Food and ambience

Location and contact

A state of the art dining room and cutting-edge kitchen sets the scene at Greenhouse, where produce of the Constantia Valley and the region are presented as culinary creations in an intimate taste space. Here guests are invited on a multi-sensory journey of distinctly South African flavours and hospitality, as they savour and indulge in the delectable creations of Peter Tempelhoff and his team. Greenhouse stretches the boundaries of traditional South African cuisine, brings conceptual creations from the garden, veld and sea to the plate and shares local stories and culinary insights through the dining experience. Expect the unexpected... Greenhouse is where meals translate to memories.

Sadly the understated elegance with white table cloths with beautiful upholstered chairs and lamps ( little white rabbits on the windowsill) have been replaced with minimalistic black tables and lighting fit for a morning breakfast. The food...More

Although the dining room itself is pretty unassuming, the food & beverage is certainly not. Beautiful tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was beautifully explained, presented, & prepared. Theatre, precision & flavor. Absolutely delicious.
