I recently went there with friends for lunch and the food was utterly amazing. Everyone at the table stated how much they enjoyed the meals. The scenery is lovely and the shop selling everything berry -related was a real treat. Well priced and great value for money. A real gem.

Our table on the terrace looked onto the mountains. The weather was unbeatable, a lovely day. Everyone was happy with their meal, varying from scones to eggs Benedict. My vegetable wrap was tasty and more than enough. I was quite disappointed that I could not fit in a slice of the baked cheesecake as it is delicious. The store that... More

It is difficult to beat the setting overlooking a valley towards the mountain range. Boboti is a famous South African dish consisting of spiced meat baked with an egg based topping and is a speciality here, well worth trying. We are regular visitors and will be back for more!

I arrived in Cap Town on 8th December and friends took me to lunch at the Hillcrest Blueberry farm. All was perfect from the service lunch and quality. A delicious babotie and cheesecake with a lovely white chardonnay made my day. I strongly recommend.

Had a lovely mid-afternoon break with tea, scones and delicious jams - some of them exotic - at this charming cafe.

We were very disappointed in the service we got from Hillcrest we called for lunch and all ordered the meat and cheese platter. We waited over an hour, people who had arrived after us and ordered hot food were served, ate and left. We asked the staff if our food would be much longer and we still waited a further... More

A great view of the mountains and lovely berries. I would have liked a little more chicken on my salad though.

When you are from Namibia, this is a kind of paradise. All kind of berry available. The sandwiches were crispy and delicious, the ice with fresh berry as dessert, fantastic. The service was perfect and very friendly. All that with a nice view over the green valley. Also the chance to buy jam, special vinegar and frozen berry for taking... More

Words cannot describe my gratitude for your excellent service, stunning view and great food. I hosted my sisters baby shower on the upper terrace where we had Hillcrest's awesome high tea. I highly recommend Hillcrest's high tea menu everything was stunning. Beautifully presented. Special thanks to Betty, Dewald, Bevan, Fagon and Chantell. You all played a big role in making... More
