Each visit to Henri's is a pleasure. You must try the vodka martinis - straight up with olives as a pre-dinner drink. Best martinis outside of Vegas! Great to be able to choose which size of steak & sauce/ butter accompaniment. The garlic & chilli butter is excellent. Fantastic wine choice & a really lovely venue. Great service & great... More

We visited Henris after a break of a couple of years. It is now under new ownership, and Pierre the owner was very welcoming. The food was particularly good, the best kingklip we have had for a while. The décor was good, with some lovely black and white pictures. We particularly liked the little room at the side with just... More

Went to Henri's to celebrate my graduation (second time we've been here). Everyone had a great time. We had a vast range of dishes - pizza bread, steak, rabbit pasta, linefish, pork fillet and desserts- everything looked and tasted delicious. Will be back soon.

What a dissaster....feeling like criminals because we just show up without booking after the owner very sarcastic greeting.Should have walked away there and then. Sit down on a very busy side of the restaurant supposed paying a penalty for not booking.Waiter told us about the special lamb neck and I decided i will have it......waited 45 minutes for the food...

Rotten Parma ham, being told that it is supposed to taste that way. There is no other word to describe the smell and taste of the ham. I personally can't believe that the manager could not just have said we made an mistake but no the ham is fine he said. There is a difference between a salty taste and... More

My husband and I recently hosted our wedding-reception at Henri's, and to say that they were exceptional would be an understatement! Pierre and his staff were so helpful in the set-up of the decor and the 're-vamping' of their entire courtyard, we had no trouble at all in getting everything ready for the evening. Henri's staff was always willing to... More

After house hunting for two solid days in the area, we were weary and in need of a great meal and lots of good wine... and that's exactly what we received. We look forward to moving to Somerset West where we will no doubt enjoy many more lovely meals at Henri's. Thank you!

I was looking forward to dinner at Henris this evening as I have not been for over a year. Sadly the service was disappointing so the experience did not make me want to rush back. 3 of us booked for 7 pm so we were fairly early. The restaurant filled up and it was clearly a busy evening and the... More
