Whereas the wine has always been fantastic, the quality of the food has merely gone from good to great over the last few years. It is with some bemusement that I read the comments made by others about the owner. Agreed, she is not going...to placate customers with courteous falsehoods, but if you take the time to have a conversation you will realise she has an amazing dry sense of humour. If dry (including wine) is not to your taste, then I am sure there are other places that will gladly lick your derriere. Personally we will continue to return there for a truly great (and informed) wining and dining experience.More

I'm never disappointed in my lunches at Urban Wines. The quality is always consistent. Added benefit: good-sized portions! The best part is the friendly service. You can't go wrong.

We have been supporting the shop, since it's local. But owner/manager treats like sh.... unfriendly, we did not feel welcome and was offered the Breakfast menu at 1pm! Upon asking what else there is to order, we never got feedback. Sadly, this is an example...why local businesses go down the drain...More

My absolute favourite venue to go to in Durbanville. You can buy a wide range of the best local and national wines directly from the establishment, which means by paying a small corkage, you have access to the biggest wine list to enjoy with the...food on offer. The menu is small but caters for all tastes and the food is consistent with excellent quality. The service is great.More

We entered the building yesterday and no one helped us. The waitress looked so unfriendly and gave us no direction. We stood there and she just walked away. We looked at, what seems to be the owner/manager, and he was just sipping on his wine...and staring at us... We walked. Never returning again.More

I was told so much about this little place. Once I arrived I wanted to take some photos of the place to show some friends that will be visiting South Africa in December. On doing so a lady approached me while I was drinking some...coffee and told me "who gave you permission to take photos in the shop". I explained that I am sorry and that I did not know, when I proceeded to ask if I can she said with a very bad tone "NO you cannot" and moved on. If this is they way they treat possible future clients I will not put my foot there again. I have also seen that I was not the only patron that had this issue.More

Family and friends have often joined me for a most pleasant breakfast experience at Urban Wines over the past 9 months. This venue is unique and the menu is limited but special. A different dining experience surrounded by special wines, niche liquor and cigars. The...staff and kitchen team are friendly, caring and always at the top of their game. We have had the best omelettes ever at Urban Wines. At least one restaurant in the Western Cape that appreciate the art of omelette making. The bacon, feta and cheese omelette will have you hooked. The bread is most special and the ciabatta toast in a class of its own. The coffee is at a professional level and the atmosphere so relaxing that you find it difficult to leave. Long live the omelette king at Urban Wines.More

4 of us went to Urban Wines recently for lunch. What a nice experience. We loved the setup, the food was excellent and a wide range of drinks. Nice atmosphere, friendly and eficient staff. We enjoyed it so much that we are going again. I...would recommend the place to any one. Since speaking to friends about Urban Wines so many have also said that people have told them of the nice place. So when in Durbanville soon, go there for breakfast or lunch. It is worth it!!!More
