Paulina’s Restaurant at Rickety Bridge


Paulina was one of the first lady landowners in South Africa and loved the land she tamed and cultivated. She spent many years nurturing crops and working the same soils you see on the estate today. In homage to Paulina and the land, the restaurant team is supporting local producers and farmers – just the way she would have.

Relax on the terrace with breathtaking views of the vineyards and mountains or enjoy a cosy atmosphere by the fireplace during colder months, all while savouring a glass of exquisite wine. The full range of award-winning Rickety Bridge wines is available to complement your lunch. Taste your way through the ranges at the Wine Tasting Centre, or follow the suggested wine pairings on the menu. A carefully selected menu has been created to delight the little ones, too.
