It is always difficult to get a table due to its popularity and since it has fantastic food & drink. It has a selection of Jungle Gym's and play areas for kids which is what makes it a major attraction.

Hi Felipe, Thank you for taking the time to review us. The park we border on is called Rocklands rd Park and is a public park - very few, if any, have illumination at night. Often guests bring along flashlights or headlamps for the kids...More

On the slopes of Vredehoek with Table Mountain's shadow on your back and the beautiful fenced public park Rocklands Rd Park on it's doorstep. Deer Park Cafe specialises in specials. Free range meats and Sassi - approved fish are part of the daily menu blackboard with a great selection of Vegetarian meals. Gluten free and Vegans are easily catered for. Our baker produces a variety of cakes while Kamili Coffee warms up the soul. Great for Breakfast with fresh juices and free range eggs, Lunch and early Dinner has the specials board and a nice but affordable selection of wine. The kids can indulge in Hazelnut hot chocolates and Las Paletas Ice lollies after they have finished their meal. An easy going, family -friendly neighbourhood restaurant where it is easy to become a regular :)
