Travellers' Choice
Asara is an award-winning wine estate and luxury hotel in the heart of the Cape Winelands. The hotel offers warm hospitality, luxury accommodation, and the finest in food and wines - at highly competitive rates. A major feature of Asara is its location on the Polkadraai Hills just outside of Stellenbosch, which affords stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains, and creates a relaxed, get-away atmosphere. Asara is situated just 4kms from Stellenbosch and 25kms from Cape Town International Airport, making it ideal as a base from which to discover and explore the fabulous Cape Winelands, and further afield in the Western Cape.

THE most stunning views from this spectacular Wine Estate. Superb wines, awesome gin selection in the Sansibar, delicious pizza in the Bistro. Highly recommend a visit, whether it's to stay at their beautiful hotel, host a function or simply pop in for a gin or a bottle or two of wine.

We ordered a hake and chips and a burger. Over the top pricing to start with. R170 for the burger and R180 for the fish. The fish was off and had to be sent back and the chips were undercooked and so salty it was ridiculous. Never going back.

Dear Mr Caruana, Thank you for your visit to our Sansibar Bistro. We are sorry to hear you left so disappointed although our chef immediately reacted to your complaint by offering you a new dish and a complimentary sorbet. Our fish is sourced fresh from local fishermen and several portions had already been sold on the same day.The kitchen team checked the batch again without finding fault and when chef left your table you seemed satisfied. Mr Caruana, regarding the price we believe our menu is fairly priced considering the product and the beautiful setting we are able to offer. We would love to welcome you again sometime should you change your mind. Keep well & kind regards, The Asara Team

We visited Asara on Sunday and were so let down, the view is amazing but unfortunately that is where it ends, the food is pricey which would be acceptable if it was good, but it was not, some was so u edible we opened to take home but we’re advised that we were not allowed to take away. We then 3 times tried to order drinks but after an hour and a poor meal the drinks had still not arrived so we paid the bill which included a tip. The waitress did not provide any service and we were not even offered salt and pepper, perhaps the tip should be at the discretion of the patron and dependent on the service ?

I live in Stellenbosch, thus familiar with a lot of restaurants. I met a local friend for coffee. The Deli is still closed, therefore we had coffee on the restaurant verandah with one of the most beautiful views in Stellenbosch. Great was our surprise when the bill arrived at R45 per capuccino! Come on Asara, you need the locals, why are you charging way over the odds for a coffee which is nowhere near as good as our local roasteries!!! Hope you’ll address urgently

Dear Lilah, Thank you for your comment. Yes, you were right and we have re-visited and adjusted our coffee prices in the meantime. We did change our coffee supplier and it seems that a calculation error slipped through unnoticed, we apologize. Thanks again for reaching out Lilah. Please would you let us have your contact details? We would like to make sure that your next coffee with a view at Asara, is on us!
