We were there for breakfast last Thursday. Its a very pretty spot. Absolutely charming with the historical significance of the building. That said, the interior as well as the exterior of the building sadly didn't make up for the dead average breakfast. The staff were friendly upon arrival and we ended up sitting outside. We ordered cappuccinos and our breakfast.... More

We were walking through Stellenbosch hoping to find a restaurant that looked inviting with a good menu. The Big Easy drew us in with its quirky layout and indoor/outdoor dining rooms. The menu, including specials, offered around a dozen main course options and we were spoiled for choice but both ended up opting for fillet steaks. Tender, delicious and seasoned... More

we had a fantastic diner. Especially the game for me does the trick. It was a super busy evening, but the food was served in a decent time and the quality as good as we expected it to be. Do make a reservation as it is a very popular place.

You walk in to a restaurant that feels intimate & personal. The food lives up to its reputation, I had the Kinglip but particularly enjoyed my partner's burger, the taste of which still haunts me... Service is also brilliant as is the wine list.

We have been here before but we're now told by many local people that the quality of food has deteriorated and I think that is fair to say. However it is still a lovely place, nice service, nice setting and decent food. Not too expensive but they have done much better.

Since our last visit a couple of years were gone, so we wanted to see if the quality is still great. Our meat dishes were done to perfection (as ordered), the waiters were alert and friendly. So we enjoyed a very nice evening at this restaurant. We definitely will return. Make sure, that you have made a reservation. Sometimes there... More

We went for lunch on the second to last day of our holiday and wished we'd gone sooner. The prawn and chicken curry, whilst not something I would have put together, worked a treat!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

The food was outstanding, the fillet was super soft and juicy. The atmosphere was classy and old worldly, a bit dark and serious for my taste, but the food and wine was good.

We went for lunch and really enjoyed it. Adkins was our waiter and was a total professional. Interestingly the wines were so well priced and excellent as well. Beautiful environment.

Thank didot
