After a wine tasting at De Grendel We had a delicious lunch on Saturday to celebrate my birthday. Every course was beautifully presented and tasted delicious The staff were very friendly and the waiter who gave us the tasting gave very good descriptions of the wine and we were able to decide which ones we preferred to go with our lunch.

We joined our son at the restaurant for a full on course meal, despite being a bit pricey, the food was excellent and hence, you do not mind paying a little extra for it. Service was really good as well as atmosphere and views.

I have visited De Grendel numerous times and they exceed my expectations every single time.
Service is attentive without being intrusive.
The ambience is welcoming and the view beautiful.
The food is served with exquisite pairings such as feta mousse, date and fig puree and jus that form taste sensations that guide you through a new journey with every bite.
Highlights on the menu include the Pork Belly, Karoo lamb and Tuna Tataki.
5 star food and perfection!

this place is located behind the industrial heartland of Cape Town and somewhat difficult to find. However once there is becomes an oasis of relaxation with beautiful views on table mountain. It is the closest vineyard to Cape Town and its wine is simply excellent, we drank their bubbly, the Sauvignon Blanc, the Rose and a well balanced red blend. The food is very creative and tasty throughout, from starter, main course to dessert, the lamb neck and chicken were moist and full of flavor. Service is unhurried and friendly, ambiance relaxed, the perfect place for a long lunch with friends.

I’ve lost count of the number of times I have visited De Grendel, but I do not see me stopping any time soon either. The food is simply delicious, the view is unbeatable and the service and atmosphere cannot be matched. Definitely my favourite restaurant in Cape Town.
