Oude Werf is one of Stellenbosch’s oldest - and newest - landmarks for food lovers. Our original Restaurant was an Eikestad favourite. Today, our beautifully redesigned ‘modern-meets-vintage’ bistro, named “Liefde” (“Love”, in Afrikaans) still preserves our essential traditions:  homey, Cape classics prepared with love… and a contemporary gourmet twist from chef, Albert van der Loo.

Liefde’s exciting new menus features plain, simple and down-to-earth sensational!   From lunchy light meals under the vines of our shady courtyard patio, to robust country a la carte dinner specialities – served alfresco or indoors around our fireplace. Settle in for a snack or sundowners at poolside. Try more-ish cheesecake or ‘tuisgebak’ and coffees on our Voorstoep. And you dare not miss a taste of some of the Cape most quaffable vintages from the estates of our world-famous wine region.

Liefde Bistro seats up to 75 guests.

Breakfast: 07h00 - 10h30 Monday - Saturday and from 08h00 - 10h30 on Sundays.
Lunch: 11h00 - 18h00
Dinner: 18h00- 22h00
