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.

I have eaten at the Test Kitchen as well as the Greenhouse on different trips to Cape Town.
I can say both where unique dining experience.
The Test Kitchen was a far more interesting and intricate dining experience, but considered the difference in cost as well as the difficulty of getting reservations at the Test kitchen I would definitely eat at the Greenhouse, the food was excellent and the service impeccable.
I consider the Greenhouse a better value, but if you can go to both do so.

There is not much to say when everything is perfect. The food was outstanding! Fine dining to match the International
Standards, even prehaps better. Service was the best attentive service I have ever had..We had the Autumn Lunch tasting menu. .
My only complaint was the portions were more then tasting portions.....Just wanted to go back the next day and finish off.

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!
