We love going out for breakfast but are so picky because to us you only get good and bad breakfast, nothing in between. That being said, the standard of food was so good and then some. Truly well done ..... the only reason this is a 4 star review is the service was so so so slow. 20min for 2... More

For entree:smoked Springbok carpaccio followed by King fish clip are on a bed of red pepper gnocchi and rocket. Delicioso! A 2012 Cirrus shiraz with entree and an Ernie Els Rosè with the fish. Super.

When golfers open restaurants, they're typically subpar experiences. But the Big Easy really drives it home. These folks are serious about their game! We loved the atmosphere and the food was excellent! The grilled prawns were very simply delicious and I easily could have eaten a couple plates more. The rack of lamb was extremely tender and tasty as well... More

Having followed Ernie for many years, it was too good an opportunity to pass up a visit to this restaurant. The building has been beautifully restored. Our steaks were perfectly cooked. There is a room packed with trophies and photographs; well worth a look.

We recently had a business lunch here - there were 9 of us and we were the only table in the room, which is perfect for a business discussion. The music was a bit too loud for the room, and it was mostly boybands from the early 2000s - not the best choice. The service was good enough, and the... More

I have visited this restaurant on two occasions over the last year, once with my family and the second time for business with colleagues and a client. The service was excellent and the food top quality. As a local I feel this restaurant 's prices are relatively high, but not unreasonable. I do think that there are other restaurants one... More

An intimate group dinner spent in a cosy setting. Despite the relatively large no. of guests, we had a very quiet dinner. Perfect setting while staying in Stellenbosch area. William attended to us and was very accommodating. Food is great too! From the salad, steak, fish and prawns. We thought price is reasonable enough, considering the quality and ambiance. :)... More

I popped in for a quick meal and ended up having about amazing salad. It is stunning to sit on the balcony and watch the locals and tourists strolling down the street while having your meal. One can sit inside but I preferred watching people from the balcony.

Thank Jenny W
