Fodor's Expert Review Bistro 1682
Named for the year the Steenberg wine estate on which it sits was established, this not-to-be-missed bistro serves dishes intended to be paired with the estate's vintages, but it remains the opposite of hoity-toity fine dining. Dishes like eggs Benedict with pork-belly bacon and rosti, or the Wagyu beef burger with foie gras are the perfect foil to a minimalist environment of bleached wood, metallic accents, and high ceilings. The outside terrace with its gorgeous mountain views is the perfect setting for brunch or lunch. Try favorites like the mushroom risotto and seared tuna with squid-ink emulsion. Or stick around until the sun drops, and indulge in a tapas menu of ginger-lime beef tataki, gnocchi carbonara, and churros and chocolate. Service stops by 8:30. This is the perfect spot to while away a beautiful Cape day.
