Modern but fairly bland. Very stiff atmosphere and only 3 local wines to taste, the rest is French. Bit of a waste for local tourists.

After researching wineries in the area, this was one my wife didn't want to miss. It was one of the nicer wineries we visited, and had lovely grounds with fantastic views.
The staff was friendly and knowledgable, and was able to answer all the questions we had about the wines we tried.
We tried most of the tasting menu and enjoyed their South African and French selections.
The atmosphere was relaxing and we enjoyed our time here. I would recommend Rupert & Rothschild to anyone looking for a nice winery in Franschhoek.

My friend and I had lunch at my favourite wine farm yesterday and it was amazing! We both had the double baked soufflé, sultanas and a hazelnut butter noisette! I had the sea bass variety of tomatoes fromage blanc , kataifi pastry and Sumer! Yummy! My friend chose the suger snap pea and lemon risottto, toasted macadamia nut, creme fraiche and asparagus!! This is a dish made in heaven!! Delicious!! The service was attentive but not intrusive. Our waiter Shane was a gem! This guy knows his wines!! All the wines were superb!! Baroness Nadine is my favourite and of course the Barron! The champagnes always take me back to the Rothschild champagne house in France!! I would like to thank Juliet and the fantastic team for an amazing experience!! Sublime cooking!! Love you guys and I will always come back with my friends!

I was really looking forward to experience the high tea at Antony Rupert.
I've been somehow disappointed, as it was way too busy/crowded for me. I assume it was due to the bad weather, which obviously reduced the sitting space.
The service was good and the food selection as well. The tea selection was basic for a high tea and such a nice and famous place that Antonij Rupert is...

The guy didn't tell a lot details about anything and he seems very confused and arrogant .He didn't care about our request to buy an old vintage wine from them. He was very unprofessional, not worth the money. Very sad - because the wine is fantastic and high class .We didn’t enjoy the tasting at all.

An absolutely unbelievably delicious meal.
Exquisitely prepared.
Large portions, reasonably priced.
This is my new favourite place.
The Gnocchi, the squid.
The bouiliabaisse, the chalamar beef, Apple tarte, fudge ice cream.
The wine pairing, the Champagne beyond superb and to top it all a bouquet of flowers given to each person in the restaurant.

Just extra special.

Situated on the road to Franschoek it is a must stop if you enjoy good red wine. The setting and ambiance is amazing and staff most helpful. We did not eat there but the restaurant setting looked amazing as well. Definitely recommend a stop here. Great wines!

We stopped of for wine tasting given that they make our favourite wines, and was very impressed with the service and atmosphere. The wine tasting was an excellent experience as well, the wines we tasted were just divine

Went for a lovely Sunday afternoon wine-tasting of local and international wines. The champagne is really a showstopper, and the opportunity to compare Bordeaux-style red blends from around the world is fascinating. You pay per glass and we were pleased to discover that a taster size is a decent half-glass so decent value. In summer book in the garden for the lovely relaxed atmosphere.
