what a stunning venue and the cold meat platter is excellent - service a little on the slow side and the wine prices a little high - but well worth a visit

Andries, our waiter was a huge highlight of our visit! He is a gem. Starters were delicious! Chicken liver parfait and smoke trout crepes. Our mains were the curry (best roti...wow) and the fillet. We were enjoying our food so much, hence no pics of...the mains :) Lovely setting and great food! Would love to try their other menu as this was a Mothers Day set menu. I'm sure that will be just as delicious!More

We have booked a group for lunch at the Bistro. They made a mess with the orders and the food was absolutely terrible. Burgers were left as really not good and chicken pieces in one of their dishes were not eatable. Tried to get a...feedback from the managment, but everything was denied and no apology was done. You need to do better !More

We had a lovely breakfast here - french toast and the omelette. Really good coffee, good service and extensive deli to browse on your way out.

We visited for Saturday lunch. The bistro was very busy, so unfortunately there was no opportunity to sit outside on the verandah. The menu was imaginative, with many items from which to choose. Service was prompt and very obliging, and the food was good and...tasty.More

After a missable experience at lunch at Val du Charon we arrived at Joostenberg Bistro for a coffee, cake a cheer up. What a wonderful idea. We walked thro this wonderful butchery/deli and then were ushered into a stone floored cafe with wooden tables and...chairs. Beautifully laid out gardens and views ....so relaxing. Brilliant service, beautifully clean and the pastries and desserts were fresh and deliciously stunning..,,,,,,we definitely will come back here for lunch . All of us bought meat, spices, bread, veg and coconut pudding to take home Yum Recommend a visit.......you will go back😄More

We went for a brunch and were pleasantly surprised! The choices were plenty and when we asked about something off menu it was served with a smile! The problem here is that there are too many choices!

We stopped here for a quick breakfast as we were leaving Stellenbosch for CT and it was tasty, well-priced with delicious homemade iced-tea and good service. There were kiddies options as well, which always makes traveling with a child easier. The shop has some nice...goodies, and I always enjoy browsing the butchery/bakery area. COVID protocols were also observed and there are loads of outdoor tables, which is the way to go in these times.More
