This is an attractive and well appointed restaurant. Excellent service and great wine selection. Am not a fan of buffet dining but a friend had recommended it. The food was nice, but not spectacular. Food was good value but wine was quite pricey. Not particularly...vegetarian friendly. If there were vegetarian options they weren’t promoted. Menu was also a bit limited. But we had a nice time.More

My favourite Sunday venue. I do not like or do buffets …. This is different … sensational with roast selection of highest quality. A La carte menu in the week is top draw and slightly adventurous. I made a mistake with my booking yesterday (Mothers...Day) but Quentin calmly and kindly assisted by arranging my wife and I a table. Ambiance and setting is so special with impeccable service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED on the Constantia Neq/Hout Bay border.More

After multiple recommendations we chose to have our wedding at Quentin at Oakhurst in December 2021 and we couldn’t fault a single thing. The venue is stunning, the food is absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable. Highly highly recommend and will certainly be back!...Thank you to Quentin and team for the most memorable nightMore

The place is unique. The food is excellent with superb cuisine. The oxtail and springbok mains were superb. Congrats Kitchen ! The Tuna Carpaccio starter however was sliced far too thickly. Good waitrons. Nice atmosphere. It was missing something, however I can't putt my finger...on it so it's 5 stars from me and it would be small-minded to reduce it to 4 because of the Tuna Carpaccio.More

A special thank you to Quentin and all the staff for spoiling us and my mom for her 80th Birthday. The venue is superb and the food absolutely exceptional. A large variety of exquisite food, catering for all palates and tastes. An added plus of...a Hungarian Trio entertaining the guests with the most beautiful live music. Thank you, it was a stunning afternoon.More

Without doubt the culinary highlight of our holiday in the Western Cape. Unpretentious, with a focus on high quality ingredients, perfectly cooked and presented, combined into a very appealing menu. The waiting staff were friendly, knowledgeable and eager to be of service. So nice to...see our host making time in what was clearly a busy kitchen to walk the floor to chat with diners. Only regret is that after visiting the area frequently over many years it’s a restaurant that we have only just discovered. Made up for this with multiple visits this time!More

When deciding where to go for Valentine's dinner we knew Quentin would go all out and make the evening and food very special. He did not disappoint. The restaurant looked amazing and the menu was superb. The Hungarian Trio live music added to the ambience....We were welcomed with a glass of champagne, had a delectable amuse bouche of two oysters, choice of an asparagus or chestnut salad, I had the vichyssoise soup and my husband had the game fish carpaccio, followed by a lobster/scallop dish and calvinia lamb. The dessert was chocolate ganache and ice cream. All was excellent.More

While Quentin’s has been our favourite treat in the Hout Bay valley for many years, tonight’s Valentines experience served to reinforce our view. He remains our #1.

First class dining experience, once again. Great selection of food, excellent service. The front of house, come sommelier was super friendly, knowledgeable and non-pushy. My partner and I both had the starter from the specials - 90 second mussels in creamy white wine and garlic...sauce. The home made bread was out of this world. We both had the springbok, medium rare, which was delicious and perfectly cooked. A star was dropped only because the stuffed cabbage that came with main was quite heavily seasoned with fennel seeds, which are not at all to my taste - I’d like to have been able to taste the produce itself. No biggie and we’ll definitely come back when next in CT.More
