When ever we go to Cape Town we like to go to this beautiful place. Unlike a lot of places in Cape Town, this place is not at all pretentious. The restaurant is nicely situated so as not to spoil the beauty of the location. After a nice hike through the nature reserve, reward yourself with a hearty breakfast and... More

A beautiful setting with ok food and disappointing service. My chicken pate on some cold meat platter was un-eatable.

Very nice cafe for drinks and light food, most welcome after completing a hike over Devil's Peak. Cheesecakes are a speciality.

I have been visiting the memorial with visiting friends for many years. The memorial itself is interesting with great views over the suburbs. But now the restaurant has changed hands, and it is difficult to fault it. Good menu choice, good service and great food

We had been out riding the new Table Mountain mtb trails. Despite a good but early breakfast, a lot of climbing over a short distance had made me hungry, very hungry. The ride up the hill to the restaurant seemed to take forever in my weakened state, but as soon as we parked our bikes on the bike rack (... More

The garden of the restaurant offers great views, just the bushes need to be trimmed back a bit to make the viewing more easy. The food is very good and reasonable priced for the location. You might want to go on weekdays if you are looking for a relaxed time and better service, as on the weekend it was very... More

We had a birthday lunch at the restaurant on a warm summers day. The spot has been renovated and is much better equipped and now has a safe kiddies play area. The staff were efficient and the food was decent. The beef burger was amazing, real amazing onion rings and chips! We also all had the scones which came with... More

The salads here are great value for money. I ordered the tuna nicoise which came with a very generous portion of freshly cooked tuna. My companions had the cape malay curry and chicken caeser salad. All accompanied by a bottle of the Durbanville hills sauvignon blanc at a very reasonable price. The service was a little slow but it is... More

We were very favourably surprised with our return visit here recently. We managed to book a table for an early lunch on a busy hot public holiday at short notice. Although the outside seating capacity is enormous we had a lovely table with views and our attentive waitress served us a variety of delicious and generous meals promptly: mussels, chicken... More

Most enjoyable lunch with friends. Food was superb, service polished and the view simply magnificent. Best cheesecake ever! Very reasonably priced and definitely worth a visit. Heartbreaking to see vandalized figure of CJ Rhodes overlooking the beloved Cape Town scenery.
