Superb, superb, superb! Don’t delay ...just go! Fantastic food........what an experience. Stunning scenery. Excellent service. Gorgeous wines. Cant recommend this highly enough. The very best food we have had in 3 weeks in the Western Cape (& we have had some amazing food)......and I expect...it to remain in first position even after the next 3 weeks.
The sorrel soup is simply the most delicious ending to a meal that I have ever tasted.More
What a surprise. You drive through a little town, and then onto a dirt road for a good few kilometres and eventually you arrive at the gate to the Springfontein Wine Estate. This is the last place you expect to get a fine dining restaurant,...but fine dining is what you get. The restaurant only seats around 30 people and even though it is in a relatively far-flung location, it was full, and you need to book in advance. Fantastic food paired with wine from the Estate. I would probably not rush to go back, but I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.More
We ate at Springfontein Eats and slept at Springfontein Sleeps and we could hardly have chosen better.
"Eats" created dishes of the highest quality - fresh, interesting, delicious, imaginative - all were beautifully presented by staff who were charming, polite and attentive without being at...all intrusive.
After dinner, we did what its name promises - we slept - very peacefully.
We would urge you to make the journey whether from Europe or South Africa - you will not be disappointed.More
The farm is accessed via a 5km dirt road from Stanford, about a 40 minute drive from Hermanus. The setting is beautiful, and the whole experience truly exceptional. We started outside,with aperitifs and home made nibbles, and chose from the small-plates menu of 3 starters,...2 mains, and 3 desserts. We chose 3 starters, and 1 of each main and dessert. Moving to the inside area, which succeeds in being both sophisticated and rustic, we were given 2 different amuse bouches and 2 different digestifs in additions. Every single element was created and presented beautifully, absolutely World-class cuisine.
Superb wines from the farm, especially the Pinotage.
We were made very welcome by Susanne, who oversees the restaurant with great ate Timon to detail. Thank you!More
My husband and I had lunch at this wonderful restaurant and can only say that this is the best meal that we have had this year in the Western Cape.
The welcome, service, the waiter’s knowledge and then the incredible food, left us feeling that...this chef and restaurant should have Michelin stars if they existed here in SA.
We chose the 5 course option which came with several amuse bouches and a wonderful bottle of Springfontein pinotage.
We will certainly return next year and would recommend this place to anyone who appreciates food of this quality.
The drive from Stanford is slightly bumpy on the untarred road but it is worth it.....More
Wanted to eat here already last year, but they were fully booked. So this year we tried again. Beginning of December had lunch here. The weather was nice and sunny so we sat outside on the terrace.
The meals were fine, but the ambiance was...not so. Lots of flies around our plates. Not very nice.
Poor garden and herb garden.
Inside the restaurant looks better.More
I wish I could give them more stars!!!! Off the beaten track and not as commercialized as some of the other wine farms and what an amazing find!!
An absolute gastronomical explosion of flavours was served my Michellin Star chef Jurgen and amazing value for...money.
Great crew and great hospotality!!More
