5 of us went for dinner. The location is good but the dining room seriously lacks atmosphere, especially as there were few guests. The food was good as was the wine although the menu was unexciting. The service was adequate.

We ate at the Conservatory on three of the four nights on our recent stay at the Cellars hotel. We tried all of the main dishes between us and they were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Bobotie, the Cheese soufflé and the chocolate dessert.
