to be added to the menu! The lamb shank was to die for, and the linefish (yellowtail) also very well... More

It is a great value what you get for the price. Server was happy, friendly and made a great job. Just to be recommended. Don't forget to... More

A very nice place, though besides the main road from Stellenbosch to Somerset West unfortunately a little hard to find, with excellent food and a South-African-typical warm and friendly service.

What a lovely place.....we had an excellent meal of prawn curry and lamb shank. Friendly, attentive service. Lovely play area for the kids which you can see from the deck. Definitely on my list of favourite restaurants.

We have now visited South Africa for seven years on the run and learned of La Pineta, initially from British Airways crew who were regular visitors. It has been a very firm favourite of ours and it has never, ever, disappointed. We arrived this week for a lengthy stay and of course, immediately booked for dinner. La Pineta is our... More
