My wife and I went for an Easter lunch special at Die Werf. We enjoyed a set menu including salad, fish, beef short ribs, lamb rib, and more……The portion sizes were very healthy😁 It was excellent and the service was fantastic. We also enjoyed the...spectacular views of the countryside: There is lots to do on the estate, including picnics, wine tasting and walks. The beef short rib is one of the best I’ve ever had. Only, slight, flaw is that the lamb ribs (although very tasty) were a bit tough.More

So I am writing this review as a local and not a tourist. This restaurant caters for overseas visitors with its prices. If u are visiting from overseas then good value for money. But not for the locals. Food is mediocre . If u are...a carnivore u will be happy to eat here. Steaks amazing .

We asked for a table on deck to watch the sunset whilst we had wine but was told it’s only for people who are having dinner ! And was talked down to at the door in a very rude manner ! But we did go...around to the gardens to realize there are people just drinking ! So I felt discriminated against and wouldn’t go back there ! I don’t understand because champagne and alcohol can easily rack up a bill that costs more than food so why ? People of color need to be treated better at this restaurant!More

We went there on the recommendation of our tour guide. The food was inedible. The service was absolutely terrible. They told us to order three or four dishes per person. There was so much food left on the table. We could’ve fed 10 more people....The lamb was fatty. The bread was good as was the butter. And the wine was terrible.More

Excellent venue for a family outing. A lovely outdoor play area to keep the children entertained - under your supervision, where you can also hire bikes. We ordered the picnic under the trees - perfect weather and surroundings. My only negative is the plastic packaging...of the many delicious dips and sauces that are in the picnic hamper. I would have preferred a more sustainable option to the plastic. We would definitely go again. However, next time, I will purchase the food and snacks from the Deli - hopefully not in plastic.More

We had an incredible meal at Boschendal on Tuesday 21st Feb. The service from Warren was very attentive. He was knowledgeable as to the wines on offer and looked after us very professionally. We had a great walk in the gardens and art gallery afterwards....I’d recommend Boschendal to anyone including families with kids. We hope to return soon.More

We know the Delhi from years before and have always had good meals there. Today we wanted to try the restaurant. What a disappointment. No atmosphere, such a reduced menu with little things and with only 2 meat maindishes and the food was very mediocre....The meat was very hard, the octopus salad was rather tough and everything was topped with mayonnaise. No good restaurant serves like that. And you can otherwise eat so well in South Africa.More
