The special R290 for a wine-paired three-course meal, including water and coffee.
About The Vine Bistro Housed within a state-of-art building at Glenelly Estate, this Christophe Dehosse-owned gem is headed by chef Alex Rykaart, 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.
The deal 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.
