Set in the garden on the sprawling grounds of the Backsberg Wine Estate, Backsberg restaurant is an alfresco experience during summer - moved indoors next to roaring fire in winter. An a la carte menu features laid back comfort food, made with fresh ingredients and a special Backsberg twist. The restaurant prides itself on being child-friendly, offering a children’s menu, a jungle gym and plenty of space to play.
Lamb on the spit is offered every day in summer, and on Sundays in winter. A three course menu is offered on Sundays, including live music and an appealing winelist! Some of our menu favourites include; the lamb Ciabatta, served with a fresh salad and potato wedges; Franschhoek salmon trout, pan-fried with Backsberg Chardonnay sauce, potatoes and fresh vegetables, rounded off perfectly with the majestic, Summer pavlova.
Make sure you experience the Backsberg Picnic Concerts in Summer where you’ll get to see some of South Africa’s best musical acts perform.
