There are few places in the world that leave you speechless. We arrived with our AC Cobra, dirty from the road and tired. First seating. They made us feel at home. The food made us feel in paradise. Such talent, such passion, such creativity: no...More

We had the wine pairing with the tasting menu. Really interesting food but occasional misses on the wine pairing. Quite pricey for Cape Town, but definitely worth a visit for foodies.

Worth the wait for a reservation. We booked for a special occasions and everything was special about it. The service, the food, the wines, the location. The food was phenomenal. Don't miss the tuna dish in the can. It will blow your mind with flavours.

Selected for a wedding anniversary dinner. Strongly recommended, totally unexpected. Sits high on the backside of Table Mountain, long winding road, part of the wine estate. The menu is actually a tasting menu with two choices, full everything plus wine pairings, or selected items from...More

The best dinner we've had in over a year in South Africa. Right from the start you receive a professional and friendly welcome. The restaurant has a minimalist look as does your table. Quite sparse which enables you to enjoy the beautifully presented food. The...More

We went and had the Winter Special Lunch menu, which is very similar to their tasting menu with a couple of minor omissions and changes and which is really good value. The servings are just the right size that at the end of the meal...More

Set high up in Constantia the views must be amazing in day time although at night it's just the odd twinkling lights far away. We went for the so called reduced gourmet menu (still 6 courses) with wine pairing. Some stunningly beautiful and gorgeous courses...More

Hi there, I have booked this restaurant however is there an al la carte menu in the evenings or is it just the taster menu? Ideally I just wanted to come for steak. Many thanks for your help.

Hi there. We currently offer a choice between a full tasting menu or a reduced tasting menu. Please refer to our website for the options and pricing. Thank you!
Do you have to have the entire set lunch, or can you choose just a starter and a main?

I am not sure, as we went for dinner and we're only offered the full 13 courses or a smaller 7 course. It is more of a tasting experience of small bits than, say sitting down to a steak or a pasta dish.
