Basic Bistro is cosy restaurant right in the heart of Stellenbosch. We have been making locals and strangers feel at home for many years, with a dedicated focus on using quality ingredients to prepare all meals while setting a comfortable and intimate atmosphere for our guests. We focus on creating Gourmet Burgers, Bountiful Pasta Dishes, Flavoursome Malay Curry, Matured Steak and Espresso Based Coffees of International Standard. We also pride ourselves in a finely selected and intimate wine list that ranges from ‘Easy Drinking’ to ‘Connoisseur Wines’. Cool down with a White Wine Cocktail, Iced Coffee or Mixed Berry Milkshake topped with whipped cream. Or perhaps calm down with a pot of High Mountain Tea, produced by the tea experts at Nigiro. Have a romantic evening in the corner or invite your friends for a Burger and Craft beer – whatever you do, we hope to make you feel right at home.

    Had the Cape Malay curry - we went there because of the curry that we had in 2017. It was slightly more hot them my memory but still spicy. With the help of the condiments - yoghurt and and improvised salsa, we did enjoy the meal. And will always go back! (did miss the naan bread last night that we had in 2017, though.)

    I have marked the otherwise excellent service down as our on-line booking / reservation was not honored - and our booked table was given to “first comments” , despite us being on time. Otherwise, service good and lovely setup.
