A wonderful place, so good that we returned for dinner the day after our first one. Excellent food with top-notch ingredients. Especially the lamb (shank or rack, equally good) was a hit. Nice wine list. Very good service. A great team at work !

I had one of the best steaks of my life. The wine was absolutely perfect, from the local Stellenbosch wineries. The service was perfect; attentive without being... More

The food was amazing! The only thing I did not like was the robotic staff with very little personality. Was very difficult to engage conversation with them, the conversation was like speaking to a robot. Totally disinterested in what you had to say. ( more so with the manager)

We were pleased to find that Henri's hasn't changed much, under the new ownership as of 2014. The menu remains the same, with an additional page of new things to try. The atmosphere is nice, and bustling without being too loud. The service is, as usual, absolutely excellent, from the welcome to the final bill. And the food is as... More

My wife and I was referred to Henri's by Glen from the Helderberg Forest Lodge. The Restaurant is a short drive from the Lodge. What a pleasant surprise, we were welcomed, seated, advised on the specials and menu. We had our own wine, no issue to pay corkage, but it must be noted that Henri's doesn't charge any corkage, good... More
