Unexpected in a rural setting
Mar 2014 • Friends
We were lucky enough to stumble on this restaurant, as we were staying nearby at the Standford river lodge. We gathered booking was normally essential, but we arrived on a quiet Friday, and there was only one other table of ten. The food and service was superb and it was not just a dinner but a dining experience. Some of the constituent menu combinations sounded strange but worked well together. I liked all the little palette tasters and cleansers which were served between courses.

We had the most delicious 5 course dinner. Their service was out of this world. It was perfect... The idea of all the chefs bringing us the first meal was beautiful.

Fantastic
Feb 2014 • Friends
A remote but beautiful setting and certainly worth making the effort. We have now dined here twice and the food is remarkable. The quality of the fresh ingredients and the extent to which the kitchen goes to achieve truly remarkable tastes and experiences needs to be experienced to be believed. The local wines are great and the service is perfect, truly professional and seamless. We cannot wait to go back! Paul and Vicky Richards, Lewes, England

Wine tasting at Springfontein
Feb 2014 • Friends
We went with friends so were a party of 4. We were staying at Mosaic, way up on a dirt road out the back of Stanford, but worth the dust and bumpy ride. You pass some awesome wine producers too - half way along is Springfontein, and their wines are some of the best I have tasted.
It was Sunday morning - we spent too long at Haverfords the day before so arrived ready to taste wine just as they were shutting up on Saturday. So there we are almost standing outside the door waiting for them to open up to taste their wines.

We had the pleasure of being shown around the cellars and then up to the tasting area where we tasted our way through the complete range. The wines here span every pocket depth and credit card limit! It is most certainly a worthwhile trip up the dirt road just to taste wines. If you plan in fight, you can then stay for lunch.

For us, that is another trip!

We had a great evening there, and everything was fantastic. As said by other reviewers, Susanne is a great host, the dinner was extraordinary, the wine too. Very unexpexted experience in that area, a must-go. We will be back :-)

We had the great pleasure of lunching at Springfontein last weekend. It was truly a superb experience. We loved the venue, the food was beautifully presented and quite delicious, great wine and exceptional hospitality and service. Can't wait to go again in February

Amazing! The best wines in area!
Absolutely loved this place. They have an excellent wine maker that took his time with us and even gave us a private tasting in the cellar straight out of the barrels of their new wines that haven't been released yet. Stunning setting close to the river down a small road after going through Stanford village. An absolute must. I will return again for more tasting and to fill my car with excellent wine to take home.

Wonderful wine tasting experience
Jun 2013 • Couples
We were hosted for a wine tasting experience with the winemaker. He was extremely inviting and went above and beyond in allowing us to experience Springfontein wines -- he even took us into the cellar for a taste of the wine directly from the barrel! We will most definitely be back.

An absolute feast on the senses
Nov 2013 • Friends
For those that really want an explosion of senses, fantastic hosts & staff to rival any restaurant floor an absolute fantastic times awaits you. Jurgen (chef) will tantalize your tastebuds & Susanna (front of house & owner together with Jurgen) will bowl you over with hospitality!

I had the pleasure to enjoy fantastic meals in amazing restaurants here in SA & in Europe but at Springfontein Eats you are taken to another level...

Veggies made 3 ways, you have no idea how he does it, to fake truffel (that tastes like real truffles!) to rabbit made in ways you can only imagine...

Highly recommended & turn your nose towards Stanford Village & go & enjoy a fantastic time on this great wine estate & restaurant!
