Yes we did the full dining experience that was one of a kind. I stopped counting how many different kind of dishes the waiters served us with the set menu. The wine we ordered was obviously pricy but fit the bill literary and figuratively. We...More

The ambience and location of the Overture restaurant at the Hidden Valley Winery are splendid. A contemporary restaurant (thank heavens) with good food, wine and service. They are expanding and some building work close to the restaurant threatened to (but did not) compromise our experience....More

In November 2007 Overture Restaurant, situated on Hidden Valley Wines - a wine farm anchored into the side of the Stellenbosch hills - opened its doors for the very first time. Starting from humble beginnings, Overture soon became a destination for great food, service and wines. Since then, Chef Owners Bertus Basson and Craig Cormack have taken Overture to new heights with accolades as prestigious as being in the Eat Out top 10 for five years in a row and acquiring three stars in the Rossouw's Restaurant guide for four years running.You will find Bertus behind the pots at Overture while Craig focuses on his salt range, Amouleh.
