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

The food was excellent and Brian our waiter was polite, very helpful and the service was excellent !! !! Not sure if we would return as the noise was overbearing, you could not have a conversation without shouting. A shame as it is a lovely setting with wonderful views over Cape Town.

The experience was awful. Whoever designed the restaurant should be fired! It was so noisy that we couldn't hear the waiter or even our friends sitting at our table. The ood was average and it was really expensive. Will not go back!

It is so sad to see this old place declining. The setting is magnificent and the potential is just incredible... Any innovative operator can do great things here. As it now stands, everything is bad.And they just don't care. Don't stop here. Just carry on with your Sunday drive. Even the next garage shop will offer a better experience.. A... More

Waited and hour to be attended....40 minutes for food to be served...waitron could not take the order properly....food was greasy tasteless and not fresh...sparkling water served without a glass. Waited 20 minutes for bill to come thru eventhough we begged for it 3 times. A disaster....only saved by its location and nice weather to be out. Management change required urgently...

I sat for 40 minutes without being approached by a single staff member, cleared tables beside me, seated and served patrons around me but not a single word toward me. Save yourself the trouble and go elsewhere.

Although the surrounding was good I would not recommend this place. Toilets were terrible along with the food. A lot of the food on the menu was not available. Finally we ordered a chicken salad and they served raw chicken!!!!!!! The staff are friendly

I am still in shock about the degree of no service and the run down of such an icon like the constantia neck restaurant. So many tourist make a red bus change on that hill and stop and one would like the stop to be rememberd , but not for what is happening there now. It is run down, unfriendly... More
