Please visit Rust en Vrede if you are looking for outstanding food, wonderful views, great service and an exceptional setting! We had lunch (choice of two options only, steak or salmon) outside under the massive oak trees which was a treat in itself. My husband had the meat option and I had the fish. It was beyond delicious and although... More

Classic, historic dining room reminds one of a wine cellar. Lovely patio with views of the valley and mountains, perfect place on which to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. Superb six course tasting menu at the Rust en Vrede winery. Excellent service though-out the meal consisting of a first course of yellow-fin tuna tartar, followed by a perfectly prepared pan seared... More

Lunch at Rust en Vrede is truly an experience worth having. There are only 2 options, steak or salmon, but they are done exceptionally well. The steak was prepared exactly to specification and the chips were delicious. The setting is gorgeous and I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful wine farm lunch.

My husband and I eat there at least twice a month on Saturdays or Sundays for lunch where guests have a choice between Angus steak and chips and salad or Salmon and chips/salad. Beautiful setting between acorn trees, Hydrangias and roses and excellent waiters. The food and the Donkiesbaai wine is exceptionally good.

We had lunch here last week and it was nice but I had expected better. We had the steak and the salmon. The portions were quite big, but for that price they should be. The salmon was good but the potato and asparagus serving was quite small. The quality of the steak was good, but unfortunately mine was pretty well... More
