A word from Lars


"Reflecting on the past twelve months, 2014 was a great vintage and received amazing accolades for our wines such as Platter 5-Star, Gold at Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show, Top 100 from Wine Spectator and Gold rating at Veritas National Wine Show. Our restaurant was also acknowledged by receiving Best Restaurant Award at Food 24.
Unfortunately a devastating fire in our work shop destroyed most of our agricultural machinery and we are in the process of rebuilding our infrastructure and replacing
equipment and tractors.
Our staff has once again been the back bone of Buitenverwachting and I would like to thank them for the great support and energy they have invested in the vineyard,
cellar and general up keep of Buitenverwachting.
Thank you for your continued interest and support in Buitenverwachting. I would like to wish you a blessed festive season and New Year."

Buitenverwachting Restaurant has been given an awesome new look and talented chef/patron Edgar Osojnik does not disappoint with his new and exciting menu. A visit to this award winning restaurant is one of the special experiences in the Western Cape. A five star restaurant situated on one of the most beautiful and unspoilt wine farms in the Cape and so close to the City ...
Eminent food critic Jos Baker reviewed the Restaurant recently and had this to say:
There's a hospitable holiday mood wafting through Buitenverwachting, the informality rejuvenating the image of the former stand-alone restaurant and attracting a younger crowd.
Not that the food standards have relaxed, nor the emphasis on seasonal freshness, which dedicated Edgar Osojnik, long standing chef and partner, would not have tolerated.
Everything is simpler since the restaurant became part of a free-flowing, vibrant unit. Follow the flow from the informal Coffee BloC (coffee beans are fresh from the roastery), to the sunny courtyard, linking tasting room, terrace and restaurant. Where you eat depends on your mood
