Henri’s restaurant is situated in an old mansion. The service was excellent and the atmosphere reasonably good. The meal, Filet and Oxtail was tasty but nothing special considering the fact that the restaurant competes with many in the area offering better presentation of the meal and stunning views for the same cost. Will we go back? A definite “no”.

Nice location and setting. The service was very slow, not only for the food, but they also wanted to take 10 minutes to bring the card machine when the place was almost emptied. The waiters were intrusive with this annoying habit to rock up when all glasses were full and we were both eating the course asking whether we were... More

Henri's is situated in a converted old house, complete with lovely verandah and garden and shady trees, so it is in a lovely setting. The one drawback, though, is that Henri's sits on a VERY busy corner with traffic lights - there is no getting away from the noise and the fumes. That said, we liked their 'light meals' lunch...

We relocated last year to Somerset West and Henri's was one of the first restaurants we tried - it has since become a "local" of ours and we absolutely love it. The steak is chalmar beef and is definitely the best we've had in the Cape. However, all the food is fantastic. The owner Pierre, is charming and friendly and... More

Although we were recommended Henri's, we were quite disappointed. There are way better restaurants in the neighborhood! The meat was tough and the prices too high for the quality of the food.

The food is excellent and the service is good. Teens enjoy it as it is more upmarket but not overly formal. Good selection on menu.
