To be captivated by the allure of La Pineta is hardly surprising. The restaurant is situated in the pine forest previously known as "Louw se Bos", fondly remembered by long term Stellenboschers as a romantic picnic site. The telephone directory contains a long and illustrious list of household names whose relationships were forged out of romantic courtships that blossomed beneath the pines. Would Stellenbosch still proudly boast families like Basson, Bezuidenhout, Botha, Coetzee, Cronje, De Klerk, Du Toit, Engelbrecht, Fourie and Malan to mention but a few, if not for the magic of this pine forest.


An extensive menu offers an impressive selection of starters ranging from the standard Shrimp Cocktail to Beef and Ostrich Carpaccio. Patrons are hard pressed to make a choice for main course with plenty of pizzas and classic pasta dishes such as the Carbonara and Marinara as well as the house speciality - La Pineta with bacon, chicken and mushrooms in a creamy tomato sauce. All pasta dishes are available with either Fettucini, Penne or Spaghetti. Seafood lovers can enjoy a Mixed Seafood Platter for two which offers a generous selection of seafood at a very affordable price. Great care is taken with the Steaks to ensure that they are grilled to satisfaction with six grades of cooking available and a choice of sauces to complement your meat. Popular specialties include the Lamb’s Neck which is slow casseroled in the pizza oven, and the pan-fried Springbok Fillets served with a blueberry sauce.


La Pineta, with its unrivalled setting, beautiful grounds, impressive view and ample parking, is the ideal venue for weddings, functions and parties for large or small groups. Set menus are available which offer a choice of starter, main and dessert as well as platters for vegetarians. Please contact Lerina, Nico or Nicholas who will tailor a proposal to satisfy your unique or special requirements. Lerina würde sich freuen, Sie auf das Allerherzlichste in unserem Restaurant begrüssen zu dürfen.

We also stock a wide range wines - twenty one red, twenty four white and five sparkling wines.
