Service, ambience and 5 star quality is definitely the norm at this restaurant. Staff are well trained, friendly and provide good service. Food is of excellent quality and the Bobotie, a traditional Cape Dish is definitely a winner. Highly recommended

Awesome menu and service. The food was amazing. i would definitely go back again. Don't forget the Continental breakfast, great variety and delicious treat to go with your morning coffee and the view of the garden.

Here the head chef creates hotel classics alongside modern and seasonally influenced dishes. The Conservatory menu places a great emphasis on fresh produce from both The Cellars-Hohenort gardens and local green-friendly suppliers, and this gives it the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the Constantia Valley.
