I've been to Hillcrest a few times and my main reasons for going is their view and desserts. I had lunch there once which was quite average. Their desserts however is to die for. They serve the best scones in the world (Devonshire) with homemade jams and clotted cream, which is a must try. I also had one of their... More

Four of us had tea at Hillcrest today. I had the scones which were probably the best I have had in South Africa, and I have been trying for 12 years to find a really good one. And, of course, the Hillcrest jam to go with the scones was also very good. The creme brulee was declared delicious as was... More

A lovely place for breakfast / brunch / lunch. Great-tasting and good-looking food with clever use of the locally grown berries of many varieties. We love going there on a clear day as the view is gorgeous and it is really nice to sit outside. On a cold day, there is a cozy fire inside as well though

I visited with my son and had a most enjoyable experience. We requested to be seated outside to soak up the winter sun and admire the view ... Spectacular! We both ordered the Salmon Trout Lasagne and it was awesome. The flavours ... So tasty. I will easily go back again ...

My husband and I went for lunch and were seated by the host/manager on duty who gave us menus but then we were forgotten about and had to go look for someone to take our order. By this time we had decided on both food and drinks so we ordered both together. Both of our meals were very average I'm... More

If you want to sit down and enjoy the Cape Wine region, go here! It is on a hill, so you look down on a wine valley. The restuarant is famous for their berries and food made with these berries. I always have a scone, because then you can choose three jams!

Myself and a group of friends recently visited the Hillcrest with the intention on having a late morning brunch. Booking a table was fairly straight forward, and we were informed that breakfast was only served untill 11am (we made our booking for the same time), which is fairly standard practise. As we were not really there to specifically have breakfast,... More

Dropped by for a light meal and incredible view, which we certainly got. Being a gluten free eater I was wonderfully surprised by all the clearly marked gluten - free options available for me! I had the butternut and lentil salad which had just the right amount of bite for a sunny winter morning in the Cape. One of my... More

This restaurant has always been a must on any of our tours through the Cape. The view of the valley is breathtaking during summer and different in the winter, although still special. The food and pastries always good. The scones and tea are the way they should be. The staff were not under pressure but seemed a little quiet for... More
