The Restaurant is situated in the original thatch covered and white washed Cape Dutch building and forms part of the historic wherf of Buitenverwachting.

The mountain facing terrace allows for iconic views over the vineyards onto the picturesque Constantiaberg, forming part of the UNESCO - World Heritage Site (Table Mountain range).

The courtyard with established stinkwood trees and traditional Cape fountain is integrated with the Wine Tasting Centre - Coffee Bloc and is geared for informal and relaxed lunches / dinners.

The menu is divided into four categories, Light & Easy, Rustic Affairs, Indulge and Desserts, catering for relaxed and deli style lunches / dinners, but also offering a limited selection of fine dining dishes.


The cuisine is fine dining with a sophisticated, contemporary feel.

Edgar’s Austrian roots are evident in a dining experience, which is a delight for the taste buds of the connoisseur.

A la carte and set menus are available daily for lunch and dinner Edgar’s sense of artistry are portrayed to perfection adding the mouth-watering experience for the pampered palate. Menus are frequently changed offering sophisticated fare, using only the finest produce sourced locally and internationally.

Relax and savour Edgar’s ambrosial dishes …

Brian Berkman’s Top 10 Cape Town Restaurants -

“Buitenverwachting’s historic wine farm setting is about the only thing traditional here. Chef Edgar’s favourites are items like springbok with Christine (the estate’s flagship wine) jus and other crowd pleasers while other items hint at deconstructed or molecular gastronomy associated with The Fat Duck and El Bulli.”

Buitenverwachting restaurant is currently closed for the winter break.
We will be re-opening on the 19th August 2014.
