A nice place for lunch - the service is friendly, food is good, wine (notably the Sauvignon Blanc) is also very enjoyable! A lovely stop en route to wherever you're off to. Recommend sitting outside if weather permits

Rivendell never ceases to please with its beautifully prepared cuisine, it's clean cut ambience and it's lovely location. Another gem of the Overberg not to be missed. Excellent food, good wines, friendly personnel and atmosphere.

This was a quick stop, with all the wines for tasting been poured immediatly. The wines were sub-par, the roaf was noisey, but the estate tried and in the end, this was not a complete waste of time.

Stopped by for a tasting and was particularly impressed by the Burgandy Shiraz 2012. The maiden vintage for this wine was 2011 and the '12 has already won an award. Also, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc has won a double gold so the vinyard has hit...More
