The Jordan Restaurant is located next to the estates tasting room and seat up to 80 guests, either indoors or outside on the patio, opened its doors on the 1st of December 2009. The partnership brings together the Jordans, owners of one of the countrys best known and respected wineries, with former South African Chef of the Year Jardine, whose eponymous restaurant in Cape Town was recently listed in the San Pellegrino Worlds 100 Best Restaurants for the second year in a row. George Jardines menu focuses on local and seasonal ingredients sourced from South Africas best suppliers and producers. The restaurant houses a selection of the finest seasonal South African cheeses in a walk-in cheese room. Guests are able to join George Jardine in the cheese room to make a personal selection.

Gourmet Guide Description

'simple sophistication in an enviable setting' Jordan Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is where chef George Jardine and his head chef Kyle Burn have created a loyal following. In summer take your seat outdoors on the deck where you may enjoy lake and vineyard views, in winter cosy fires and heartwarming comfort food satisfy every sophisticated soul. In any season, you will want to share the friendly ambience of the chefs at work in the open kitchen taking immense care in the preparation and plating of their beautiful dishes. These timeless yet distinctive dishes are accompanied by full representation of Jordan wines plus vintage and regional wines. Flavourful treatment of local quality produce is a hallmark here, starting with breads baked on site at the bakery. Expect delicious dishes like rabbit confit with compressed apple and red cabbage slaw, and a tasty, comforting starter of avocado with arancini. The Chalmar sirloin, cooked to perfection and served on a superb Jerusalem artichoke risotto in winter, is sublime. The butter-roasted, crispy quail and the guava and vanilla-chocolate dessert are noteworthy. Chef Kyle describes his food as contemporary, yet guests often say exemplary. If it is more of George's genius that you desire, head to nearby Jardine Restaurant in the centre of Stellenbosch, or to Restaurant Seven in Somerset West. "We thrive on fresh and seasonal ingredients and constantly work on new skills and development." Chef Kyle Burn

    We had an awesome afternoon at Jordan - 11 of us . the service, location, venue stunning.!! Our main courses were all served luke warm and when we raised this with the waiter he returned from the kitchen to advise that the chef said that this is how he serves his food. i have eaten at Jordan on 3 other occasions and this was never the case - my starter was piping hot. I had the gnocchi for main (and i am Italian) and have never eaten luke warm gnocchi. Those that had the red meat also complained that their food was cold. The chips were piping hot. We just felt that our complaint was not handled as expected considering the type of establishment and the amount of money we spent on our lunch . because i had been to Jordan previously i was the one that recommended the venue to these friends for the birthday lunch and felt a little let down. thank you Giorgi Vass

    I'm not one who can easily manage a three course meal. Normally I'm full after the first course, but Sunday's meal was absolutely delicious! Even my fiance couldn't believe I finished everything. I'm not particularly fond of fine dining either, except once in a while, but I really enjoyed the food and so did my fiance. He was crazy about the mussels. Besides the food, what a stunning view! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

    Hi, Wine was very pricy, double what you sell it for at the cellar next door which leaves n bitter taste in the mouth. Surely you need a business model that makes money on food, and a bit on drink, not excessively though.

    I found my starter a little disappointing, because the figs were very small and I do not like raw kale! The rest of the meal was delicious.
