Unbelievably good

Set in a beautifully maintained location, the restaurant is simple and elegant - minimalist in many ways, as if not to distract from the meal. We took the African Origins tasting menu with wine pairing, and it was superb. Every bite was delicious, bursting with flavours, contrasting and... read more

After a very disappointing visit at Myoga we gave The Greenhouse a chance and was well rewarded with great food with superb matching local wines and kind seevice. The only letdown was initially the very high sound level due to a very loud party combined with a undamped room without any textiles. After a while the sound level decreased and... More

Joshua, the Restaurant Manager, was as warm & attentive as always. He makes us feel so special & welcome & we visit only two or three times each February. I really can't fault the Greenhouse. This is a cuisine restaurant rather than a food restaurant & it really is sublime. Special mention: There was a Pre-Desert course that tasted like... More

Highly recommend! My husband and I came for dinner on our trip to Cape Town and truly enjoyed our experience at Greenhouse. The food was excellent, service was professional and views were welcoming and enjoyable. We enjoyed the tasting menu and everything that came out of the kitchen was delicious! I can't wait to go back.

When one experiences the best of the top restaurants, I feel the only thing that gives one restaurant a higher rating over another is consistency! A group of us had two experiences at Greenhouse, with unfortunately, the first being a comedy of errors due to changes in the menu, internet dying and accidents in the kitchen! However thanks to Peter... More

This was by far the best dining experience I have had in Cape Town over the past 6 months - and in that time I have dined in most of the top 5 restaurants in Cape Town. We had the Tasting Menu. Usually, I find with a Tasting Menu, there are one or two awesome dishes, and the rest of... More

This was our first time to the Greenhouse and we enjoyed a very memorable dining experience. Before we went to our table, we had a drink at the bar - it took the bartender quite a while to get four cocktails ready but they were well worth the wait. Our party of four and opted for the summer menu. Presentation,... More

My wife and I book for this restaurant back in September for our Christmas visit. We booked early since the restaurants in Cape Town get booked up early for the Christmas period and the restaurant came highly recommend by a friend of ours. The venue is delightful, albeit we visited it at night. We were very pleasantly greeted and they... More

After 3.5 weeks of holiday in South Africa and eating out every night(!), we wanted our last night in Cape Town to be special. This was not worth even the taxi fare. First, as a breastfeeding mother, who is extremely subtle anyway, being asked if I wanted to "do that somewhere else", as other tables were 'looking', I was extremely... More

We wanted somewhere special for a birthday dinner and found it at the Greenhouse. From the selection of homemade breads and butters through the 9 courses with wine it was perfection personified. The detail of every ingredient is well thought through and combined to produce some sublime dishes.
