Description: Enjoy creative contemporary cooking in a visually exciting venue. With its historic Table Mountain stone and old brick that dates back to the 18th century, architect Leon Saven's design is complemented by glass, concrete and exposed ducting. Cabbage motif chandeliers and salt dishes, fine table appointments and impeccable service reflect outstanding attention to detail. The menu alters daily, using the freshest local produce and combines unusual flavours to excite the palate of the discerning diner. A boutique wine list which is very reasonably priced.

Reviewed 25 February 2017

Savoy Cabbage is locztd between the City Bowl and the Bo-kaap. It offers great food and service, a little bit on the expensive side, but has a great atmosphere.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 21 February 2017

We enjoyed a delicious dinner in this lovely restaurant. The whole experience was excellent and enhanced by our first rate waiter, Michael (I think). He guided us throughthe menu, offered helpful suggestions and brought us tastes of wines before we ordered a bottle, Every course was first rate. The tomato tart was fabulous as was my husbands almond and grape gazpacho....the perfect way to sttart. Our main courses were equally good and we couldn't resist a desert at the end. Presentation was fantastic too. It was our best meal of this week long visit to Cape Town.

“Great food, friendly staff, beautiful venue”
Reviewed 20 February 2017

We made a spontaneous reservation and were absolutely amazed! First of all the staff is super nice, friendly and attentive! The interior is beautiful and the whole restaurant has a very nice atmosphere (modern, rustic and chic). Oh yes....and the food is absolutely delicious! Thanks for a lovely evening!

“Enjoyed our Meal”
Reviewed 16 February 2017

Nice place with good service. The food was nice if not spectacular. My wife had the tomato tart to start with, which she said lacked flavour, my cheese souffle was lovely. Mains she had the fish main course which looked and tasted superb, and was my Eland. We finished with both having the sorbet which was nice. It was a pleasant place to visit

“Second visit did not disappoint”
Reviewed 15 February 2017

We enjoyed dinner here last year and booked ahead to secure a table again this year. The quality of food and service is outstanding. We took friends with us this year and they were very impressed.
