What a wonderful experience. We had the 8 course meal with wine as a belated birthday celebration. The food was outstanding. World class. The wine was amazing. But the service was even better. Remarkable. We will be back.

It was really a warm summers day. We had booked many months in advance. Our table was close to the road as you arrive and the builders who were carting heavy wheel barrows up and down the road. Which made us feel very uncomfortable. We...More

Come here for a Sundowner on a beautiful day. The view could not be better and the two pizzas with two bottles of wine deal cannot be beat. This meal, although one of the more casual meals we had, was the highlight of our trip....More

Steeped in over 300 years of history, the former guard house, tea room, hotel and the hunting lodge of Lord Charles Somerset has been elegantly restored with the charm and sophistication of the Grand Old Cape. The style of cuisine at The Roundhouse is uncomplicated, contemporary French, inspired by seasonal ingredients and paired with one of the finest boutique wine collections in South Africa.
