Babylonstoren is one of Cape Town’s most popular vineyards and is great for a lunch break between tastings around Stellenbosch and Franschoek. There are two restaurants, Babel and the Greenhouse Restaurant, that are both located on its working farm. Babel does fine dining and offers family-style platters for group bookings and a seasonal à la carte menu for smaller parties, while the Greenhouse Restaurant is more casual, situated in the middle of the farm’s produce gardens, and serves dishes like spiced garden pot pie and Spanish cured pork loin.
Don’t miss out on the farm’s expansive wine tasting menu, featuring Babylonstoren’s flagship wines like the Nebukadnesar and Sprankel. If you’re hoping to eat at Babel, make sure to book a spot—it’s one of the most popular stops along Cape Town’s wine routes, and reservations open nine months in advance.
