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.

“First amongst equals”
Reviewed 7 March 2017

Slightly more formal than some CT restaurants , but horses for courses. If you want to dress up to eat ,there is nothing better in the city.Went twice and each time a great pleasure. The waiters really are wonderful. They have clearly been tutored well by Caroline and add to the experience. Interesting menu with SA influence. We took the liberty to recommend the Savoy Cabbage( always a risky business) to two very seasoned elderly travelers who were staying at our hotel.We were informed that it was their best meal whilst staying in Cape Town We look forward to returning next year.

“high quality yet again!”
Reviewed 7 March 2017

As occasional visitors to Cape Town it was good to revisit one of our favourites. This restaurant has a great atmosphere in an historic building which at one time was on the waterfront. The menu was varied and accommodated the vegetarians in our party. The wine list selections were well balanced and well priced and the service first class.
To top our evening, the food was absolutely lovely and the cheese souffle !!!!!!!!!!

“Outstanding Gaspacho!”
Reviewed 3 March 2017

Stylish and informal ambience, short but inventive menu. The Gaspacho soup could be the best I ever had, and the blesbok entree was also outstanding. This was the best meal we had in Cape Town.

“One of Cape Town's top restaurants”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 via mobile

We celebrated my husbands birthday at this wonderful restaurant. SADLY it's not mentioned in S.A.'s top ten restaurants. The food was excellent, prepared to perfection accompanied by great service. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.
