Sadly we had an ‘unwhelming’ experience in the restaurant last Friday evening. Service average, food ok. We wrote separately to Jordan’s before posting here but no response. Very disappointing especially as there was no reply - we won’t be back.

Superb location with amazing views, great service, food was fabulous, the right sized portions and well priced. The wine especially from the estate is great and again well priced. Overall a very nice experience and will return

Jordan was on my to do list for a while, so maybe I had too many expectations... I liked the fact that all the table are facing the garden and views on the dam and mountain, but I found the atmosphere a bit cold... Re...the food, we didn't really know what to expect, as there is no menu displayed on internet. That was a 3 course menu, with bread at arrival. I found the taste a bit blend. No sparkle or explosion in the mouth (I chose the pork belly as a starter, the artichoke velouté as main, and the nectarines as dessert). The highlight was the dessert though. Refreshing and light...More

Just celebrated the worst New Years Eve dinner in decades. Same menu served, not a sight of any celebratory decoration and the only change on the menu was a fish option of yellow tail which was dry.

Since years we come quite frequently and we not once we were disappointed. At all kind of weather you sit comfortably and the view is great. Most enjoyable the menu. The variety is good and there is something for everyone. For desert try the poppy...seed Soufflee. You won't find no better one anywhere else.More

We have been coming to Jardine at Jorden since he opened up 10 years ago and up until today we have always loved our experience. Setting marvellous, wines outstanding but the food this time was a big disappointment. We both enjoyed our starters, duck terrine...and beetroot, but the hake main I couldn’t even finish. It was bland and heavy. Breadcrumbs on fish plus batter on the kale on top. I rarely leave food on my way late. The sirloin was ok only. The lavender panne cotta was really not good. Very sloppy and boring sides which accompanied it. Valrhona chocolate pudding very nice but hard to get that wrong. Over all can’t believe how this restaurant has changed. Let’s hope they can get back up again in the top 10 like they used to be!More

We had lunch at the restaurant with a table on the terrace which has stunning views of the Drakensberg mountains. The food, which is a set lunch with a choice of different options, was as good as ever, the Jordan wines delicious, the service impeccable....We are looking forward to our next dining experience there. Try the mussels in coconut sauce . The souffle is to die for.More

With a very limited menu our expectations were high for this upmarket restaurant. My lamb starter was good, but my wife's leek tart while tasty, the leeks were tough. Both main courses of sirloin and hake were excellent but the calamari with the hake was...only squid heads which my wife doesn't eat. This was not pointed out when we ordered the dish "without squid heads". The frangipani dessert was devoid of any almond flavour. All in all a bit of an up and down experience. I cannot understand why the Chameleon wine range is not available by the glass. Were "forced" to buy a bottle each of Rose and Red and take the leftovers home. Irritating! (We had tasted the rest of the range and found them too young or not to our taste whereas the Chameleon range is made for early drinking and is the winery's best seller.) We left with our "Great Expectations" unfulfilled.More

The staff are well trained, attentive but not intrusive. Food is imaginative with clever flavour combinations. Memorable experience - we will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon

A brand new experience. The staff is attentive and give good recommendations. One of the better restaurant experiences you can have in Stellenbosch South Africa. Would highly recommend all friends and family travelling to South Africa.

No this is not really child friendly at all - the main restaurant is really 'fine dining' so nothing on the menu for youngsters. It has to be booked weeks in advance and as one of the award winning restaurant in SA it is... More

Hi, I am sure they are open for dinner on Friday but have no idea how busy they are. I suggest you give them a call.
