Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the If you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers.

Very friendly and attentive service, good selection of dishes, very good food and wine. The layout of the restaurant is very relaxing - the tables are well spaced so that even when full it doesn't feel crowded. A good place to relax after a day of sight-seeing in this great city.

This bar is the perfect place to watch the sun set and grab a fabulous beer or wine and small plates. The setting is casual and cosy and the servers are very sweet. The fish and chips is to die for and "Jack Black" pilsner a real find.

We ate in this restaurant during our stay at the Winchester Mansions. We had a lovely window table. The food was excellent and presentation of the food was very pleasing to the eye. The service was good. Not at all rushed which is the way we like it.

If you are in Cape Town make a point of dining at Harveys at Winchester Mansions Hotel. The kitchen there is currently run by a hugely talented chef, Justin May, who is passionate about food and creates fabulous taste combinations for his meals. If you feel able to push the boat out go for a tasting menu with matched wines, I am certain you will not be disappointed.
The one downside is that Justin will not be staying at Harveys for much longer, feeling the need to move on and gain more experience. So, hurry before it is too late to experience something very special in dining.
