We had lunch. My wife had the smoked chicken salad and I had the prego roll, egg and chips. With the exception of the chips the food was very good (the chips were at best average).The service was friendly and efficient. Will visit again, mainly due to the lovely setting and view.

We visited the Kistenbosch gardens and had lunch at the Rhodes Memorial Restaurant and Tea Garden to avoid the large groups of visitors. We were seated outside under the pine trees. Nice venue with spectacular views of the Table Bay and the Cape flats. Service is good and efficient, the food is excellent ( we tried the calimari steak )... More

We were visiting CT to support my daughter on a sports tour and chose this venue to celebrate her success and the end of the tournament. Outstanding view (not looking onto a car park like many Jhb restaurants), very efficient service, good selection of specials. My fillet of hake and mash was superb, daughters steak burger was above average, wife's... More

We were greated so warmly and a charming lady quickly assisted in settling everyone comfortably in their seats albeit without backs ,they brought soft... More

The potato chips were also no to the standard of a restaurant of note. Avoid the prego steak roll - and you will... More

Our large group of 7 enjoyed brunch at Rhodes Memorial a week ago. Although the weather wasn't great we could sit outside. The service was good, attentive and prompt. The outside furniture is mostly sturdy bench seating. There is a large menu so offered something for everyone in the way of brunch options, at fairly reasonable prices. The renovated kids... More

Clinging to the side of Table Mountain is a tea garden, nestling among the ancient pine trees is a delightful tea garden/restaurant. The staff are exceptional helpful and make you feel comfortable. The menu is extensive and include some traditional South African specialists. The grounds are child and dog friendly. The views over the city and the harbor are really... More

Had fresh fruit with yoghurt and muesli... It was fine... Admittedly a hard dish to mess up. Nothing to complain about
