Oude Werf’s dining history began with the hearty 19th Century country dishes of legendary Hotel owner, Tant Betje Wium. Today, our Chef explores the region’s many flavours and vintages at a splendid new restaurant with in-situ kitchen, fireside interior and vine-covered courtyard – just off our poolside bar/coffee lounge and our famous ‘voorstoep’ on Church Street. Breakfast, dinner, lunch or high tea: Lekker eet! Guten appetit.



Our daily Continental Buffet offers a generous selection of seasonal fruit, local cheeses, meats and patisserie. Still peckish? Order a traditional cooked breakfast or one of our signature dishes like Eggs Benedict … with fresh barista coffee, naturally.


Recharge any time from noon to sundown in our shady courtyard (or indoors) with café style lunch-time favourites like salads, generously-filled sandwiches, scrumptious Cape snoek-cakes, classic fish ‘n chips, sirloin, or one of our ‘man-size’ ground beef burgers.


Settle in for Cape flavours with a gourmet twist, featuring locally-farmed produce. Sample 3 classic Cape flavours with our ‘Oude Werf Trio’ main. And don’t miss a more-ish dessert or a glass or two of our region’s top vintages!

Ploughman's Platter

Let’s take it back to honest-to-goodness, eat-with-your-hands, artisan-inspired food. You don’t have to be a ploughman to love this selection of charcuterie, pâté, pickles, bread, cheeses and preserves, just a lover of real, authentic goodness. At R195, it serves two and includes a glass of House MCC sparkling wine per person. Book a table at Oude Werf Restaurant today. Email us here or call us at (021) 887 4608.

Wine list

This is ‘Wine Country’ and our selection is always one of the latest and best, featuring top names from some of our world-famous wine region’s estates. Our listing offers styles from classic, award-winning vintages to innovative, easy-drinking favourites. Please feel free to ask us for information about wine excursions/tastings in the Winelands.


“Cocktails, because no good story ever began with someone eating a salad.” – author unknown. Whether you’re meeting new friends or old, toasting a birthday or just the end of a long day, celebrate with one of our new cocktails. There’s a cool Blue Smurf concoction, and four famous cocktails and added a sophisticated twist to each. Enjoy! (PS We also have scrumptious salads!)
