I attended a group dinner with colleagues from around the world and we all enjoyed both the great wine and amazing food. A great dining experience and compared to many countries very well priced.

Excellent food served in an amazing setting. The restaurant is part of an old farm/estate with gorgeous views towards Cape Town. You are surrounded by the vineyard and breathtaking views. You can watch the staff prepare your food as you sample the excellent wine produced on site. The presentation of each dish is always a work of art. Almost to... More

My husband had been a few times previously with business colleagues and had loved all his meals. So we went as a family of 5 with high expectations. The restaurant, the setting, the service, the presentation of the food and the wine were all outstanding. Not one of us could say our main dish was amazing. My yellowtail with a... More

One of the most beautiful views of Table Mountain. The surroundings are also beautiful. The way that the dishes are served deserve 11/10. The complimentary bread was delicious. The starter was excellent but the main (fillette) was average. I have never ordered a medium-well done and then it was so overcooked. The flies that were at the table and that... More

I chose this restaurant for its wines and the view - amazing view of Table Mountain in the distance. The lunch menu is not extensive (about five items available for each course) but the food is absolutely wonderful - this restaurant has now taken first place in my top five restaurants ever visited. I had the kingklip and my husband... More

We arrived at this beautiful estate and were greeted by 2 friendly security guards who checked our licences and directed us to the restaurant. The restaurant itself is right at the top of the estate with great views of the mountain and farm itself.

We were taken to De Grendel by friends in Cape Town and were totally taken with the beautiful view from the veranda's, the superb tasting during which we were guided so effortlessly by the staff, then onto the lunch in the restaurant. The Kudu appetizer was mouth watering. Highly recommended for both wine tasting and dining.
