Critic's review

Richard Holmes

Expect an extensive menu of modern bistro cuisine, with stylish plating and generous portions. The fresh salads make for excellent starters, before diving into heartier bistro-style mains: aged sirloin with wild mushroom and sherry sauce, or a succulent pork belly perhaps? The Cheese, Ploughman’s and Tapas platters are ideal for sharing, while daily chalkboard specials add yet more variety and creativity to the menu: think duck spring rolls with hoisin sauce, or ravioli of wild mushrooms and artichoke. If all that choice is bewildering, you won’t go wrong with anything from the impressive wood-fired oven: the thin-base pizzas are particularly good.

The list is limited to Vrede en Lust wines, but reasonably priced to suit most palates and pockets. All are available by the glass. There’s Stellenbrau on tap if you fancy a beer.

The approach is slick, friendly and attentive, with an efficient floor manager keeping a close eye on guests.

The restaurant has a bright and airy feel with Nordic wood tables and exposed beams, with the large restaurant space giving onto a sunny terrace. If the views were of vineyards, not the parking lot, it would be superb.

You’ll find wonderful wood-fired ciabattas, sourdough bread and baguettes for sale in the small deli next to the pizza counter.

  • We recently had a conference at Vrede & Lust and had breakfast and lunch at the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service on the ball. It is such a beautiful venue and I will definitely be back for lunch with friends soon. Try their Viognier or the Malbec, great wines
