"Incredible food!"
8.0 Cuisine 10 | Service 8 | Atmosphere 6

Went for lunch which was an incredible menu, with large portions and great wine. We absolutely loved the cuisine! Even had enough for dinner the next night. Sat outside and it felt very much like being in someone's backyard, but it was a beautiful day with lovely views and great service. Definitely worth the visit.

"Great new venue"
8.7 Cuisine 10 | Service 6 | Atmosphere 10

The food was excellent as well as the ambience under trees looking at mountains, enjoying excellent food (different, tasty and super size portions). The official welcome and friendliness of the waiter need to be looked at smile when serving and friendliness was not 5 star, but I will recommend friends to experience the restaurant it was great.

"Truly farm to table"

Fabulous setting - the perfect Sunday lunch spot. We had an amazingly fresh and flavorful meal which left us content but not stuffed afterwards.

Amazing coconut meringue dessert and the pork was incredible.

It is refreshing to go to a restaurant in the winelands that doesn't have the same "fashionable" menu choices as everyone else. At Overgraauw the lunch was wholesome in an original farmstyle fashion...very well cooked, tasty and surprisingly light. The bertroot tarte tartin was excellent...pastry superb. The main meal vegetables were cooked perfectly. Go hungry since portions are large. A definite place to go for good food and an unpretentious experience.

About Overgaauw Restaurant

The kitchen at Overgaauw Restaurant is owned and run by chef Jason Comins, one of the original cooks from The Table at De Meye which won Eat Out’s Award for best Country Style Restaurant in 2011. Trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School by Darina Allen, his cooking is simple and straightforward, relying on the quality of seasonal ingredients sourced as locally as possible, from small producers and farmers.


Jason is cooking in a space that was once the farm’s vinegar room. Here barrels of vinegar were made using an original ‘mother’ dating back to the 1940’s, and wine from the working cellar. It is situated in the original stable – the first building to built on Overgaauw in 1905 by the current farmer’s great grandfather. The weathering of the walls and exposed hand-made clay bricks have been preserved in a sensitive conversion by the farmer; David van Velden.


Every week, Jason looks around and phones suppliers to see what’s in season or what’s available from his little network. He then constructs a 3-course set menu based on a protein like beef, lamb or chicken, coming up with accompaniments based on the seasonal produce. There are always products like cheese or charcuterie from local artisans featured too.
