Located in the oldest wine producing vineyards in South Africa, Jonkershuis is a shining example to a restaurant that constantly holds its reputation in one of the most visited wine estates in the Cape.

Frequently visited by locals and repeatedly fully booked on special calendric days, stands for the quality and value this eatery serves.

Surrounded by ancient oak trees and overlooking the Cape Flats and False Bay, the restaurant is actually a complex of spaces and seating possibilities that allows it to operate all year round, 7 days a week. Including private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining; typical Italian village gatherings in the covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, where children can safely play amongst the old oak trees and two seaters along the white facade to sit back and watch the play of humans and nature in front of you.

The daily breakfast menu is rich and versatile. You’ll find light or full options and a special healthy attention to children of all ages. The later menu pays homage to the rich cultural history of the estate through authentic Cape Malay inspired bistro style food.

The tradition of showcasing the best produce the Cape has to offer continues through simple and accessible food, pointing to the fact that Cape Malay dishes are renowned for their fruity, mild & full-bodied flavours. It’s all about local spices & flavours, not about chilli.

Should you only be in the mood to nibble while enjoying a bottle of wine, Jonkershuis offers patrons a Bakery Bread board, a Charcuterie or a Fromage board, all supporting organic, free-range & sustainable practices.

The venue is able to accommodate up to 250 guest for a function and offers packages for different budgets. They will be dilated to host your special occasion and embed you to the historical fabric that creates the Groot Constantia legacy.

The 333 years old Groot Constantia Wine Estate is accessible via the City Sightseeing Mini Peninsula Tour if you don’t have your own set of wheels.
