It would be hard to find a better location to promote that special Cuban magic that is the signature of the Buena Vista Social Café. Situated on the R44 midway between Stellenbosch and Somerset West this old farmhouse has all the right attributes, as well as wonderful views in all directions, to successfully project the perfect laid back ambience of sultry Havana nights.


With much of the original woodwork well preserved the character of the house speaks for itself. Here you can definitely escape the winter chill - with four fire places to choose from there’s simply no excuse. Come summer, and the spacious high-ceilinged rooms remain cool and airy, whilst a beautiful outside area is reminiscent of a typical hacienda. Enjoy alfresco entertaining under a starry sky whilst local salsa DJs turn up the tempo on the dance floor with contemporary Latino music.


Tempt your palate with a feast of Cuban cuisine with Tapas specialities such as the Flaming Diablos (stuffed Jalepeno chillies) and spicy chorizo sausage in a creamy salsa sauce. For a quick but satisfying meal, there’s plenty in the way of Nachos, Quesadillas and Burritos (with beef, chicken and vegetarian fillings) to choose from. Main courses range from Lamb cutlets to a Cuban-style Paella with prawns, linefish, calamari and mussels. An excellent wine list offers everything from house wine to private cellar exclusive wines and champagnes.




Driving on the R44 we are on Lentelus farm, 800m from the Mooiberg Strawberry Farm.
