We arrived as it opened and had a great view from our terrace table. The breakfast choice was great and the staff were very attentive and pleasant. The omelette was delicious and the overall experience a perfect start to a day touring the nearby vineyards.

we had lunch lately at Hillcrest Berry farm. Very disappointing compared to previous experiences, both on choice on the menu and the quality. No wonder the place was almost empty (and this on Saturday. Staff was friendly and ok,

We have been here a few times and always enjoy sitting outside for the view. The food was enjoyable and the service good. The products are a bit expensive. All in all we had a lovely day.

I've heard so much of Hillcrest Berry Orchard so I was really excited to go. We visited on a Wednesday morning, we were the only people there at around 9:30 - only later were there more visitors, mostly tourists. It was a really hot day so we decided to sit outside, also the interior inside wasn't really inviting - little... More

One would expect an orchard, or at least a place where you can view or pick berries, no such thing, only a restaurant with an amazing view that serves ordinary food. They do not even serve berries other than the ready made berry compote to be spread on toast or something similar. was disappointed in the food but the view... More

We had been told by family that we should try the place so we included a stop here as part of a day trip into Stellenbosch, . So breakfast it was. What a beautiful patio to enjoy the first meal of the day. The mountain views create a wonderful setting. The service and the food was very good. An important... More

Like another reviewer we have been coming to Hillcrest for many years. It had lovely views & in the past we have brought lots of friends here. Unfortunately now there is something missing - attention to detail & realising what works! However the waiter was charming & the trio of ice creams excellent - no sorbets! Normally the place is...

This place has an amazing location!!! The view are just crazy!.. I don't think it makes up for the average everything else though. Firstly, don't go there if you're in a rush because food takes forever!The coffee was average, wouldn't order coffee there again. We had the farmers breakfast and the eggs Benedict, bacon was pretty much only fat, and... More

A well hidden GEM where one can feed your soul. Beautiful setting, quiet, friendly and attentive staff and excellent food. Their Devonshire scones is an absolute must to have, Sit on the veranda and over look the valley and dream on...
