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!

Nestled among other shops and restaurants this was a place our friend of over 30 years wanted us to eat. One gets a good feel for Constantia on the terrace here as it faces vineyards. Food was very good and service by Christelle was leisurely which made for a very relaxing lunch. As one would expect in this area, the... More

We enjoyed the food, service a bit slow. However the staff were friendly. Nice choice of main meals with a fair choice of daily specials. Value for money in a beautiful setting.

My brother introduced me to this restaurant, one of a group of three nestled in some spectacular scenery, while I was in Cape Town, and within two weeks I'd returned three times. It's the sort of restaurant I enjoy. The view is pretty special, the service good, the wait staff friendly, and it's a relaxed place to enjoy a meal.... More

The terrace is better than then the food. I had a starter of stuffed mushrooms that was absolutely not fresh. The food my husband had was okay but not great. The terrace is better than the food.

Tucked down the side of Haute Constantia, Pastis has a refreshing 'bistro' atmosphere - especially when sitting outside with candles in the evening with heaters overhead to ward off the Coll of a Cape Town evening.

Our South African friends chose Pastis for us all to meet for lunch & it was a good choice. Service and food were excellent, all four of us had different things and all enjoyed our meals very much. Would certainly recommend it if in the area.No view as such but the atmosphere eating outside under the canopy was compensation.
