    Nice friendly atmosphere, staff very helpful and generous. We tried both the eight feet red and white blends, together with some off their delicious pizzas for lunch. Tables are shaded buy some large trees and well spaced out. The owner of the rabbit hole (the cottage where we stayed in Riebeek-Kasteel - said you could let the kids roam free here) As there were no kids with us we roamed free ourselves. They also do a lot of olive and other products grown on the estate, including the obvious olives, but also olive caviar and a sweet dried fig roll which goes well with cheese. Well worth a visit.

    What a gem of a craft beer shop! We stopped in for a tasting and were in for a real treat. For R80 per person, we sampled 7 beers, 2 ciders and a gin. Such value for money and the beer is very good. We were served by Cosmos, who is knowlegable, humorous, super friendly and a really good ambassador for Garagista. There are very hilarious posters up on walls about some of their beers. No trip to Riebeek Kasteel would be complete without a visit to this brewery.

    Myself and friends Googeled places to visist in Riebeeck Kasteel to taste wine and were surprised that Meerhof has a Craft beer and Wine tasting available. The trip was with friends and we stopped there first. The men did the the craft beer tasting which was great except no explanation of the the style of beers whats so ever. Just a chart with the beer discription on it, and the beers ploked in frontof us. Beers were generally good though. Next the Wine tasting not bad R50 for 6 wines and I picked the wines that between two people, a couple sharing, could taste almost there entire range - which all couples did. That been tasting 12 wines, on my advise. Wines were good especially the Sauvignon blanc and a few others. Prices good, staff freindly and worth visiting. Great view over the valley of Reibeeck Kasteel as well.

    Gallery owner, very friendly. Willing to engage and explain the works on show. First encountered this Gallery many years ago when they were exhibiting sculptures from Marke Meyer. Unfortunately that time all the sculptures were already sold. Managed to source one at a later date. Visited again when we were in this lovely friendly town. Currently showing work from a number of African artists very interesting, some of which is an African twist on Andy Warhol. There is also exhibits from the gallery owner's own mother, depicting her journey as a refugee at the end of WWII from Eastern Prussia (now part of Poland) driven out by the on coming Russian Soviet troops. Recommend a visit. If the current paintings / exhibits are not to your taste, then I would suggest you go back next time you are in town. As mentioned above they change the exhibits quite frequently

    The lady in the tasting room was very helpful and took us on a short cellar tour explaining things. We tasted some lovely wines and bought quite a bit. Even though when you walk in it feels a bit industrial and not your typical wine tasting facility it was nice.

    What a lovely venue and being able to taste all the varieties of olives, a wonderful experience. The prices are good and the variety is excellent. Beautiful spot.

    So, we had a day to spend in Riebeek Kasteel after visiting Kloovenburg or however this is spelled. Came into town and checked into The Royal Hotel just across from the wine shop. Went over to see what was going on - have heard a lot about the shop, the tastings and this Anton guy. Got to talk to both him and the staff. Told them I had this request - wanted a certain experience - wanted a fantastic Chardonnay experience - the had a talk going for about 5 minutes and then they decided - handed me a bottle and said. This is what you're looking for. Took the bottle outside and it was a blast. While sippin' this bottle we had a nice talk. It is not a café - it is a wine shop so eat your bread and olives before you go there. But do go!

    The titles caption makes me smile. The owner of the shop greeted us with a hearty hello and a smile.

    We started walking about the display area when the owner said: "you browse books not olives, you must taste olives. That's how you experience them!"

    Needless to say we tasted a whole variety of fantastic olives, olives mustard as well as olive oils.

    This shop fits with the Riebeeck Kasteel ambiance and is not overly commercialised.

    We walked away with great purchases and had to have some of the local gin to take home with us.

    A fascinating shop with something for everyone. A pleasure just to walk around but loads of “treasures” to buy. Really helpful staff snd owner. It’s a “must visit”.

    Wanted to buy a book, a passerby recommended Aitsa.

    It’s a real little nook with bits and bobs. Jams, toffees, lovely leather pieces and all sorts. Presented well and you could stroll around without feeling rushed.

    Staff are friendly, a nice range of items and a useful second hand book corner.

    New, old, cheap and expensive - you will find some interesting old items here. My daughter found a very funky pendant light for her bedroom. Take your time and look in all the nooks and crannies.
