The historic Joostenberg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is home to The Kraal – a beautiful country-style restaurant that oozes 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.
Lunch is served every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and consists of a set three-course menu prepared by chef Lanri Marais using locally sourced, organic produce – some of which comes 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, fabulous lunch with delicious estate wine, you’ve come to the right Kraal!
