The food was our highlight in South Africa. I have read some of the complaints of others here, and I think it's certainly a thing of personal preference. SERVICE: Waiters, somelier and assistents were very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Generally the atmosphere in Overture is...More

Used to be such a great restaurant - very good location, good food and good wines. Totally let down by rude and arrogant staff who have clearly had enough of their patrons. We all understand you work in a tough industry and that you get...More

In November 2007 Overture Restaurant, situated on Hidden Valley Wines - a wine farm anchored into the side of the Stellenbosch hills - opened its doors for the very first time. Starting from humble beginnings, Overture soon became a destination for great food, service and wines. Since then, Chef Owners Bertus Basson and Craig Cormack have taken Overture to new heights with accolades as prestigious as being in the Eat Out top 10 for five years in a row and acquiring three stars in the Rossouw's Restaurant guide for four years running.You will find Bertus behind the pots at Overture while Craig focuses on his salt range, Amouleh.
