we had a fabulous dinner by the fireplace at Indochine, really romantic and with amazing food. We are not fan of "asian cousine" but here we had an unforgetable meal. The main courses were awesome, wines as well, for sure one of the best "alternative" dinner experience we ever had. 100% suggested!

The dictionary doesn't have enough words to describe this estate and dining experience. Not our first visit, but somehow every time you drive in, you are completely speechless. One of the most spectacular settings in the world. Then you walk into the restaurant area, and once again have to close your mouth. By this time you won't mind simple food,... More

Attention to detail from the start until the end. Fabulous setting with a beautiful view over to Table Mountain. Be sure to enjoy a beautiful sunset. The food is an experience: a fusion of spices from the East and local products! The duck and the fillet main courses are great. Supplemented by exquisite local wines! Very attentive service.

A lot of money has been spent on this magnificent estate. The landscaping, food and service are all outstanding. We had lunch at Indochine on a beautiful winter day. Sitting on the terrace and enjoying some of the best Asian inspired dishes we have eaten. By sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their dream trips....

The most incredible meal we have had in a long time. The flavours were out of this world! My dad said you guys were better than Test Kitchen, and my mom said she was speechless, which is very rare, so good job on that. (Don't tell her I said that.)

Went there for our 3 year aniversiry. Service,wine and food was top class! Did not get much of the stunning view because of a very gloomy stormy day, but they still managed to create a cozy and warm atmosphere in the restaurant. I will definitely recommend Indochene for a romantic lunch or dinner. I had the pork belly to start... More

Basic but an exquisite oriental fusion menu. We very much enjoyed our starters Tom Yam Khaa and Goong and the main course with a Hoisin Quail and Tikka Baby Chicken. The chardonnay from the house did the rest. Excellent and modern seating in their modern decorated and arty lounge. Good service but be aware that the prices are rather high.... More
