You get what you pay for - nothing more and nothing less. A South African breakfast will set you back R75 - and it's good - but nothing that makes it stand out as a great breakfast. Friendly staff, although not too many of them around. Not wheelchair friendly as the toilets are down the dungeons. Outside and inside sections... More

Eating outside even of a cool evening with the heaters and fires burning with the addition of Jenny and the Jameses playing, makes for a magical experience. The food is always on point with attentive service and generous portions. The major attraction though is the combination of fine restaurant and exceptional music,

With such mixed reviews and warnings from friends I was rather apprehensive in trying Pastis but I wanted a restaurant with an outdoor area and something for everyone on the menu for a special celebration lunch. We certainly won't be rushing back! The service was slow and very haphazard. It took awhile from drinks to arrive and even longer for... More

Pastis is an informal little bit of heaven in Constantia. Nothing pretentious, just good food, lovely wines with friendly happy service tucked away in a corner of Constantia that is close enough to the Constantia shopping mall to be really convenient whilst sufficiently distant to be well away from the car parks and crowds. In the summer or on a... More

Went with my wife, on a brief escapade of a busy week, last minute decision.... Let's try Pastis... Wine list very appealing, menu interesting, restaurant let down, in serious need of a refurb, service was fine 2 1/2 on duty( waiters) not very busy but initial service took a bit long since our server was almost due on her pregnancy...

We go to Pastis fairly regularly but less so since they took their divine lemon tart off the menu! I can highly recommend their delicious Pepper Steak and friends have drooled over the mussels. Service is good and the ambience is fabulous.

Back to Pastis again, one of many visits over the years. Nice relaxed & comfortable ambience. Food and wine as good as ever. Staff very efficient and friendly. No doubt we will be back again on our next SA holiday!
