Description: Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since. An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands. The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides fine dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit. Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, love to create food which is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness. "My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels to Thailand I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. Love. I cook with love and my food is love." Internationally, Bistro Sixteen82 has been recognised in the list of 20 of the World’s Best Winery Restaurants by Canada’s renowned Wine Access magazine. Locally, listings included prominent mentions in Fleur du Cap’s Top 100 Places; Eat in Cape Town; and EAT OUT’s Best Bistros list.

We decided to have a wine tasting of the Steenberg Flagship Range. The lady presenting our tasting had an incredible knowledge of the farm and local history. This complemented her knowledge of the wines, both those from the estate and others from the region excellently. If possible, ask for Chanel to guide you through your Steenberg experience!

I had an amazing experience here and I would like to pass a special thanks to the very professional, Akohna, Matteo and Elaine that served us. They were all knowledgable, friendly and attentive. The food was expertly prepared, everything had a phenomenal taste. I can honestly say that my afternoon was not just a fun meal with friends but an experience which everyone should try at least once in their life.

The perfect spot for a get together with friends, with plenty of space between tables, and the most spectacular outdoor seating area for those summer days.
The menu had great variety and all dietary requirements were handled with ease.
The staff are always so well presented, knowledgeable and friendly, every time I go there.
Definitely is my go to place in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town!

I visited Bistro 1682 for breakfast with friends to celebrate my birthday. Everything from the coffee to complimentary honey brioche was perfect. Service was great and I felt really special when the kitchen sent complimentary chocolate truffles to acknowledge my birthday celebration. Always a special place for a birthday or just a perfect meal.
