Tuesdays just got tastier…
For many Capetonians eating out is a well-earned treat. But, doing it too often can get a tad pricey. Which is why these Tuesday specials are a welcome addition to the week.
The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Under 30s Special Offer
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 offers a concise French-inspired menu and award-winning Glenelly estate wines. 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! The concept, French in origin, was launched as a way of generating a passion for quality food and wine among the youth (by making it more affordable, accessible and fun). 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.

Tryn at Steenberg: Tuesday Night Special
Michael Broadbent, the venerable British wine critic and writer, hit the nail on the head when he said: “Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life’s most civilised pleasures.” We couldn’t agree more, particularly if you happen to be doing so at Tryn on Steenberg Wine Farm.
Tuesdays at Tryn have taken on a new meaning since the introduction of their superb special. Helmed by chef Kerry Kilpin, the Tryn team has devised a seasonal menu that’s diverse and delicious. Kerry, known for pairing flavourful sauces with her favourite cuts of meat and fish, is also a champion of beautifully prepared vegetables, which shine through on the lighter, plant-based menu options.
The restaurant is dressed in a palette of natural wood, with velvet-covered chairs in mustard, forest-green and dirty pink creating a sophisticated and soothing atmosphere. And, of course, the sense of being immersed in the vineyards outside is always a rare and special treat.
The new Tuesday menu
There are three choices for each of the two courses: for starters the options are oysters; cauliflower, parsnip and truffle soup; or salt-and-pepper calamari.
For mains, diners can choose between mushroom tagliatelle (with broccoli and baby spinach and artichoke-and-truffle cream), fish (always ethically sourced) with prawn bisque; and pork belly (pak choi, root vegetables, green apple and red cabbage salsa) – all of which go deliciously with a chilled glass of Steenberg Brut Rosé or the estate’s award-winning, Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2020, a perennial favourite.
The Date Night offering is succinct and doesn’t include a dessert – instead our waiter brought two handmade chocolate fondants emblazoned with the estate’s elegant swan motif to close off our dinner a deux.
Tryn’s Tuesday special is a delicious, well-curated – and well-priced – opportunity to connect with one or more friends. Bravo Tryn – making going out great again!
