With a spectacular view of Table Mntn and a broad vista of Cape Town, you’d think they couldn’t go wrong. They don’t!

Superb skills in the kitchen. I think they could improve on the plating some which were buried the main attraction. For instance, the kudu loin (perfectly medium rare) should not be under various garnishes and vegetables. Let it sing on its own. Same with gorgeous cob - don’t bury it…

But that’s by the way. Definitely Recommended after my first visit. I’m local so I’ll be back.

De Grendel was recommended to me by a local friend, so we took a taxi there for lunch one sunny Saturday. Firstly, its not far from Cape Town, and secondly the view back to Table Mountain is wonderful. There were 5 of us and we had the 3 course lunch - all of it completely devine. I like the De Grendel wines so we had a bit of a private wine tasting - I think we had 5 different wines over lunch. Definitely needed the taxi back into town. All in all a wonderful lunch with tip-top service and a very reasonable bill at the end. I would 100% go back again. It was full so book ahead.

Had a three courses meal at the restaurant and found a fly in the bottle of merlot.we had ordered the wine had been left with the top off during the meal which the waiter took to one side during our meal, when pointing this out to the waiter he apologised and bought a new bottle in carrying case as we had finished the meal we took the wine home, the next day opened the box they had put a second hand opened bottle in new carrying box not knowing where the wine had been poured it away I am disgussted and disappointed they were so deceitful,
