We drove out to the beautiful estate of Boschendal in Stellenbosch to celebrate a special friend’s birthday with his wife and his mum. Although there is a gourmet restaurant next door, we chose the rustic deli dining option under the trees and well worth it it was. Amongst the dishes we enjoyed were a tasty bobotie pie with a salad... More

We have been over to this picnic many times over the years. The venue has moved since last here, the Rhone picnic hasn't the stunning views, walled in with visible electric fencing to be seen. The staff were not as helpful, even non existent at times. The food it self I must say was good, although no spoons in basket... More

Boschendal has a unique and peaceful atmosphere. The food is excellent and everything is produced on the farm. We loved the resident chickens! The are as friendly as the staff. The wine we tasted was of excellent quality. Definitely a must for anyone wanting to experience a truly authentic and unforgettable Cape winelands venue.

Went with friends from Scotland for brunch and had a very good meal Eating out of doors under the large oak trees is so refreshing. The waitress had a good sense of humour and assisted us with well with all our queries, the service was quick and the food very good. The hamburger patty was particularly good in that it... More

The family and I visited the Deli at Boschendal today, 7 January 2017 for a late lunch. What a great experience. Nice outdoor setting under the trees on a magnificent wine farm. Very enjoyable afternoon. Will definitely visit again.

The two of us stopped for a pre-booked picnic at the Rhone House side of the estate (there is another option entitled Werfs). The setting, underneath oak trees looking out onto mowed lawns encased by three 19th Dutch-style homesteads, was simply delightful. Our waitress supplied us with a picnic hampered comprising locally sourced produce including salads (potato, green and shredded... More

Having a picnic at Boschendal is very easy and very pampering. You just order, pay and point in what direction you would like to have your seat, and staff will bring everything to you, the picnic basket as well as the blankets or even chairs if needed. They also come by every once in a while to take another drinks... More

We walked into this stunning winery and were drawn to the beautiful setting of the restaurant. We were seated on one of the terrace tables overlooking the stunning gardens. The menu looked fantastic, all courses using some local produce. We had 3 courses of heaven, 2 people in our group even ordered twice on the main course. The wine was... More

My wife and I have just returned from an excellent dinner at the restaurant at this winery. As a main course we shared the chuck steak which was a beautifully presented piece of beef, consisting of meat tender enough to be fillet as well as an additional portion of sirloin. The roast potatoes were the best either of us have... More
