GREAT food over here. On par with the best in Cape Town. Foodies can adventure to Savoy Cabbage safe in the knowledge the chef CARES about food. This on the other hand is not a trendy or a vibrant place. It's all about the food....More

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.
