My wife and I had a delightful evening .They have done a great job setting up this new restaurant.The online booking system is good. The revamped venue is excellent with a light airy interior looking out over glorious views of the Constantia winelands down to the sweeping coast of False Bay. The food and service was excellent.My only small suggestion... More

We had lunch here during the holidays. After repeated requests for menus, water, glasses and to place our order, we waited for an hour for the food to arrive. When it did, it was very tasty. However, we didn't think it was worth the wait. If you go, set aside plenty of time.

I was excited to see the refurbished old Constantia Nek Restaurant and found my first experience less than ideal. An idyllic setting with exquisite views of the vineyards, but service not quite up to the high season hoards, and menu at La Parada somewhat limited, harrowed staff and rigid chefs too busy to consider slight deviations.

Recently revamped we popped in for a drink, average pricing and food going past looked good, some of the old character has been retained which is great, a fair selection of draught too for beer lovers

We took my aged mother-in-law to lunch at this famed fish restaurant and enjoyed the attentive and knowledgeable staff. The lack of soft furnishings means that, when full, the restaurant is noisy.

Great restaurant if you don't want to hear yourself talk - acoustically bad as hollow hall and unfinished ceiling - drapes & ceiling will silence loud noises.

We have been twice to the Constantia Neck restaurant in the last week. The setting is stunning, the food is interesting and the waiters are well trained. It's not cheap but worth it. Our gripe is the noise, it is impossible to have a decent conversation.Please do something about before we come the next time.

Staff seemed uninterested as I was not going to be a big spender. Had they been more friendly I might well have called back for lunch etc

My wife and I had just come off the mountain after hiking across table mountain from the cable car and we are parched and ready for a cold beer or two. I guess we were a bit untidy after our 6 hour sweaty ordeal and that was the reason we got a few funny looks. We visited on a Sunday... More

Having beautiful memories of this listed establishment dating back to my younger years when I lived in Cape Town, it was with keen interest and anticipation that I decided to re-visit this lovely venue during my recent visit to Cape Town. The location at the top of Constantia Nek, as well as the scenic drive to, wherever you are approaching... More
