Food, flair, flavour at Harveys . . . A "sundowner" is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. There are only a few places in Cape Town where one can do that in style and the terrace of Harveys restaurant at the Winchester Mansions hotel is one of them. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the If you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers. We have joined forces with local and international artists and some of the best wine estates in the Cape for you to enjoy a great evening. For those special evenings with the girls join us for our Ladies' Night every Wednesday.
