Shockingly BAD. the burger I had is the worst I have ever had. The patty was dry and tasteless. Thick and square. Placed in the middle of a round dry bun. There was no tomato. A thin strip of processed cheese that just covered the patty and a little piece of lettuce. No sauce at all. Seven chips in a... More

If you're very relaxed about slow service and in the mood to spend more money than at the average restaurant, this is a nice way to spend an afternoon. The food is tasty and freshly prepared but overpriced! For every order, request and even clearing our dishes we had to flag down a waiter rushing past our table. At one... More

Beautiful venue and the waiters are friendly. But, the food takes far too long to arrive, and when it does it is overpriced and dreadful. The béarnaise sauce, for example, turned out to be congealed butter. Come for tea and scones but steer clear of the hot foods.

Good outing for some breakfast or a light lunch. Very nice views and a great shop. Be prepared to wait a bit for food, but it is worthwhile.

Have visited this place twice on our visits to South Africa and we are still blown away by the view, the food and the service. Well worth having the Cape Bobotie.......and to finish off the Devonshire Scones. Great value for money as usual.

A mid-morning coffee and scone has been a must on the way to Franschhoek as the views from here are stunning. Oh dear this is not the Hillcrest we have previously experienced - One of the scones had raw dough in the centre and the other was like a rock. The coffee was slopped in the saucer and the staff...

I can never go all the way to Stellenbosch without a visit to Hillcrest Berry Orchard and have something to eat. This time, I went for lunch. The menu is varied from fish, steak to quiche and salads. The quiche of the day is cooked fresh and, having asked what it was and being told it was cheese and bacon,... More

With a view to die for, excellent service and the freshest ingredients sourced by the kitchen, what is not to love. We loved it. Will be back for sure.

Best scones in the world and the jams are to die for. Treat yourself to breakfast nestled in their beautiful gardens overlooking the mountain ranges...its bliss

We stopped here for tea and scones on our way back from Stellenbosch. The service was great and very friendly. The scones are amazing, and the variety of jams to choose from cater for every taste. The view from the patio is fantastic. All in all a wonderful relaxing afternoon. Wonderful fresh and frozen berries can be bought on the... More
