About
Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since. An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands. The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients.

We decided to have a wine tasting of the Steenberg Flagship Range. The lady presenting our tasting had an incredible knowledge of the farm and local history. This complemented her knowledge of the wines, both those from the estate and others from the region excellently....If possible, ask for Chanel to guide you through your Steenberg experience!More

I loved my experience at Bistro Sixteen82! The service was impeccable, sincere and I felt taken care of and welcomed. This is rare. Thank you. My Eggs Benedict was one of the best I have had in the Mother City. Compliments to the Chef and...kudos to the Steenberg Team who after a very challenging year have not dropped the ball.

After a fantastic wine tasting we wanted to go for lunch into the bistro at Steenberg. They offered for a glas of Steenberg Rose RD 64,00 - to accompany the food. We told them that just on next table, at the wine tasting a bottle...of the same wine would cost RD 86,00 but we've been told that as per management this is the case. So we left. We spend more than RD 680,00 for wine tasting and bought wine and than we had that bad experience. This is not correct form the management.More

we had a New Years day lunch at the bistro. The venue is attached to the winery but due to the lock down rules no alcohol was served. This however was made up by the food served by the excellent staff. All covid protocols were...enforced and followed by all patrons. The desert menu is really a winner and compliments to the staff once again - worth a visit, even if for the deserts.More
