All five meals where well below average, the venue and staff made up for the poor food experience but if this is the food standard here, Simon's needs a new Chef and i mean "yesterday". What a let down as they also used to have a grass area for the kids which is not stones and no play area!

Went there after a wine tasting and were seated promptly. It was a nice day so we sat outside but there is a massive fireplace inside so I guess cold days are not a problem. Ordered starters and went with the Fish Cakes and Calamari as mains and it arrived in good time. Both meals were great and the chips... More

Have visited Simons on several occasions and always enjoy the ambiance (fire), wine and the food. Whilst not particularly fine dining, it's good fare and the combo of setting, wine and food are worth retuning to.

My second visit here, first time was lunch (and the peri peri prawns I still dream of) and this time dinner for my birthday, Could not wish for a better birthday dinner venue. Love the setting and the menu is so good and varied. My mussels were divine as was the wine. Easy to park, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.... More

Picnic setting not bad but the food is boring, bland, tasteless and a rip off. The service was absolutely terrible! Had to ask the waiter for the same thing 5 x. The whole time. Salt, the bill, coffee. Table was never cleared. We sat with dirty plates and glasses till we left. We were never asked if everythings okay or... More

Has the feel of a tourist trap. Toilets are leaky, blocked and dirty. Taps not functioning properly. Wait staff was friendly but the Banting breakfast reminded me of what the French would call a 'mean' portion.

We visited Simon's Deli for lunch today with friends. It was a great location and nicely decorated, but we were disappointed with the service. We were served the wrong item (veg pie instead of spinach & feta) plus an underdone steak roll and none of the waitresses wanted to help correct either item. It was a shame as the food... More

We met with friends visiting from overseas for lunch and sat in the deli area as the restaurant was meant to be full. The platters looked lovely, but not sure what the price was, as ordered by our friends. We ordered the pies and a sandwich. We found then to be very average for the price and the pies had... More

We were a group of 10 and ordered three courses and were pleasantly surprised that they got everything right! The food was generous and beautifully presented and was full of flavor! Very impressed

Nestled in the fertile Constantia Valley lies a 300-year old wine estate,
Groot Constantia and on it, Simon's restaurant, where we celebrate the riches of the
Cape winelands by transforming the freshest ingredients into memorable meals.

Revel in the Cape Town summer by dining al fresco on our terrace with panoramic views of the Groot
Constantia vineyards. Savour the wines of the valley or enjoy our wide selection of craft beers.
As the weather turns, join us inside where we like to light a giant fire on chilly days
