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.

Last night we had our third dinner at the Greenhouse. The service is phenomenal, and the food is amazingly good. Small servings of exceptional, experimental food. We’ve eaten at Michelin star restaurants around the world and this consistently remains the best restaurant we’ve ever eaten...More

I’ll keep it brief. If you like a fascinating and imaginative tasting menu, superbly cooked, with good service, and good wine, please come here if in the area. You’ll have to book as it is justifiably popular with locals and tourists alike. We went twice...More
