This restaurant capture the essence of fine dining - excellently crafted courses, superb wine pairing and attentive, yet, unobtrusive service. We were particularly impressed with the wine selection for pairing with the courses served - not many get it right. You won’t go wrong!

The Greenhouse, in the Cellars Hohenort hotel, is surrounded by a wonderful garden and the terrace offers great views of the mountains. We were taken excellent care of by Pholoso, who was very attentive and funny and personal. The food was all very good, with...a special mention of the cheese soufflé.More

You arrive and immediately feel you are in the presence of luxurious nature and spoiled for choice regarding scenery, welcoming, front staff and knowledgeable waiters, but the best is the journey of a thousand FLAVOURS. The menu is carefully prepared and paired with the finest...wines. The chef creates masterful dishes, which I have seen copied by other establishments but does not, no... Cannot compare to Greenhouse experience. If you want to impress, with style, sophistication and luxury, Greenhouse gives a new meaning to these words. Hmm, feel like booking again, super excited!!! Ps don't forget to stop at the bar, there is a genius who creates just the right beverages to end your experience.More

First time visiting Greenhouse while in Cape Town, the experience was wonderful. Excellent quality, unique flavors and beautiful presentations. Zack was our server, he was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. Donavan provided us our wine pairings and explanations. All staff members were attentive. Highly recommend...coming here, it will not disappoint. Can’t wait to come back during my next visit.More

We were at the Green House, Constantia today to celebrate my fiances birthday. We had an absolutely fantastic tasting experience. We would recommend this place to everyone. Every plate was to our satisfaction. The staff were so professional and so lovely to interact with. They...really made you feel like royalty. From delivering your food to the table, to the explanations of each plate, the tidying up of the table after each meal and to even having a good laugh and conversation. We were really so comfortable and could just relax. We will definately be back soon. Thank you to Zack, Emile and Donovan for their excellent service and to Chef Farrel for the amazing food that we have received.More

The service at Greenhouse is absolutely outstanding without being stuffy or pretentious. The food is light, delicate, delicious, using a lot of proudly South African ingredients. It was an absolute treat from beginning to end and I look forward to returning!More

To combine all the flavours, aromas and overall dining experience at Greenhouse into words would not be possible. We have dined at all the top restaurants in Cape Town and to be able to give a fair review I will have to go back to...my previous reviews re-review them. To be honest I have not experience this type of food in South Africa yet. You will have to travel very far to experience the food that are served at Greenhouse. As part of restaurant week they served a 5 couse menu. Each dish has been carefully thought through and artistically prepared to supprise your sensory and visual senses. I personally think this is the best finedining restaurant in South Africa at the moment. Its definitely a restaurant to visit for any foody.More
