Description: A state of the art dining room and cutting-edge kitchen sets the scene at Greenhouse, where produce of the Constantia Valley and the region are presented as culinary creations in an intimate taste space. Here guests are invited on a multi-sensory journey of distinctly South African flavours and hospitality, as they savour and indulge in the delectable creations of Peter Tempelhoff and his team. Greenhouse stretches the boundaries of traditional South African cuisine, brings conceptual creations from the garden, veld and sea to the plate and shares local stories and culinary insights through the dining experience. Expect the unexpected... Greenhouse is where meals translate to memories.

We had the fixed course dinner with wine pairing. The ambiance, presentation, and food were divine. The only negative was the price - over $125 a person, which is scandalous in SA. I would return, but only on an expense account

Everything about this place is magic. From the intelligent and attentive wait staff to the mind blowing food and concepts, you cannot leave disappointed. I have done the tasting menu (with wine pairings) twice and I must say the second time was in fact better than the first!! Peter Templehoff and his team do an outstanding job. I cannot wait until my next visit!

We had a fantastic meal at Peter Tempelhoff's great restaurant. The Provenance menu, with its local twists was wonderful, each individual course was memorable in its own right. Each course comes with a detailed description and origin of the dish. The service was exemplary and the staff friendly, attentive and knowledgable. In all a really really great experience - well done!!

Awe provoking! Sophisticated, delicious, artsy, high level of culinary art! Absolutely fantastic service! They deserve a few of Michelin stars, but for some odd reason Michelin representatives to not travel to South Africa. Their loss!
Keep in mind that for dinner it is only a tasting menu of 9 courses. My recommendation is not to eat for a few days prior to the visit. My husband ordered also a wine pairing, well worth it to get familiar with a local vini culture, for me seven glasses of wine appeared excessive. Similar quality dining experience costs at least three times that in Europe or in USA. Highly recommend!
