For my birthday lunch earlier this month, I booked at The Table at De Meye. I’ve been wanting to visit for months! So on a sunny Saturday, hubby and I dropped the littles off with aunty for the night and made our way out to Stellenbosch. A whole day and night of alone time stretched out before us… such bliss.
When we arrived at De Meye, we made our way to the wine tasting room before we sat down at our table for two nestled under an enormous oak tree. We sipped on a crisp rosé/shiraz blend, chatted without having to worry about one little running off for miles and the other little constantly interrupting, and we ate like kings. I cannot even begin to describe how incredibly delicious the food was. Here’s a link to the chef Jessica’s post which can give you more detail! After lunch, we grabbed a blanket from one of the nearby benches, laid it out on the grass under our oak tree, and just soaked up some dappled afternoon sunlight. When we arrived home much later we both fell asleep for a few hours – late afternoon naps just don’t happen with children around and it was utterly bizarre to wake up at 6pm with not a worry in the world.
I cannot wait to visit The Table again, the menu changes every week as it’s depicted by the fresh produce that’s available at the time, so you’re guaranteed something unique. It’s an absolute must-visit!
