The farm is about 5 ks outside Stanford. We were staying overnight and booked what we thought would be a standard restaurant but were delighted to have a tasting-type menu. There were three options - 4, 5 or 6 courses and with options within that...More

We had a wonderful afternoon: excellent food, great service, special meals made for the kids and an exquisite wine list, filled with Bordeauxs. First time to Springfontein Eats and it will not be the last!

This was a 60th birthday feast of epic taste adventure! From the delicate squid to the smoked fish starters, from the pork with root veg, to the tastiest lamb and beans ever! All interspersed with the chef's delicious tidbits and topped with a mango and...More

First class innovative dishes served in an informal rural winery setting. We really enjoyed the venison fillets and the amazing tomato and squid, amongst other excellent dishes. Interesting wine list but we could have done with a little more guidance. Service friendly but slightly lacking.

Friends recommended the Springfontein Eats restaurant to us and it did not disappoint. The menu was cryptic but stirred excitment and every dish that came out of the kitchen was exceptional. The dessert we had (basil ice cream, passion fruit puree and preserved tree tomatoes)...More

Lunch served at 12:30 pm Thursday thru Sunday Dinner served at 06:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday Set on a working wine farm, we keep things down to earth, in all senses of the word! Home grown and foraged herbs and veggies, locally sourced fish and meats. Throw the white gloves out the window, and keep all the flavour and finesse a Michelin starred team brings to the table! No BYO, as we have put together an extensive wine list, with South African boutique wineries, overseas gems, and our own Springfontein wines, including older vintages, so everyone should be able to find something special to appeal to their palate, and pair with their meal! We look forward to meeting you, treating you, and showing you what we are all about!
