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

We have been going to Hillcrest for many years now, and have always loved it. However earlier this week we had a very disappointing visit. We hadn't booked but the restaurant wasn't busy, and we were able to sit outside. However the staff seemed very pre-occupied with their hand held computers. This meant that they were all staring at them... More

Continuously & consistently a great place to visit & dine! Always a " hit" with overseas visitors & hence my umpteenth return visit. The view from the outdoor dining area is memorable. Meals on offer cover a wide range & cater to all tastes incl. children. Service (aided by technology) is fast, friendly & highly efficient.The leek Risotto (R85.00) is... More

We visited the Hillcrest Berry Orchard on our way home from a camping trip. We were 4 couples and 2 children. We ordered an array of dishes, from starters, mains, desserts and from the children's menu. Every single person enjoyed their food and we all left very satisfied. For me, the food was a little on the pricey side, but... More

The location is legendary. Mom had scones with clotted cream she really enjoyed. I had flammkuchen the base was stale and difficult to chew very tough. The bacon was precooked and tasted old. If one is going to put this on the menu then make it fresh please. Very disappointing! Service was average.
