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 Chef Farrel Hirsch 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.

The service at Greenhouse is absolutely outstanding without being stuffy or pretentious. The food is light, delicate, delicious, using a lot of proudly South African ingredients. It was an absolute treat from beginning to end and I look forward to returning!

We had a Seven course meal and it was lovely. The service was impeccable, the overall ambiance was awesome as well as the friendly and knowledgeable staff. We particularly loved the South African innovation on their fine dining menu. A great place to enjoy SA fine dining + SA's best wines.

To combine all the flavours, aromas and overall dining experience at Greenhouse into words would not be possible.

We have dined at all the top restaurants in Cape Town and to be able to give a fair review I will have to go back to my previous reviews re-review them. To be honest I have not experience this type of food in South Africa yet. You will have to travel very far to experience the food that are served at Greenhouse.

As part of restaurant week they served a 5 couse menu. Each dish has been carefully thought through and artistically prepared to supprise your sensory and visual senses.

I personally think this is the best finedining restaurant in South Africa at the moment. Its definitely a restaurant to visit for any foody.

Good day 'Pieterindia',

What an absolutely beautiful review. Thank you so very much. Chef Farrel Hirsch and the team send their compliments to you. We are currently in the process of launching our December menu which will be an 8 course menu. We remain committed to bringing in fresh ideas to showcase the food culture within South Africa. We hope to host you again at the Greenhouse with an opportunity to introduce new dishes and food culture ideas.

We went to the Greenhouse for dinner for their tasting menu.
I seldom include the tasting wines as well as I prefer to choose the wine I prefer to compliment the meal.
That said, the food was amazing and presentation was outstanding.
If there is one slight complaint, it is that I felt that the fillet could definitely have had another portion.
Other than that, the food was more than adequate and the service superb.
