Steenberg has raised the bar with an innovative new Bistro-style cellar door restaurant and wine tasting venue unlike any other in the Southern Suburbs. Named BistroSixteen82 after the year in which Steenberg was first established, the interactive wine and food destination has seen an overwhelming amount of local and foreign guests, since its opening in November 2009. With an ambience that embodies opulent chic, BistroSixteen82 seamlessly complements Steenberg's popular fine dining establishment, Catharina's.


BistroSixteen82 is set amidst the vineyards at the foothills of the Steenberg Mountains and features spectacular views of the vineyards, Constantia Valley and False Bay. The Bistro is inviting and visually interactive with eclectic design features and an open flow plan.

The high ceilings and earthy natural textures and colours attribute to a slightly industrial feel without detracting from the warm, welcoming ambiance. A terraced dining area leads to reflective water features and enchanting gardens.

The surrounding indigenous gardens are brilliantly offset by a floating glass bridge and an intricate labyrinth to complete a multi-sensory wine destination experience that entice visitors to stay, relax and enjoy the wine and cuisine of the Constantia Valley.

With menus featuring tapas, bistro-style cuisine and sumptuous breakfasts, this is an ideal venue for lunch or a long, lazy brunch.

Intrepid chef and bistro dining specialist Brad Ball, of the River Café and Olympia Café fame, lends his gastronomic savvy to the 70-seater Bistro Sixteen82. A  unique Raw Bar features counter seating and interesting, healthy and delicious raw cuisine such as sashimi, gravadlax, ceviche, carpaccios, oysters and tartars, where dishes are freshly prepared on order by designated Chefs.
