The Kraal Restaurant

The Kraal Restaurant is a secluded place, situated in a shaded, stone walled courtyard at Joostenberg Wine Estate. It’s part of the old family farm, where we grew up, and where we still have lots of get-togethers and celebrations. Slow lunches are served at wooden tables, set outside in between fruit trees and wild olives, next to the farm werf and garden. 

Our district, Muldersvlei, and the surrounding area is traditionally a mixed farming area. We are lucky to have access to a wide variety of interesting fresh produce on our doorstep. We support local farmers and producers as much as possible and use seasonal herbs, veggies and fruit from the farm garden too. Our menus are guided by what is delicious, seasonal and growing in our area.  It’s all about local flavours, our childhood food memories, influences from places we’ve been to and the people who were, and are, important to us. New menus are posted on our social media accounts regularly.

Tyrrel Myburgh and his team farm organically and make magic in the winery and vineyards. The full range of Joostenberg wines, including some rare bottles from the small batch collection and specially kept older vintages, are on offer. The tasting room is open from 11h – 15h every Friday to Sunday.  (Sadly, the tasting room is currently closed due to government restrictions) 

Although we are currently closed due to the Coronavirus crisis, we are offering the comfort of a farm style Sunday lunch delivered to your home. In addition to our menu which changes frequently, there are a few extra delicious items to add to your order.
