Cabbage savoy was a recommendation by a friend. Cabbage although a small establishment, exceeded my expectation after having dine at several waterfront restaurants. Great place to dine if you like game. Had the Eland which is found in West and South Africa while my friend had the Duck. Done to succulent and perfection. The food is bit salty but then... More

Reviewing 2 weeks after visiting and apart from lamb chops which were very good we are struggling. Outstanding mentions go to staff, wine recommendations for the lamb were spot on - even giving us a glass that wasn't on the 'by the glass' menu. Ah yes, it's coming back, I had pork 2 or 3 ways, had to send the... More

I'd been looking forward to my first trip to Savoy Cabbage for months after a friend and regular visitor to the place booked for NYE meal. We had a table for 6, in a great location upstairs in the restaurant and paid in advanced for the set menu. The set menu for the evening failed to live up to expectation,... More

Went with a group of friends, ambience was buzzing but overall the food was a let down. I enjoyed the tomato tart and the beef tartar but it didn't blow my mind. Also found the kingklip main and the fillet very bland. We enjoyed the setting, but won't be returning as the food is a massive let down.

This was our second time at the Savoy Cabbage. It is still wonderful. We had a great meal here and the wine and service were equally great. This is a must visit for dinner.

We have been many times to the Savoy Cabbage for lunch and dinner and decided to go there for New Year's eve dinner as we have had so many great meals there. The New Year's eve experience certainly did not disappoint! We were greeted with delicious Champagne cocktails and canapes followed by a 7 course feast of innovative fine food.... More

Perhaps it's being a bit hard judging a restaurant solely on its new year's eve fixed-price menu offering, but after booking months in advance, and with the payment for the food also being taken in advance, we wanted to be wowed with exceptional food. We thought that the R2750 for the two of us might include wine as well as... More

It was just ok. We tried the following dishes - sugar cured zebra - three cheese brûlée - beef tartar - lamb rack - eland The food was average, with the game meat well prepared, it didn't taste game at all. Creme brûlée was soft and soggy, not much texture. Beef tartar could have the meat chopper my finely. Lamb... More

We are both vegetarian and the menu offered a good selection of food for us. The meal was excellent , the service first class and the interior of the restaurant quirky and relaxing .

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.
