Wow! If you want an eating 'experience' this is it! Be prepared to go on a journey of the senses. This is fine dining - not as flavourful and exquisite on the taste as La Colombe but still well worth a visit! Our tip would be to take an early table as the ten courses take 3hrs+ to get through...

Greenhouse at the Cellars-Hohenort Hotel in Constantia is amazing. As you enter the grounds you feel as if you are in a story book. The staff is prepared for your every wish. There was the occasional complaint of less desirable tables, but my thought is, you show up and get the best that they have that is available. The tasting... More

The tasting menu at the Greenhouse is definitely in the top three meals I've ever had and for passion and enthusiasm of staff and presentation, probably the best. For a start the Cellars Hohenhort is a beautiful location and worth a walk round the gardens before dinner. Once in the restaurant the concert begins. The staff (you are served by... More

Greenhouse's 10 course meal is something every foodie should experience! It is one of the top 10 restaurants in SA and wow... we could see why, every bite was filled with different textures, flavors and each dish had a story to be told! The setting is magical and the food is delightful! My favorite was of course the duck but... More

Went and had the Summer Menu with the wine paring. Food was inventive and well executed. The wine paring was well thought out and matched well. The best course was the langoustine. Umami is a focus and the dishes are not overcomplicated. Service was friendly and not at all stuffy. Overall a great food experience.

If you don't make it here while you are visiting Cape Town you are missing out! The setting, the food and the service make it a really great experience. We had the ten course tasting menu they serve over the Christmas/New Year "season" which was excellent

The Greenhouse restaurant, first visited just over 4 years ago, is responsible for me embarking on a relationship with TripAdvisor. At the time, I was so impressed with the food, ambience, presentation and service at this venue that I simply HAD to tell the world. I am pleased to say that little has changed over the interim years... The different... More

We opted for the food and wine pairing which was excellent. The service was fantastic and even though all the food were small, they had great detail and we could not eat any more at the end of our meal. I would suggest skipping the cocktails if you are doing the food and wine pairing as it is a lot... More

I'm not sure exactly what I expected and I was a little surprised that it was a set menu but we settled into the spirit of the evening and before long were enchanted! I would like to say that one should not be concerned about the size of each course which is served absolutely beautifully, as by the end of... More
