Beautiful spot with absolutely stunning views on any of the terraces. Peaceful with great service, staff & delicious wines & food. Great family place, safe for children/toddlers & good shade on hot days. Very laid back & a lovely escape from the centre of the City. A great recommendation from local friends. We will definitely make it an annual pilgrimage... More

Constantia Glen is ideally located below Constantia Nek, just a short drive from the bustling Cape Town city centre. It is a boutique wine estate producing premium wines. The location is in the Constantia Valley , the oldest wine producing region in South Africa.

Constantia Glen is the most beautiful spot in the Cape! The views are just amazing! We come back again and again. The children have lots of fun running around in the lawn and they love the warm baked bread with cheese and jam. Our favourite South African red wines is from this farm.

Once through Security, a narrow brick-paved road led up through paddocks and vineyards, past more grand entrances, up still higher until we finally came to an old house surrounded by sun... More

Book ahead and ask for one of the tables on the terrace which will give you the best views. Great wines and sharing platters. We had one cheese and one with charcuterie. Good service and great wines.

We hadn't booked so didn't get the best spot but enjoyed the sunshine and the wine. We did the Classic tasting - 5 wines for R55. All felt a bit rushed on the part... More
