We stopped here on the way to friends in Riebeek Kasteel and, in the end, were disastrously late for the appointment. The food was excellent and we will certainly revisit this hidden gem to try out the rest of the menu. I recommend the pork belly, best I ever had. Take an afternoon or evening off and enjoy!

We attended a birthday party here and the food was in the form of large party platters. Everything was delicious but we would have appreciated more vegetarian options. This is possibly not the fault of the restaurant but the birthday person's request.

Thank you for turning a dinner into a occasion to remember! Superb food in a cozy atmosphere, backed by excellent service. I can definitely recommend this hidden away jewel outside Wellington. It is worth a visit. You might walk in there as strangers but you will leave as friends. Oude Wellington, we will be back!

Visited Oude Wellington Restaurant for dinner. I had the pork belly. Usually I don't eat pork but I felt a bit adventurous to try something new. What a pleasant surprise it was! The most flavorsome piece of pork with many fresh vegetables which was prepared to perfection. Price wise it might seem pricey at first but with all the vegetables,fresh... More

We come again and again for years and just fell in love with the Place oude Wellington restaurant. The food is made with love and we strongly recommend the pepper crusted fillet! Meat is like velvet and the pepper crust kisses your tongue. You are always helped as a family member. U have to come and try out

We recently went in a big group for dinner to Oude Wellington and the experience was absolutely wonderful. I cannot thank Susannah and 'the viking' for the most hospitable evening. The staff were permanently on hand and nothing was to much trouble for anyone. Out of a group of 14 with each person having starters, mains and deserts, we were... More

We were really looking forward to eating here but were sorely disappointed! We got chatting to patrons next to us (who raved about it) and suggested we try the Camembert for starters, which we enjoyed. We wanted to wait a while before ordering further but our waiter would not hear of it. He said the chef prepared everything together and... More

We stayed at Oude Wellington Estate. They told us that restaurant was run by different operators. All four of reached same conclusion independently that food was very pricey (for an out of the way restaurant) and not very good. Between us we had pea soup, tomato soup, chicken livers, curry, and pork belly. Of the 4 of us I was... More

First time we went, the chef made my fillet medium/rare, although I asked for welldone, but we let it slip. Second time, we took other people, this time politely asked for welldone fillet,but chef took it on himself to serve me rather some kind of over ripen shank meat pressed together to look like fillet. Are you so stupid that... More
