Critic's review

This relaxed wine estate offers casual dining in a stylish environment and refers to itself as a "fun dining" restaurant.

Food
Kick off a weekend afternoon with the likes of fresh West Coast mussels in a white wine, coconut cream and chilli sauce with bread, or opt for Asian-style grilled tuna with ginger and chilli, served with a saffron aioli. For the less adventurous, a soup of the day or a grilled beef salad with Peppadews, cherry tomatoes and feta will hit the spot. Mains run the gamut from chermoula-marinated lamb shank with mashed potato, to chicken and seafood curries, pasta with prawns and white wine with chilli, garlic, spring onion and soy, steak with potato bake and carrot purée, and linefish with asparagus, lemon-butter sauce, roast baby tomatoes and mashed potato. There are also pizzas and burgers on offer, including a chickpea burger to please vegetarians. If you’re dining in a group, go for a meat, cheese or vegetarian platter, available in two sizes to feed a few or a crowd. Those with a sweet tooth will have to choose between two dishes: a chocolate malva pudding served with Amarula crème Anglaise, red wine-glazed cherries and vanilla ice cream, or a berry-and-cardamom cheesecake with berry coulis and strawberry ice cream.

Drinks
Drinks include the estate's own very drinkable wines, both red and white, available by the glass and bottle, as well as soft drinks, spirits and beers.

Service
Service is friendly and attentive.

Ambience
A slick, stylish interior and a sun-drenched balcony with comfortable couches and a view of the vineyards encourages you to settle in for the day.

And...
Book one of the cottages on the property and extend your stay.

  • Great food and service! A beautiful homemade ginger marmalade accompanies the cheese platter. I bought two vases to bring back to Europe with me;)

  • What a beautiful experience. In late December I stumbled upon a blog post from Kunjani's website that painted a picture of an opulent lunch with yummy wines and friendly country style service - I had to try it! The first thing you notice when arriving at Kunjani is the striking red and charcoal facade, followed by an immediately sense of quality and taste. The decor is simple stunning. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked duck breast, rose lamb cutlets all paired with Kunjani's range of delicious wines grown right there on the vines in front of the restaurant deck. Their chef knows what he's doing, dishes are creative, well thought out and surprisingly well plated and presented. The afternoon transformed from a little lunch getaway into a laid back lazy afternoon of wine tasting and an interesting conversation with the owners. It's a very good thing they have 4 very beautiful ensuite villas as it would have been such a shame returning to the city after such a beautifully indulgent and relaxing day of good company, food and wine.

  • What a superb find. I took 12 friends to a birthday lunch at Kunjani - all foodies! Everyone raved about Chef Lamek’s food offering, beautifully presented, excellent portion size and extremely tasty added to the fact that the Kunjani wines were delicious too! Great value for money, superb venue overlooking their vineyards a real spoil. Thanks to Kunjani team for making it a special event
