Description: A gently converted colonial building with a green and white brookie lace veranda sets a different mood in the latest addition to the 95 Collection. Here diners can opt for inside or outside, have a view towards a garden planted to the kitchen and a sense of home added to their experience. The menu offers the classic dishes one has come to expect from 95, complimented by traditional and rare north Italian specialties. This is what the Southern Suburbs needed. WE ARE OPEN FOR LUNCH:MONDAY TO SUTURDAY FROM 12 AM TO 3PM DINNER: MONDAY TO SATURDAY FROM 6 PM TO 10 PM CLOSE SUNDAY LUNCH AND DINNER

5 people ate at 95 at Parks in Constantia. The staff were pleasant and helpful. And the surroundings in an old traditional cape house were delightful. Sadly the service and food were really substandard. We waited 45 minutes for our mains course to arrive. The fillet steak came without the two sauces (bearnaise and green pepper). We had to go to the kitchen to alert the staff and get the sauces. The dish was OK but nothing special. The Tuna requested blue (rare) was medium and only manners stopped our guest from sending it back. We arrived at 8 pm and by the time our meal was finished (no dessert) wee were the only table in an empty restaurant! Half the time was spent waiting for our food. There are far better places to eat in CT at those sort of prices.

A select few very expensive restaurants provide an eye-wateringly expensive taster's menu that tends to push boundaries of taste and ingredient combinations.

95 at Parks have a refreshingly different approach. Their taster's menu is a quarter of the typical price and represents a range of 6 traditional, but well executed Italian dishes for a "taste of Italy". It is an excellent idea. For an affordable price, one can have a mini feast. Each dish was well presented, extremely tasty and the right size for a 6-course meal

Those in our party that did not choose the taster's menu had a very good meal. Those of us that did, experienced something exceptional. The service was pleasant, attentive and unobtrusive -- as it should be. The panels of AstroTurf on the walls are a whimsical touch, but don't detract.

The maximum rating is not because this is one of the best restaurants in Cape Town, but because it is so much better than one would expect of a good restaurant. If you visit and don't choose their taster's menu, you are depriving yourself of something special.

We love the fiorentina at 95 at Parks and order it every time. It is the best meat in Cape Town by a mile! Love it! Service is always excellent and welcoming.
