A serious food and wine establishment. Superb cooking and fine wine list, in gracious surroundings. I was fortunate to be there during the annual offal festival, and had wonderful chicken liver parfait with port-soaked figs and equally delicious sweetbreads with mushrooms, capers and chives.

Southern Africa is certainly not the place to eat light meals. Very good food, and very good service, but, please, offer two portion sizes... Good for anywhere in the world!More

Nice restaurant in Cape town! Downstairs and upstairs. Big open kitchen. Good variety of dishes but not to much, so you don't get lost. I recommend the 3 little pigs! Super delicious! Don't forget dessert ...

We couldn't get a table at the first place, so asked for a near by recommendation. We weren't disappointed, we all really enjoyed the food, lots of great flavors and well presented. Attentive professional waiters. It's not cheap, but still worth it for taste and...More

Enjoy creative contemporary cooking in a visually exciting venue. With its historic Table Mountain stone and old brick that dates back to the 18th century, architect Leon Saven's design is complemented by glass, concrete and exposed ducting. Cabbage motif chandeliers and salt dishes, fine table appointments and impeccable service reflect outstanding attention to detail. The menu alters daily, using the freshest local produce and combines unusual flavours to excite the palate of the discerning diner. A boutique wine list which is very reasonably priced.
