My girlfriend and I decided to do something special this year for Valentine's and so we booked at Cuvee for their Valentine's Dinner. Right from the making of the reservation through to paying the bill the service we received was excellent! We tried almost all of the options from the 3 course set meal options and there was not one... More

We were pleasantly surprised. We had a Saturday lunch with the family. Menu has pasta to red meat. Wine list is comprehensive and the staff is pleasant. Take a bottle of bubbles and go sit under the trees after your meal

On the Vine Hopper wine tour recommended by the driver (was he getting a backhander??) that this was the best place to have lunch so was looking forward to arriving. Didn't want much and didn't find the menu particularly inviting so chose the aubergine tart. When it came it was a slice of puff pastry heaped with salad, nuts and... More

I was delighted to discover their new Bistro Menu and that they no longer do Fine Dining at lunchtime! I had the salad with deepfried tofu which was simply one of the most delicious and different salads I have ever had. My friends had some of the other salads - all delicious! Well done Cuvee!! You are now my new... More

Cuvee's Summer menu is lovely and refreshing...I just love it. The presentation is stylish, the service good....so do not miss out on this lovely restaurant under the oaks. Nothing better than a view, great food and great wine.... certainly one of my most favourite restaurants in Stellenbosch. Well done to Dirk and his team!!!

I was pleasantly surprised when my family and I paid a visit to this restaurant. First of all, the menu is ons of the most beautiful that I've seen in a while. It entices the customer. Their food is simple, straight forward and well executed with a South African flair. We enjoyed some boerewoers starters and signature cocktails. The restaurant... More

You start with this beautifully photographed menu which definitely gets the taste buds watering. There aren't too many dishes on the menu but the ones that are there all sound very interesting and new to the European palate. We had a selection of starters to share, salads and boerewors, all delicious. Moving onto their mains most of us opted for... More

This had to be one of my most favorite restaurants in the world and longed to return. My husband and I made a reservation quite easily which perhaps was the first sign. We arrived for what they call their vintage Friday's dinner. The menu is a fixed menu giving one a choice of two starters, two mains and two desserts.... More

Stunning gardens, excellent wine, wonderful staff and one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. Excellent menu with light salads through to heavier dishes. My smoked chicken salad was perfectly balanced with the fried capers on top. Absolutely worth the visit if you are in the area.
