Overture restaurant is definitely a five-star dining experience but that does not mean everyone will like all of it. The venue is fantastic with beautiful views and the restaurant is very comfortable with well sized tables that aren’t too close together. Heaters keep everything cosy. The...More

Absolutely breath taking. The views and surrounds are simply magical! Sit on the deck over the small lake and drown in the imposing mountains which seem to embrace this piece of heaven. The wine and lamb burger also took my breath away....

Overrated overture. Restaurant trying to prepare meals beyond its capability. The hake was overcooked and dry with no taste, whereas the poppyseed and lemon soufflé was undercooked, running with egg and floor. Although most of the meal was left untouched the service staff showed no...More

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.
