COVID-19 Update | The Kraal Restaurant at Joostenberg Wine Estate is currently closed due to the COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa. We hope to open and see you soon again.

We are supporting our sister business, Joostenberg Deli and Butchery, which is a food store on Klein Joostenberg. They are open daily selling fresh, wholesome food. In addition they are taking orders and doing deliveries. Please take a look at the Joostenberg Deli Page for all the details. In the meantime we hope that you keep well, safe and healthy.

 The Kraal Restaurant is a secluded place, situated in a shaded, stone 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.

Menus change every week. 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 also use seasonal veggies and fruit from the farm garden. 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’ve been, and are, important to us.

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.

New menus are shared on social media platforms on a weekly basis.

Booking is essential as we cook just for the number of people who have booked, and space is limited.  A deposit of R150 per person is required upon booking.
