Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since. An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenbergs winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands. The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides fine dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit. Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, love to create food which is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness. My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels to Thailand I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. Love. I cook with love and my food is love.

Gourmet Guide Description

Named after the year of origin of Steenberg Estate, on which this popular bistro is situated, it wows all day from breakfast to early-evening tapas, with lingering lunches in-between. Taste their lauded wines before embracing winter indoors in the modern, airy restaurant, or celebrate summer on the terrace with a view of the water features, indigenous gardens, majestic mountains and vineyards. Local, free range and organic produce features prominently on the menu. Chef Kerry Kilpins commitment to sustainability and responsible resourcing, like their support of Abalobi (buying a daily basket of fish directly from fishermen), and her passion of cooking different types of sustainable seafood, is admirable. Favourite ingredients can be spotted – asparagus in summer and Jerusalem artichokes in winter – as can her classic French style with an Asian influence. She ‘cooks with love and is inspired by her travels, eating out, other chefs, the traditions of her multi-cultured kitchen team, and beautiful cookbooks. Look out for the breakfast Benedict, at lunch the slow-roast lamb, and for tapas the choice is endless. If overwhelmed allow the friendly, informative staff to select for you – perhaps the fish tacos, zesty calamari or the ever-popular, yet simple patatas bravas. In addition to the hotel, spa and golf course, the estate offers formal dining at Catherinas Restaurant. “What we put on the plate is equally important as the way our guests are treated.” Chef Kerry Kilpin

    If you like your food smothered in oily and heavy sauces that overpower the rest of the ingredients - this place is for you. Otherwise, really not worth the visit. There are plenty of amaizing places in the area. I would not go back. Such a shame, since i visited a few years ago the quality dropped dramatically.

    Really good bistro with a tapaslike menu, great to share many dishes. Good wine list of all the Steenberg wines plus some local wines.
