Southey’s Bistro and Wine Boutique
Situated in a beautiful garden setting on Main Road in Somerset West, SOUTHEYS FAMILY BISTRO offers relaxed al fresco family dining with a wonderful, safe playground setting for kids.
There is a huge jungle gym nestled in the trees, a jumping castle and 10m double waterslide in summer to keep the kids entertained (don’t forget to bring cozzies and towels!) while Moms, Dads and Grandparents enjoy a delicious meal and savour some of the delicious wines we have to offer.
Our restaurant is also the perfect venue for business people wanting to get some work done and to have business meetings in a relaxed environment.
We offer unlimited free wi-fi and our Business Breakfast is hard to beat value for money! SOUTHEYS FAMILY BISTRO is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday and for breakfast and lunch on Sundays & public holidays.
SOUTHEYS WINE BOUTIQUE offers a choice of over 600 different wines from some of the most prestigious wine estates in the Western Cape at close to cellar door prices.
We also host a monthly ‘Meet the Winemaker’ Dinner and bi-annual wine festivals, so keep an eye on our events page! SOUTHEYS WINE BOUTIQUE is open 7 days a week from 9am – 6pm (3pm on Sundays & public holidays)
After both working as chefs for many years in hotels and restaurants in London, we returned to South Africa in 2003 and bought a small country hotel which we ran for 10 years.
But the bright lights beckoned and Somerset West was the ideal balance between village life and the buzz of a big city…so in January 2013 we made the big move and bought Southeys Family Bistro (which was then Manuka Restaurant) with the dream of owning a truly family friendly restaurant.
We made renovations, installed a jungle gym, revised the old menu and so our dream began.
We are still constantly working to create the perfect family venue, with plans for an indoor kids playground and an adjoining summer / winter seating area to be constructed before the rains begin next year (winter 2015).
We are constantly adapting our menu to find the perfect balance for our varied clientele.
