Visited this restaurant tonight. Tried two thirds of the dishes on the menu. All were creative, but only half of them were actually good. Can recommend the yellowtail and the beef. Others were mediocre. One of the dishes wasn’t prepared well. Meat overcooked, too dry...More

I've been dying to go to this restaurant but sadly, the experience was quite average. The food did not stand out and there was not a good enough variety of wines. It was cold inside the restaurant. There was also no ambiance.

Be prepared to stay 2.5 to 3 hours for this special experience. You literally drive to the end of the road and there you find Overture. A set price menu where you make choices of appetizer, main and dessert. The restaurant sommelier chose all the...More

This must be one of the best places to go for a romantic dinner. With the early winter sunset and cloudy skyline, this makes for a beautiful setting deep in the winelands. The food did not disappoint and we will definitely be back soon.

In November 2007 Overture Restaurant, situated on Hidden Valley Wines - a wine farm anchored into the side of the Stellenbosch hills - opened its doors for the very first time. Starting from humble beginnings, Overture soon became a destination for great food, service and wines. Since then, Chef Owners Bertus Basson and Craig Cormack have taken Overture to new heights with accolades as prestigious as being in the Eat Out top 10 for five years in a row and acquiring three stars in the Rossouw's Restaurant guide for four years running.You will find Bertus behind the pots at Overture while Craig focuses on his salt range, Amouleh.
