We had lunch here (Pork Belly and Line Fish) with beer and a white wine. Both dishes were excellent and the service was wonderful. Such a tranquil setting in Cape Town while dining, tucked into a quiet neighborhood. Definitely worth the effort to find it.

Designer decor in a freshly restored very old building meant the great experience started before we even had a welcome drink. The cocktails were expertly made, and the cured trout starter delicately mouthwatering. We went for the,justifiably famous, steak and frites and the kingklip which...More

Great ambiance and staff tucked away quietly behind The Mount Nelson Hotel. Eclectically renovated and decorated to create a wonderfully colourful surrounding.

Had a great steak and very good starter. The ambience is old school cool, very nice bar vibe to grab a drink before the meal too. Service is friendly and sharp.

Have a cocktail at the bar first before settling down to a fantastic dinner. Great service and excellent food. Also great place to meet for drinks at the bar or on the veranda in summer.

Description
Frequented by people that you would want to know, the stately Leinster Hall has been brilliantly reimagined and repurposed as The Stack: With an opulent public bar and brasserie downstairs and a unique private members' club upstairs, it's the perfect place to get your swagger on. The fledgling idea of hotelier Nigel Pace and his designer wife, Sarah Ord, this one of a kind establishment is about to make the Kloof Street hood even cooler, if that is even vaguely imaginable. Between them, they have over 25 years of experience making people feel at home so you'd be foolish not to get in on the ground floor, so to speak.
