About
Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern​, ​nature inspired cuisine’, inspired by a focus on our heritage​ as it draws upon​ the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa. ​ The menu ​seeks to​ take diners on a ​gastronomic ​journey, ​touching on points of nostalgia paired with an expertly crafted local and international wine list, artisanal cocktail, craft beer and a notable selection of single malt whiskeys. Herbs and a selection of vegetables on the menu are grown in the Estate's self sustained heirloom garden. The restaurant is set to establish itself as a premier fine dining destination locally and internationally and is now open for lunch and dinner

My wife and I continue to relish our visits to Cavalli; it is a dining experience with its innovative menu (especially for vegetarians), venue and service. In these COVID times it is also a venue where we are at ease given its screening, spacing, open...space and menu connection to our phones.More

I have been to Cavalli Restaurant many times and after visiting yesterday, I realised - again - that this is one of the best restaurants in the Winelands. The setting, views, ambience, service and food are equally good. Emma, our waitress was outstanding. I will...be back again and again.More

Cavalli is the top restaurant in Stellenbosch. There is no place that compares with this place. The food, wine and service are second to none, the atmpsthere is breath-taking, staff is well trained and super friendly. Everything works here. The open views are stunning, the...setting is modern. But coming back to the food this is exquisit fine dining at a fair price. It is here where I have always enjoyed the best springbok loin. Not many other restaurants serve venison anymore which is a shame. Cavalli does. The way the chef combines flavors is a mystery to me. He has the most creative ideas how to make food an extraordinary culinary experience for your gums. The quality of the food has not suffered even during the Covid 19 pandemic and I am estonished how this place kept its professionalism and delicious food top notch. All saftely measures are in place so you can feel safe and enjoy a romantic night out. Staff wears masks at all times, temperature is taken at the beginning of your evening and you feel safe and welcome. We have come here for many years and will continue to do so and recommend the place, so other can enjoy this extraordinary place. It is indeed "beauty for your gums, heart and soul!"More

Returned for their valentines six-course lunch after our first amazing experience in January. This is one of the best restaurants we have ever visited. From the friendly waiters, beautiful views to the fantastic food we enjoyed every moment. The restaurant is very accommodating to ensure...that you can enjoy every plate and drink they serve you. As a non-drinker, I particularly enjoyed their mocktails and coffee.More
