This restaurant offers a small, well-crafted menu with a lovely variety of continental cuisine. If you’re there for lunch, basil pesto-topped grilled kingklip that’s served on a bed of vegetables and noodles out to fill you up without much fuss. The scrumptious meal comes with a sour crème sauce.

For something a little heartier and more comforting, beef fillet medallions, lamb shank or braised oxtail that’s been cooked in red wine and vegetable sauce is served with creamed garlic potatoes and vegetables. It’ll more than sate your hunger.

Desserts are classic: think crème brûlée, pavlova and cheese platters. There’s a range of other special menus, including a vegan lunch one.

A wine menu that encompasses fine French bubbles and some of the Western Cape’s most well-loved vinos, like the fruity Steenberg sauvignon blanc and Rupert and Rothschild Classique brave red blend.

Warm and hands-on, the staff seem earnest in ensuring that your dining experience is as pleasant as possible, even if the larger parties – this being a popular function venue, after all – do seem to draw a lot more TLC, sometimes at the expense of smaller tables.

This is a spectacular venue with immaculately groomed grounds, a glass house for more intimate parties and a koi pond that makes it a serene setting. The Cape Dutch architecture lends a certain exoticism to this part of The Big Smoke. Whether you’re seated in the glass house, the veranda or the lawns, be sure you allow yourself to have as much sun as possible.

    Buitengeluk did some catering for a readers day event we hosted and the food | service and professionalism was outstanding !!!!
    We reserved a small bridal shower event at Buitengeluk, and wow are we blow away! The venue's planner Fern bent over backwards to accommodate out needs and special requests! We had such a wonderful time and can not wait to go back!

    Thank you!!!!!
    Sadly my review on Buitengeluk Restaurant is not as nice as the others on your website, but it is something that I think management should be aware of. My husband asked my daughter in law to make a booking for us, to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary on Sunday 21 September 2014. She called the restaurant on Sunday morning to confirm that the table had been reserved and to make it special for us. Upon our arrival we went to the empty booking desk outside which was filled with menus and no staff member in sight. We asked one waitress, a lady with braids in her hair about our booking and she said, "Just sit at that table over there and she would clean it now", still laden with dirty dishes. When we told her we had a booking she started asking other waiters who were a good few meters away in a loud voice, what she should do. We were told to sit anywhere and they would see to us. All the staff then disappeared and we were left standing there for 20 minutes, after I asked a waiter to call the manager. 20 Minutes later Teddy arrived with the booking schedule and said yes, Cedric's name was on the list and we could sit wherever we liked as due to weather conditions, the table was not where it should have been. Although, by this time, the sun was shining. When we told them a table should have been ready and we have booked, he shrugged his shoulders. We told him that we were leaving and would go somewhere else and he said, OK! I cannot believe the horrendous service and how Buitengeluk managed to spoil a surprise that my husband had prepared a whole week before. I hope this matter will be taken up and I would appreciate an apology in this regard.
    Venue is beautiful.

    Service is non-existent, which is a clear reflection of Management, not the waitrons.

    Food was good!!

    Overall - there are better options.
    Hi Phern and Jill.
    Hope you are all doing well.
    Just want to say a very big Thank You for being so professional in your dealings with me for my daughters baby shower on 9th August 2014.
    A good time was had by all and I definitely score a ten out of ten for the service received, venue lay out and the food was outstanding!
    Thank you should be awarded a gold star. You are quite an asset to Buitengeluk!
    Will definitely be making use of this venue in the future!
    Have a good day!
