We appreciate this restaurant a lot, and invited friends. We took springbok (venison) and pork, with a few side dishes. Excellent as usual! What more can I say? Will be back!

We were 4 couples who had a fantastic time at this restaurant, celebrating our friends' 20th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious- difficult to choose from the interesting items on the menu. Our waiter Xolami was professional, had a great sense of humor and he took excellent care of us.

Definitely a good steak house with quite an impressive wine list. Stay strictly on meat though, don't even go for burgers...

I had been twice in the restaurant for the last 2 weeks. The food is fantastic. I had the Venison loin (Springbok) with roasted baby carrots, parsnip puree, kale & jus. My husband had the Hollandse pepper fillet. For desert we had the 96 Winery road desert platter. Everything was delicious. The service was great too. Definately recommend this place

We revisited Winery 96 after a while and introduced visiting friends to it. The menu is slightly different but everything is as good as it always has been.

This Restaurant is situated just off a busy road and has an awesome view of the hills and fields. Lovely to sit out in the sun in the beautiful garden or within the cosy walls of the actual restaurant. Stunning food, tasty appetisers, excellent service and mid-range pricing.
