The restaurant's decor was beautiful overlooking stunning produce gardens. The food was 5 star divine. The friendly staff provided flawless service. An absolute must.

Lunch for three with beautiful scenery and mouthwatering food. The lamb was a taste sensation! The setting, the service, the food...it was just perfect and made for a most memorable time.

My wife and I did wine tasting followed by lunch at the Werf restaurant in the estate. The wine tasting was spoiled a bit by the attitude of our server who failed to engage with us and attempt a smile. I asked for a clean glass after one tasting but it never appeared and our server careened in and slopped... More

I ordered a burger at their deli and bit not only into a huge twig (see photo uploaded) but also bone in the patty. The manager was condescending and completely unapologetic. If Boschendal pays so little attention to what goes into their food, one should ask what else is in their food that is perhaps not visible and also what... More

Such a treat to walk around the beautiful gardens of Boschendal and then have their fine Pinot Noir wine and a delicious cold meat and cheese platter in the garden under old oak trees.

Lunch today at the Boschendal Deli was a delight. Beautiful mild weather, seated in the dappled shade under the trees, and friendly service made for a very enjoyable and restive experience. The resident cockerel and hens ambling around the tables added to the delightful experience. We opted for pies and salads for lunch. One bobotie pie - very unusual to... More

We booked the picnic basket for 6 of us. The concept is great and good location but the food was a big disappointment . Easily could be 10 times better with top excellent food even for picnic. Could be with a great potential to be WOW.. Need to look on this food option.

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at The Werf Restaurant. The service was friendly and professional. BUT The Menu was interesting but did not excite. It is neither fine dining (which we really don't need more of in the Winelands; we are so tired of dots, splashes and minute portions) or Bistro (yes, please we need more of this style!)... More

This relatively new venue at Boschendal is situated in an old Cape Dutch house on the premises. The setting is beautiful with green lawns and large shady trees But inside the house it is very dark and a bit gloomy. We saw the inside with its dark wood furniture and the various rooms one could be seated in and immediately... More

We have been there for lunch on a Sunday. It is a lovely location and the service in the restaurant is good and friendly. The quality of food is good but the portions are small and much too expensive for that. RIdiculous is the price for wine. The waiter offered us a wines for R 400 to R 600 and... More
