We stayed at the winery and the hotel is fantastic with the best views ever from the bistro and the food and wine was excellent. They have wood oven which makes all the food taste even more delicious. The best pizza ever and the charcolrd veggies even better

Stopped off at Asara - it is conveniently near a main road at the edge of the town - for Sunday lunch. The location of the restaurant and its view is superb. Both the food and the wine was very good. Service was very friendly.

Stopped by during our stay in Stellenbosch. Would have dropped the Tapas part of the name and left just the Bistro portion. Fairly extensive menu with lots of choices. There were 4 of us in the party and all of us agreed the food was very good...not outstanding, just very good. Maybe South Africans have a different definition of what... More

We popped in for a late afternoon lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The pizzas were so tasty - thin and delicious. Would recommend the Parma ham and gorgonzola- delicious! Great views from comfy chairs on the deck and nice background music from the pianist.

We visited to buy wine but stayed for lunch. Incredible menu. We loved the view. Although it was a little windy on the day, it was still very pleasant outside on the terrace.

Came for lunch. Excellent food and wine. Great service. Chicken was perfectly done and desserts were to die for. Never had a banana pizza dessert before - can highly recommend it.

It was my 19th Wedding Anniversary and I was hoping to spoil my wife with a stunnig dinner at a special place. Well besides the fact that my reservation was not taken when I arrived ( I called on Tuesday last week to book) they said it would not be an issue – clearly as there were only 2 tables... More
