We had an exceptional experience. The team are courteous, knowledgeable and friendly and of course the food was amazing. The menu is a beautiful seasonal reflection of modern south african food. Each dish is carefully considered, well balanced and beautifully presented. The stylish interior and large windows also create a wonderful ambiance. Mertia is a MUST!

"Lovely surprise "

We had a lovely evening, food was delightful along with the wine paring. Food was a bit rich for me personally and I would like to have a more detailed menu (it's just nice to keep). The staff was amazing and attentive. Sommelier was very knowledgeable. Will definitely go back.

A lovely experience from being met at the door until we left. The restaurant is spacious with nice view onto the town. The three course lunch with extra plates from the chef was beautifully presented with lots of tastes. In particular the springbok for main course was delicious. I do not like banana so a different coconut based dessert was provided. Lovely presentation. I went for the wine pairing and all 5 wines were of superior quality from some well respected wine estates.
Definitely will return in the future.

Mertia has been on our list, to go to, since opening. We live in CPT so it’s a commitment! The Restaurant Week offer convinced us to book! Lunch is advertised as a three course meal, however, the mis en bouche is two significant items, making it four courses. The food is excellent, well balanced, beautifully presented and served. It’s excellent value and has convinced us to return to have the multi course dinner next time we stay over.

About MERTIA

Cuisine: Fine Dining

MERTIA RESTAURANT CELEBRATES THE BEST OF STELLENBOSCH
The newest star on the Western Cape’s fine dining landscape sees two sons of Stellenbosch unite to bring MERTIA back to the second oldest town in South Africa.

Named after owner and founder Marais Kirsten-Uys’ grandmother, she taught him that anything worth doing is worth doing well. Masterminding the seasonal, set menu is Chef Matt van den Berg, whose flair for elevated dining is informed by fresh, local ingredients. Together, Marais and Matt are realising their shared dream of inviting you into an intimate space – right in the heart of Stellenbosch – where there is an open dialogue between guests and the kitchen, and where the experience evolves with you through every course and every detail, right down to the wine pairing.

We now invite you to celebrate the best of Stellenbosch with us.

In the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa’s oldest town after Cape Town, two of the town’s sons have joined forces and returned to create MERTIA, an elevated dining experience with a taste for the finer things. MERTIA is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Crossing the antique gracht from De Wet Square is a rite of passage that allows every guest to leave the hustle and bustle of the vibrant town behind, opening yourself up to true South African hospitality elevated to world-class status, and to surrender to the ever-evolving experience of celebrating being together.
