Visited yesterday for a wine tasting and was very pleasantly surprised with the tasting experience and can say that the service was outstanding thanks to Rupert, our server. We will definately return to this one on our next visit to Constantia. Their wines are excellent.

The staff must be the best we have come across, the food is amazing. We spent a leisurely afternoon having lunch then finished the wine in the garden under a massive tree, idyllic. Also has a coffee shop with a good selection of treats.

Not open in the winter months. I also believe the owner of Buitenverwachting has closed the picnic's forever which is a pity.
