Where to Eat in Western Cape, South Africa

South Africa is rich with culture, history, beauty, and of course, food. From tender lamb dishes to rustic and hearty plates of fish or pork belly; these can all be found from places as cosmopolitan as Cape Town to wine farm restaurants in the beautiful Stellenbosch.

The crème de la crème

The Lanzerac Wine Estate is known for many things. It is one of the oldest heritage farms in South Africa; it is the first to create and bottle the Pinotage; and it continues to receive recognition for award-winning wines.

It’s to be expected then that Lanzerac Wine Estate’s hotel and four dining outlets are equally as inimitable and luxurious. But the TRAVELIFE Magazine team realized that it actually exceeds expectations.

Each dining outlet has something to offer. Go to Lanzerac Deli for breads and pastries; take a gastronomic adventure for dinner at Manor Kitchen for classical dishes with a twist; enjoy homegrown food from locally sourced produce at the gourmet pub-style Taphuis; or relax in Craven Lounge and try one of the many local or international spirits on offer.
