The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Friday Evening Dinners Delivered

This French bistro just outside Stellenbosch majors in Gallic flavour, passion and heartfelt authenticity, and is now delivering delectable dinners from their kitchen to yours.

Not so long ago (though it feels like a lifetime), Fridays meant throwing on the gladrags, hailing an uber and heading out for dinner at one of our favourite restaurants. So, even though Level 4 Lockdown put the kibosh on that, it doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy our favourite cuisines.

This Friday night we’re going French, because the expert chefs at The Vine Bistro at Glenelly – a dining destination just outside Stellenbosch – are preparing an array of heavenly dishes to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
