We invited our friends for dinner. We tried two other restaurants, but both where fully booked, so Cynthia's was our third choice. Having dined there previously, we expected a lot. When we arrived, we where virtually alone in the restaurant on a Saturday night, peak time. The service was friendly, but the lady presenting their specials was not totally sure... More

I am actually one that takes the time to give feedback about a restaurant, however Cynthia's didn't meet my standards. The restaurant wasn't busy, so I don't know why the service was so so slow. The waiters unprofessional, the variety was limited and the food wasn't very flavourful. The setting is quite lovely though.

Had to entertain guests upcountry and was recommended to Cynthias Indigo Moon. Nondescript building until you go inside! Great ambiance and very slick service. Enjoyed excellent lightly seared fresh salmon,absolutely brilliant. Guests commented on most succulent shoulder of lamb. Most impressive Diners Club Diamond wine list that most winelands restaurants will be envious of. Will return again and again

We came in a celebrating mood and left deflated. The waiters was very professional,at least one plus point. We ordered our starters,my chicken liver was bloody and totally raw.So we sent it back. WAITED IN ANTICIPATION FOR MAIN COURSE. Rump steak....what a disaster. It was a very bad cut,full of sinews,honestly could not cut the meat.It was so tough,I went... More

First time at Cynthia's. Great vibe, helpful waiters, meticulous service. Interesting and inspiring decor that sets the right tone without being overwhelming. The starters were more than adequate: calamari heads curry and a salad that was one of the specials of the day. The main course was magnificent with the deboned duck cooked perfectly. My partner did not like the... More

My wife and I recently had an anniversary dinner at the restaurant on recommendation. On booking we were asked if it was a special occasion. We were seated close to the fireplace. Despite it being in the thoroughfare for a great part of the restaurant, the staff brought in guests and passed by without us feeling disturbed. The patrons seem... More

Cynthia's has always been the restaurant to go to for a celebration. Dress up a bit, enjoy the food and atmosphere. I must admit I haven't been in years so it was a huge disappointment to find it doesn't measure up to my memories. The menu items was uninspiring and just old. Nothing new to delight the palate. No new... More

I took a client here for a "business" lunch. The setting is very upmarket. The food was absolutely superb and the service was great. The wine which the maitre 'd recommended was probably the best merlot I've ever had. Can't wait to go back. There are so many items on the menu I want to try, knowing they are going... More
