Food was really very average. 5 out of 5 for presentation and service but unfortunately only 2 out of 5 for flavor. Not one of the dishes stood out. Very disappointed. I would not recommend it.

Stunning vineyard and winery in Stellenbosch with beautiful views and a fabulous restaurant. Perfect place for a long lunch! Don't miss the tour through the cellar. Thanks for having us, it was one of the highlights of our trip to SA.

The food was wonderful and the wine... More

The wine tasting section offers a lunch with salmon or sirloin only - prepared to perfection including a glass (large) of wine. Love our visits - always.

What a fabulous place, where can i begin. I celebrated my 50th birthday a few weeks ago there sitting at table number 5 and enjoyed the most fantastic 6 course meal served by a great team of staff. Thankyou to all of you for making my evening one to remember.

Combine a wine tasting at this flagship wine estate with a quick and lovely lunch. Only Salmon or Sirloin steak on offer my friend and I shared both and it was deliciously prepared. The fresh asparagus complimented the seared salmon beautifully. The sirloin arrived cooked perfectly medium rare as we requested and was soft and yummy. The wines are extra... More

This is our third time at Ruste-en-vrede restaurant and I'm sure we'll go back. We went for the tasting menu with matching wines. However we didn't feel the menu worked as well as usual and although they handled a complaint that we had about one of the dishes extremely well, we didn't feel it was as good as we have... More
