Big group family dinner

we are a group covering 3 generations and 11.5 people and the food was great and the wait staff very helpful. The best steak I had in South Africa.

Second visit and even a better experience. Pierre Vosloo and his team really are pulling out all the stops. I travel a lot and eat out a lot and this was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. If you are in this part of the world this is a must activity.

I have been to Henris Restaurant twice. Excellent Service, food was better the first time, but we still had a lovely evening when we went the second time. Three of us had the Cob on the second visit, it was nice, but not outstanding. Small, quite tasteless serving of fish, served on mash potato. One person had Eland Pie, which... More

Very interesting menu with some unusual dishes. A touch of the Orient here and there but mainly traditional cooking.I had rabbit which was just superb. We took our own wine and there was no corkage ,a fantastic bonus. The owner is around all the time and fully involved in service which is also unusual. Our service was just perfect,with warmth...

The owner checked in on us regularly which was nice. Now for the food - a very interesting varied menu. We had duck liver parfait starters - a visual delight, tastes... More

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

Highly recommended. This place is excellent — from the starters to the desserts. And it's a must visit place for you if you're visiting South Africa or just live here and want to visit a superb restaurant once in a while. We stopped in for a family visit — a party of three. One ordered the 600 kg sirloin, the... More
