Take a Sunday trip to the winelands for a family-festive feast under the trees.

Located on the historic Joostenberg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, this beautiful country-style restaurant oozes in charm and history.

Situated in a stone-walled courtyard, which was once the farm’s original cattle kraal, the restaurant’s rustic chairs and tables – dotted among wild olive groves and fruit trees – is the perfect spot to enjoy deliciously wholesome, farm-fresh food with friends or family.

Farm-to-table delights

The Kraal at Joostenberg

Sunday lunch consists of a set three-course menu prepared by chef Lanri Marais using locally sourced, organic produce – some of which come from the farm itself! And although the menu changes weekly, diners can expect a seasonally driven menu of wholesome delights:

  • freshly baked breads
  • starters: a selection of sharing plates, such as warm asparagus with vinaigrette, summer vegetable crudité, and seafood croquettes
  • main course: braised wagyu beef shin with salsa verde and a selection of vegetable sides
  • dessert: strawberry salad infused with mint and lemon, sorbet, tuile, and date balls

If you’re looking for a fuss-free, festive Sunday lunch with delicious estate vino, you’ve come to the right Kraal.

Good to know Children are welcome, but there is not a separate children’s menu. Booking is essential.
