A must stop en-route to Paarl. Gorgeous selection of cheeses well complimented by the Goats Do Roam Rosé. If you love cheese, make a turn!

You must try the great variety Goats-cheese as Fairview it is sublime and out of this world. At the Goatshed there also is bread and other tings but it is the cheese that attract me

We had late lunch at the Goat Shed and the food was amazing. All of us had wonderful food and the beef pie with mash and vegies was stunning. Service was efficient and friendly. Pricing was very fair for the quality of food and the size of the portions we had. This is definitely a place that I will go... More

Always the most divine place to visit when in the STellenbosch area. Cheeses are divine. Wines of the best. Lunch and service excellent. Really a place to visit if you want to relax and just enjoy the food, the wine , the cheeses and the scenery .. all in one place.. lovely!

We ordered a selection of cheeses along with croissants. The coffee was superb, the flaky croissants were warm and the modest cheese portions hit the spot. Service was efficient and friendly. The decor enhanced the relaxed atmosphere, the silly billy fountain and lush surrounds made for a most enjoyable experience. Recommended for 'relaxed fare'.

I've had lunc at the Goatsheed with european friends. We had a table on the terasse and had a relax lunch with a good glass of wine. Then we had a wine and cheese pairing tasting, very good and affordable. I strongly recommend to visit Fairview.

Was one of the worst tasteless bland meals I have ever had. It's not what I would expect from the Goatshed. Had eaten there long time ago. To cut it short I would NOT RECOMMEND it at all. I don't like eating vegetables that are boiled from a bag. The salad was like let's throw all the left overs in... More

We were treated to the new goat company and their upgraded facilities. The lunch was the main affair getting the special from the previous day. Kids have separate menu that suited our pocket. Loved it so much decided to have my 40th there!

This restaurant doesnt really need any more reviews ... just about everything has been said.... We go often especially when we have guests - both local and overseas... Irrespective of how full, the same prompt service is always first class. Shannon, the manager, is a most professional yet friendly person, and the staff are clearly selected for their friendly courtesy... More
