Wijnhuis is always a good spot for delicious food. There is something on the menu for everyone and is reasonably priced for stellenbosch. Their wine is highly overpriced however. Call ahead and find out if you can bring your own bottle and pay corkage 💁🏻

They were very kind & squeezed us in when the restaurant was very busy. Service was good but food very average. Not up to the standard of the same chain we visited in Newlands.Would give it another chance.

This the first time we have visited this restaurant which was recommended to us. We weren't disappointed. The menu is large and varied, and we all found something that appealed. The wine list is also extensive, but tends to be on the high end side....More

Probably the best place to taste wines in Stellenbosch. They have an excellent selection of wines by the bottle, glass and tasting sizes.

So well located in the heart of Stellenbosch. Make a booking as they are usually full and this is testament to their food, drinks and service. Very vibey hangout, friendly staff, great view of the mountains if you're dining upstairs.

I looked at the website and reviews, it mostly sounds great. But living a student life does include a certain budget! Would like to know if it's overpriced/expensive but totally worth it? I looked at the website but no prices came about, and reviews didn't talk too much about pricing. Cheers

I think we spent about Rand 400 per person, including pre-dinner drinks. We were travelling from the UK and it all seemed amazingly cheap compared to London. I think by SA standards it isn't cheap.
