Nice restaurant in Cape town! Downstairs and upstairs. Big open kitchen. Good variety of dishes but not to much, so you don't get lost. I recommend the 3 little pigs! Super delicious! Don't forget dessert ...

Wow! What a wonderful experience! Dinner on a Saturday night turned out to be the best of our stay in South Africa. Our waitress was both knowledgeable and fun to discuss the different courses with, and we ended up going for the Beetroot Salad and...More

Savoy Cabbage is an old favourite and quality standards are rigorously sustained. The restaurant - located on the edge of Cape Town CBD, has lots of 'old Cape' character in their building- which has almost gone from the new and strident city. Great cooking, service,...More

This was a great recommendation. Quirky warehouse style restaurant with great vegetarian options. The tomato tart, simple yet perfectly executed is a must. Excellent, knowledgable staff and great atmosphere

Description
Enjoy creative contemporary cooking in a visually exciting venue. With its historic Table Mountain stone and old brick that dates back to the 18th century, architect Leon Saven's design is complemented by glass, concrete and exposed ducting. Cabbage motif chandeliers and salt dishes, fine table appointments and impeccable service reflect outstanding attention to detail. The menu alters daily, using the freshest local produce and combines unusual flavours to excite the palate of the discerning diner. A boutique wine list which is very reasonably priced.
