The Kraal in Stellenbosch: Laidback Lunch Under The Trees

The Kraal in Stellenbosch: Laidback Lunch Under The Trees

Take a trip to the Winelands, where a family feast under the trees awaits every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The historic Joostenberg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is home to The Kraal – a beautiful country-style restaurant that oozes charm and history.

Kraal at Joostenberg Stellenbosch

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

Kraal Restaurant Joostenberg

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!

The Kraal Menu

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!
