Kunjani Wines & Restaurant are all about greeting guests with a warm welcome, creating visually appealing and tasty food, and offering luxury accommodation whilst being surrounded by beautiful views of rows of lush vineyards. In a relatively short space of time, Kunjani made it to the prestigious EatOut Top 500 list for 2019.
In line with their philosophy to only source seasonal ingredients and the very best fresh produce, Kunjani has streamlined their menu to reflect their passion for locally sourced, fresh, wholesome and healthier food options that are also sustainable. By sourcing only locally grown produce, the restaurant aims to act responsibly towards the planet and its natural resources and reduce its carbon footprint. As a result, they only source fish from the green list of South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI), which includes options such as Kingklip, Dorado, Hake, Rainbow Trout, Yellowfin Tuna and Yellowtail.
The Kunjani restaurant, designed by the iconic Haldane Martin, can also host an array of private functions such as birthdays, anniversaries, year-end functions, product launches and corporate workshops. The glass-enclosed restaurant means guests can enjoy the views all-year round, regardless of the weather conditions.
Guest accommodation is available in 4 self-catering cottages adjacent to the restaurant and tasting facilities. Kunjani Wines, Restaurant and Cottages are owner-managed by German Entrepreneur, Paul Barth, and South African Business Woman, Pia Watermeyer.

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
