We were recommended to come to Flavours for a memorable dinner. It was memorable for all the wrong reasons. I must say the restaurant is in a wonderful setting, the dining room has a terrific ambience, the staff are attentive and friendly, the wine list comprehensive. Alas the food did not match up to expectations. My companion had stuffed chicken...the... More

Every year, for the last 9 years, when our Swallow Friends come back from UK we go to the Flavours Restaurant at the Devon Valley Hotel for our first and last meal of their trip. But I think we are done and will be looking for a new venue. The price has risen, but you expect that, and over the... More

This has to be one of the worst lunches I've ever had. We had the braai buffet and the meat was dry and over cooked. It was also completely tasteless. The salads were ok'ish, but nothing worth mentioning. Desert was also very mediocre. Service was slow - all the waiters had to do was take the drinks orders and that... More

The staff are amazing! They are well trained and you can see their purpose is to serve you! We arrived later afternoon but on Sunday's they have buffet form 12:00-15:00 it looked like a wide spread from starters to desserts, but it was too late for us to have. Needless to say the friendly staff offered us a wine tasting,... More

Fish was overcooked and dry but Sirloin steak was excellent. Service could be better. Different waiters came to our table so we had to repeat order etc. Better training could be the solution.

Flavours at Devon Valley Hotel is since many years a landmark and belongs to the old fashioned group of hotels and restaurants around Stellenbosch. At our recent visit for an early dinner on the terrace with the wonderful view we were shocked however because there was no service at all! There were only a few guests at this time but... More

Dear Peter R, It is with great concern that I read your review. Firstly, I apologise profusely for the lack of service you have received upon your last visit to Devon Valley Hotel. From what I can gather you are familiar with our establishment, and very possibly aware that what you have experienced, is by no means our usual standard... More

We called to ask if we needed to book or if we could just rock up as we were already in the area, and received a friendly invitation to come around, no booking required at that time; we visited early afternoon, midweek, so it was quiet and relaxed. Our waiter knew the menu well, was attentive without hovering and we... More

A very scenic setting the weather was perfect so we sat outside, it was pretty quiet, but I imagine in season it could be very busy so booking is advised. The service is immaculate, the menu is small but adequate with an extensive wine list, and the food is very good and well presented. If you have not been them... More
