This is flagged as Alphens gourmet restaurant. I would say it's rather an upmarket, but 'normal' restaurant. Quite good food, great service.

We celebrated a very special birthday at the 5 Rooms Restaurant at the Alphen Hotel with our family. We started in the elegant, viby bar with welcome drinks and the live jazz band before secreting ourselves away to the plush, eclectic splendor of our own Private Dining Room. We enjoyed a delicious beautifully presented three course meal accompanied with excellent... More

We recently visited the Five Rooms Restaurant at the Alphen Hotel, Constatntia for a birthday celebratory lunch on a Sunday. We entered the very eclectic yet tastefully decorated building via the main entrance, to be led into one of 5 rooms, which comprise this fine dining establishment. We had been looking forward to this occasion for some time, having heard... More

We had drinks and dinner with friends. Excellent Mojito to start the night with and then I tried the Springbok and Kudu lion (incredible good) with some Oysters as starter (not the best but very good). I highly recommend this place, a must if you are in Constantia.

I hosted an office event at the restaurant with 15 people attending. We were given the biggest and most special room. The food and the wine was excellent, The service was impeccable. Needless to say not one person in the group had anything bad to say about he experience. It was simply brilliant.

The setting is timeless and beautiful with chesterfield couches and old style chandeliers in an old Victorian building... Service was faultless as last time (except part of the uniform still being denims and sneakers like in a village pub) Unfortunately the food did not improve since our last visit, I ordered the baby chicken which was tasteless (without any flavor...

Thank you for the review. We can only apologise for the disappointment you experience with regards to your meal. Upon discussion with our Chef, he explained that the chicken had been prepared in a way that should it not be followed exactly, the flavour would be compromised. We have since changed the cooking method to guarantee perfection. Last year we... More

The restaurant is actually made up of 5 rooms, but that does not detract from the ambience and the stunning service. The band was excellent, too. The staff come from many corners of Africa and all have a wonderful table-side manner. There is a feeling that they own the restaurant - and that shows in their stunning service and customer...

Also disappointed with the food. Supposed to be a special birthday meal and everything seemed great until the food arrived. 5 of us had sirloin and although we were expecting medium rare they were all well done. The manager was very kind to replace two of them quite quickly when I complained. But when there are only two elements on... More
