Restaurants at wine estates in Constantia Valley

Eating out in Cape Town’s oldest wine growing region

First cultivated by wine enthusiast Simon van der Stel in 1685, Constantia Valley lies to the east of and at the foot of the Constantiaberg Mountain. The farm has since been divided into smaller estates, each with a unique heritage. You’ll find equally unique restaurants on these estates, offering great food and wine in historic surroundings.

Groot Constantia Estate:

Jonkershuis Restaurant
Dine on classic South African dishes including real bobotie with yellow rice and sambals. An ideal setting for weddings and functions, the restaurant overlooks False Bay and there are spacious lawns for kids to play on.

Simon’s
A balance of indoor and outdoor sections; this contemporary restaurant offers a wide variety, from line fish to Karoo lamb.

Constantia Uitsig Estate:

Constantia Uitsig Restaurant
Head chef Clayton Bell has earned an international reputation for his Mediterranean Provençalcuisine. We thought Constantia Uitsig was one of the most tranquil restaurants to hang out in the whole of Cape Town.

River Café
River Café has long been a popular social haunt in the Constantia Valley. Revered for its sumptuous breakfasts, River Café offers an assortment of freshly baked pastries, cakes and muffins complimented by a café style menu. Using the freshest local ingredients and wines sourced from the Constantia Valley, River Café provides the perfect setting for leisurely breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas.

La Colombe
Linger at this Provence-inspired restaurant for a long and indulgent tasting menu prepared by chef, Scot Kirton. Our La Colombe highlight was Alaskan king crab, with truffle mousse, soft-boiled quail eggs and horseradish foam.
