The background is amazing, in the heart of Costantia Groot, the oldest wine cellar and producer of South Africa. It seems to go back to 1800 and the food is nice. The waiters are very polite and the prices are ok. It was an amazing idea to spend the all morning there, if you go to Cape Town do not... More

The place is very nice and also the staff, but the food is not that great. The dishes are too small and there is a lack of taste in almost everything.

We had lunch here in a large group in December and were shocked by the difference in this restaurant compared to Simons restaurant on the same wine estate. The staff were untrained, incompetent, slovenly and unaware of what customer satisfaction should be about. The maitre de too the order and made a map of who wanted what and where they... More

Visited Jonkerhuis for our wedding anniversary meal. For the price the food was disappointing. The service was slow but that was not an issue as we were not in a hurry. The mains were cold so we had to send them back. The Groot Constantia Blanc De Noir was gorgeous but why charge R35 corkage for it when it is... More

The kids menu on the next table looked much better. Pork had to be refused and the panko chicken was pretty dire. Waste of time and disappointed

We decided last minute to walk to this restaurant after our wine tasting. We were greeted by friendly staff and the food that followed had the most amazing flavours. It was a great meal with wonderful views and surroundings.

We sat outside and had an amazing authentic South African lunch. I ordered the babotie which was really good! Great wine selection I particularly like the Groot Constantia Chardonnay. Very good service. Great place to bring foreign guests.

The staff is very friendly. We decided on the curry tasting platter. I do NOT eat hot food. But wow. This food was delicious. It was spicy and not hot. I could actually eat it. It was more than enough for two people. I would have love a bit more relaxed laid back atmosphere, which we felt while eating. But... More

I had visitors from Canada and wanted to give them a wine lands experience without having to travel far. In fact, Jonkershuis at Groot Constantia was about 6km from my home in Wynberg. The outside dining area was full so we went inside -- still a wonderful experience. The various breakfasts and scones were well presented an tasty. Our visitors... More

Description
Jonkershuis Constantia is nestled in the historic core of the Groot Constantia Wine Estate next to the historic Manor House and surrounded by ancient oak trees. Your first impression is dominated by sweeping views across the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, down the valley to the enveloping coastline of False Bay.

This family owned and managed bistro boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining, to typical Italian village gatherings in their vine covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, were children can safely play reminiscent of a bygone era..

Partner Chris Coetzee, a father of two energetic young sons says, "Our close proximity and strong association with Iziko Museums is very important to me, it is a privilege for my children to be raised surrounded by so much of their heritage."
The rich cultural history of Jonkershuis lends a magical and old world charm to any occasion held at the beautiful Jonkershuis.

Tammy Botbyl (partner), "The strong legacy of history and tradition has inspired many couples to share their vows here and celebrate their union in style. It is a privilege for us to be part of the beginning of so many new legacies."
