New outdoor play area for Skilpadvlei

Skilpadvlei recently launched its brand new outdoor play area at the end of August 2015. The new play area has a designated space to play for 2 – 5 year olds and an enclosed play pen for babies and toddlers.

The outdoor tables and seating area have been expanded into the space of the former outside play park and a new baby play pen is now nestled in-between the outside tables. A newly added outdoor bar counter top and stools creates extra seating space outside for parents wanting to enjoy drinks outside and be able to keep an eye on their children. Note: this counter serves as seating and is not an actual bar – you still have to order your drinks from the waiter or get your drinks inside.

Here are a few photos of the revamped outdoor seating and play areas:

The new additions ensure that Skilpadvlei  remains among the very best of child-friendly restaurants in the Winelands. Visit the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Live screening of rugby matches and an indoor play room are two more reasons why the restaurant’s patrons flock there.

More about Skilpadvlei

Skilpadvlei is a family restaurant on the Polkadraai road. The restaurant serves an a la carte menu that includes burgers and pizzas. The restaurant is the perfect child-friendly option in Winter when adults can enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and children can make use of the indoor play room (with a TV, jungle gym and building blocks). Skilpadvlei also caters for functions and is the ideal venue for a baby shower or kiddies party. (A general tip – Contact the restaurant, not the wedding venue, to book  your party at the restaurant. Many customers get confused when the wedding venue advises that it does not cater for kids parties!)


Driving from Stellenbosch: Take the Polkadraai Road out of town and drive past Neethlingshof and continue straight on the Polkadraai Rd. Just after Mulderbosch on your right, you will see the Skilpadvlei entrance on your left.

Child-friendly amenities:

  • Changing station in the bathroom
  • Several outdoor play areas including a play pen for babies/ toddlers
  • Indoor play room
  • Kids menu
  • Hosts kids parties and baby showers
