A very nice place, though besides the main road from Stellenbosch to Somerset West unfortunately a little hard to find, with excellent food and a South-African-typical warm and friendly service.

What a lovely place.....we had an excellent meal of prawn curry and lamb shank. Friendly, attentive service. Lovely play area for the kids which you can see from the deck. Definitely on my list of favourite restaurants.

We have now visited South Africa for seven years on the run and learned of La Pineta, initially from British Airways crew who were regular visitors. It has been a very firm favourite of ours and it has never, ever, disappointed. We arrived this week for a lengthy stay and of course, immediately booked for dinner. La Pineta is our... More

La Pineta looks out over the Winelands to Table Mountain in the far distance. It offers a shaded outdoor dining area with a children's play area in full view - ideal for parents wanting to relax while keeping an eye on the kids. The service was pleasant but could have been a little more efficient (our table was lacking in... More

We had a light lunch comprising chicken livers, a pear brie & walnut salad and a garden salad. Food presentation was excellent and all was fresh and very tasty - so the kitchen is doing a fine job. The service could be improved though, as condiments had been forgotten and ordering was slightly sluggish. However, staff were very friendly. Starched... More

I chose La Pineta after booking on Groupon. We took my parents, however we did not have a lot of time between activities (our own fault). The food was good, lacked seasoning on some dishes but over all a great experience. Our waiter made sure the food was brought in a timely manner- due to our time constraints. I would... More
