Bistro Sixteen 82 was named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009 and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since.
An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terrace dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive Winelands.
The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that compliment the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides fine dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit.
Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, love to create food which is seasonal, flavorful and bursts with freshness. “My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels, to Thailand, I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. Love. I cook with love and my food is love.”
Internationally, Bistro Sixteen82 has been recognised in the list of 20 of the World’s Best Winery Restaurants by Canada’s renowned Wine Access magazine. Locally, listings included prominent mentions in Fleur du Cap’s Top 100 Places; Eat in Cape Town; and EAT OUT’s Best Bistros list.
