The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Under 30s Special Offer

The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Under 30s Special Offer

Housed within a state-of-art building at Glenelly Estate, this Christophe Dehosse-owned gem is headed by chef Damien George, whose concise French-inspired menu changes regularly. If the sun is out, sit under the pergola at one of the long tables on the deck and enjoy beautiful views of the vineyards and surrounding hills. On chilly days, gather in the elegant restaurant dining room. If you are between 18 and 29, and partial to gourmet fare accompanied by award-winning wine, breathtaking views, and warm Winelands hospitality, this one’s for you. Les Jeunes a Table (directly translating to “the youth at table”) has arrived in Stellenbosch! Originated in France to generate a passion for quality food and wine among the youth by making it more affordable, accessible and fun, this rendition is not to be missed! Under 30s will be treated to three delectable courses served with tasting portions of wine, including water and coffee, for R290 per person (normally priced at R420). Waiters will make a special effort to explain the dishes in detail and hopefully spark a lifelong passion.

    I agree. Total discrimination. I hope that the restaurant itself is open to all ages?

    Never have I felt discrimination
    But I do here !
    What a pity I’m too old and obviously unwanted for your restaurant
    A sad outdated policy indeed

      HI Yvette
      The special is intended to ignite young people’s interest in food and wine, rather than to discriminate against people older than 30. Glenelly does offer other wonderful specials, so do look out for those.

        Hi Maxine

        The restaurant is indeed open to everybody. As I explained to Yvette the Under 30s special is designed to ignite a passion among young adults for food and wine.
