La Pineta, beautifully situated between huge pinetrees in the Cape Winelands, 10 mis outside of student town Stellenbosch, is an absolute must-visit ! Apart from it's beautiful location and really impressive menu and quality of food, it is also very childfriendly with a lovely outside eating area and playground for the little ones. The inside dining area is stylish and... More

My family often have Sunday Lunch at La Pineta as we find the standard of service, food and affordability is excellent. It is a real family restaurant with a cozy, homily feel, roaring fires in winter and sunny terrace in summer. The oxtail is to die for and the Lamb shank not far behind.

Lamb shank and pork belly was simply delicious. Lamb fell off the bone and the crackling crackled on the pork! Chocolate torte was rich and decadent. If you want the Restaurant to yourself go on a friday at lunch time. Service was very good. Pinotage by the glass superb.

lunched at this eatery on a blustery Saturday afternoon. front of house was welcoming,but that is where the warm hospitality ends. went on a groupon voucher so maybe that was the reason for the waitors 'here to do a job' attitude. Food was tasty, rump steak was one of the best I've eaten. However, the whole experience was somewhat sterile... More

No where else will you find steak of this quality. Apparently dry aged by the owner himself, you are treated to steak that tastes like butter. For my personal favorite select the pepper fillet. Hand finished in a pan of flames at the table. I could eat them non stop.

One of the best restaurants in the area. Beautiful surroundings, place for kids to play outside. Not cheap but if the food is good it is worth it.

A very pleasant lunch venue - there is a lot of natural light and they have very comfortable chairs! I had the calamari for starters which was really perfectly cooked but had none of the promised chilli syrup or coriander which was disappointing. My fillet Béarnaise was delicious - perfectly cooked as ordered and properly rested, it was fantastic. The... More
