Welcome to Post & Pepper,

in the heart of bustling Stellenbosch

What started as a daydream turned into a full-blown upmarket restaurant in the heart of the historic town’s old Post Office. Rising chef and owner Jess van Dyk launches her solo restaurant venture after working at the helm of some of South Africa’s leading restaurants. Her cooking is playful, refined with reimagined classics and twists on traditional favourites taking you on a flavour-packed journey of pure joy and utter deliciousness.

Jess created a space where all aspects of fine dining is respected and celebrated without the starch, snobbery and price tag. The essence of this restaurant revolves around the simple pleasure of sharing good food, conversation, and time with one another.

Post & Pepper, the home of fun dining, is fast becoming a dining destination for exquisite small plates, complex wine, and friendly efficient service.
