My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful evening at Chefs Warehouse for our "date night" The staff are lovely, so friendly and welcoming and the food... WOW! An absolute taste sensation with every bite. We had the Tapas for 2. Beautiful food and outstanding presentation....My favorite was definitely the Parmesan Risotto, one of the best dishes I have tasted in my life. Their dessert platter for 2 was so delicious and we finished off with a non alcoholic coconut and litchi cocktail. Well done to your increadibly talented chefs and amazing team of staff.More

We went to the Chefs warehouse with a 7.30pm booking on the 28th November. there were 7 people in my party. the food is good but at 9.30 as we were the last sitting and barely received our desert they had started packing away and...clearing up. they then had a meeting in the restaurant to discuss the day etc. I have taken many people there over the past few years and was disappointed that you pay a lot for the meal but the experience not good at all. I suggest you avoid this restaurant at present. Curfew is only 12.00 not 9.00 or 9.30 at latest!More

Definitely the best flavors you will experience in the world! The views are only an extra sensory experience.

Brilliant food and service OLD REVIEW We have eaten twice before at this branch - as well as 3 times in their central Cape Town (Bree Street) and twice in Fransschoek - so you might deduce that we like the format! Our favourite is the...Constantia restaurant, lovely views over the vineyards and Cape Town's city lights at night. The menu is a fixed selection of tapas plates for two - although the term "tapas" doesn't do it justice. Think of small tasting plates and you get the idea. Service is immaculate and the food is just brilliant, great flavour combinations etc. Wines aren't too expensive. Total bill R1,771 without tip - expensive but great for a special occasion.More

Had a lovely lunch here in January. Delicious dinner in March. Here you get delicious food at a decent price. As soon as the world starts turning again, we would like to come back.

This was the second time that I had eaten at this restaurant, the first time July 2019. It was an amazing experience the first time and the second time even better. The quality, selection and presentation of the meal is of an incredible standard and...the service just right. All this for the price of a meal in an average restaurant in Europe. Fantastic.More

We have eaten some great food in South Africa but Chef’s warehouse takes it to a different level. Amazing setting, fabulous service and outstanding food. An evening we will always remember.

I felt that the set menu was spectacular. The combination of flavors and presentation were outstanding. The view, to top it off...over the vineyards and overlooking city lights...was perfect. I don't think a visit to Cape Town can be complete without a dinner here.

Perhaps few have told the Chef Emperor that he's Buck Naked. Apart from some delicious oysters (an extra to start) and the creme brûlée variant I ended with. I prefer not to be instructed in how to eat my meal nor in what order ....- For me 'killer views" do not make a restaurant nor does a kitchen brigade rise to greatness when it believes it has the right to force its customer into what to eat and in in what order. Perhaps we should have investigated further before simply accepting a third party suggestion the we should book a table.More

If you insist on a menu choice, this is not your place. But, the tapas offered for two were plentiful and also every one was great. Their menu changes so you get whatever is in season. The wine selection is superb and staff is knowledgeable.

they only serve the tapas menu. if you are two or more guests you are supposed to go for the whole (8 courses), if you are alone, you can go for 4 courses only. it’s definitely worth the whole journey

As per previous answer it is a tasting menu with a set price of around £60 (for two!). We had 9 "tapas" dishes served in three rounds of three. Everything, including the setting, was stunning!
