We recently visited Wijnhuis in Stellenbosch for a family Sunday lunch. It was a great experience and we all enjoyed the food, drinks, atmosphere and service tremendously.
We were seated upstairs with a cosy fireplace creating a homey atmosphere and looking out onto the courtyard since it was a rainy day.
We were served with friendly eagerness which added to the fabulous experience. The wine list has a wide variety to choose from, as well as quantities to choose from (of course I chose a carafe and my mom only a glass).
Dying with hunger, we were quite happy to see our generous portions when the food arrived after a very short wait. The menu offers something for everyone, from casual tasteful burgers to fancy steaks and wild game. I ordered the chicken schnitzel with mushroom pasta, a combination I have never seen anywhere, but orchestrated a tasty combination.
I usually say no for desert, but my eye caught the Cheese cake on the menu and I decided to just go for it. It was delicious, and disappeared off my plate within seconds (it was gone so quick I couldn’t even take a photo of it).
The ice cream with chocolate sauce is divine, and why wouldn’t it be if the chocolate sauce is home made.
We will most definitely recommend Wijnhuis to anyone. We had a lovely time and really appreciate the tasty food and friendly service. Now one of my favourites in Stellenbosch.
