Oude Werf Hotel - Liefde Bistro

Western Cape » Stellenbosch

On 2 April 1982, the well-known Oude Werf restaurant was opened. This Restaurant is regarded as one of the culinary landmarks in Stellenbosch. For decades the restaurant was renowned as the best in town. To maintain the reputation and in keeping with the vastly improved levels in the hotel, the restaurant was completely renovated during 2003-2006 and become known as 1802 Restuarant. The Hotel has always striven to present a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere in the restaurant for the benefit of our many regular guests. It aims to maintain an unhurried pace so that guests would never feel pressurised. In addition to the extensive traditional menu, a variety of lighter dishes are available, including Continental cuisine.

Breakfast at 1802 Restuarant consists of a selection of cereals, fruits, juices, yogurts, cold meats, cheeses, muffins and toast, followed by a choice of warm dishes. Tea & filter coffee are of course available.

During the winter months, the fireplace keeps guests snug while the air-conditioning, not to mention the magnificent vine-covered courtyard where most tables are situated, provides a welcome respite from the African sun in summer. Our extensive Stellenbosch wine-of-origin list makes it possible for the 1802 Restaurant to be one of the best places where one can enjoy some of the finest wine this area has to offer.
