My wife and I wanted to eat somewhere beautiful in Cape Town and having come across Aubergine on Eventerprise.com I told her that I wanted to take her. Let me bullet point some of my thoughts: 1. A warm welcome. 2. A cheerful waitron. 3. An incredible bottle of wine. 4. A delicious complementary soup. 5. A mouthwatering main course.... More

The food, the service and the ambiance were great. The presentation of the food was attractive. The portions were an appropriate size. My ostrich was prepared and seasoned perfectly. I would highly recommend

Loved the atmosphere, the food and the amazing selection of delicious wines. I had the Springbok Venison which was quite literally one of the tastiest dishes I've ever had. Staff were great too and just a great over all experience.

Every bite and every dish is an eating experience and compares with the best in the world! It has one of the best winelists I have ever seen. Waiters are friendly and informative.

We know this restaurant since 18 years when we started going here. However it is very seldom that a Restaurant this caliber improves and improves with the years - but this one has done it. Amazing art by owner and Chef Harald Bresselschmidt! Last night I was on my own and tried the new Winter (South Africa) menu which is... More

Fine fine-dining in Cape Town. Tourists, enough with the Waterfront already! Try something a little different: world class fine dining and degustation, with wine pairing from a truely epic wine list. Numerous friendly staff. Not cheap for locals paying in local drinking vouchers(i.e. Rands!). Very highly recommended. Cappuchinos equally good!

Fine dining with option of wine pairing and if you do not want to try the tasting menu, you can order a la carte and still do wine pairing with wine by the glass. Food was great and well complimenting flavours rounded it off very well. The sommelier knew his wines very well and the pairing was spot-on. If you... More

The wine pairing was Glenelly Grand Vin. We had been to the vineyard early today and ha bought same. We mentioned that to the sommelier and... More
