Stellenbosch is jam-packed with trendy and vibey restaurants. This welcome competition keeps all the chefs on their feet and the results are some awesome hang out spots and even better dishes.
De Stomme Jonge
I`m not sure how safe it is to “out” this place as lots of locals refer to it as a “hidden gem” but I`ll take my chances. De Stomme Jonge is the perfect place for friends to get together around a delicious platter with a couple of mouth-watering beers. Pro tip: The “roosterkoek” comes highly recommended.
Asta La Pasta
This stunningly intimate restaurant is the place you want to go for the perfect pasta. Flavoured wonderfully and with generous portions this is your ultimate date-night restaurant. Added bonus: the location is awesome!
Oppie Dorp offers a decadently interesting dining experience. The menu is full of inventive new dishes as well as the old classics. The wine list is extensive and the service is impeccable. If it`s a nice day out sit outside and enjoy the shade of the beautiful trees!
This trendy restaurant is definitely one of my favourites. From décor to atmosphere to flavours this place covers it all. It has a stunning upstairs gin bar that serve new and interesting cocktails and they often play live music which makes the switch from restaurant to bar quick and easy.
Stellenbosch is beautifully scenic with the combination of a very trendy vibe. It`s like a shrunken up version of Cape Town with the advantage of you being able to handle it in one weekend. Definitely make the trip you will not be sorry!
