Meerendal dates back to 1702, when the farm was granted to Jan Meerland by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel. By 1712, Meerland's widow, Maria, had 60,000 vines growing on the farm. When the Starke family bought the estate in 1929, only a small vineyard existed. However, it displayed Meerendal's potential and consequently wheat fields were turned into vineyards in the early 1930s. Meerendal's gracious Cape Dutch homestead is a landmark in the Durbanville area. Overlooking the mountains and vineyards, the pastoral vista is truly breathtaking. The loft above the wine cellar, with its magnificent 150-year old Oregon pine beams and floors, provides an elegant setting for sampling some of the fine Meerendal wines.
Upon arrival we were informed that 2 of the 7 main meal items were out of stock. Prawn tempura starter was anything but Tempura, they were oily had virtually no batter covering them. Potatoes served with the Beef fillet were ice cold.
Hollandaise sauce as described on the menu was a bechamel based sauce definitely not Hollandaise sauce as it is supposed to be. Meat on Lamb shank was so tough and dry I couldnt cut it off with my very sharp pocket knife.
Pork Loin was also very tough and dry. Worst of all the bill for 9 people was R1800. Sent an e mail to the restaurant and received a reply from the managing director who promised to investigate and give me an answer the following day, four days later I'm still waiting
