Great every time

I have visited for both dinner (at the weekends) and breakfasts, and love it here. It can be very busy on weekends for brunch, but the service is still good and food always of great quality. My only complaint is that it is not open for dinner on weekdays!

If you haven't yet been here for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you really must. As a family run restaurant, it doesn't display the military perfection that we have come to expect from chain restaurants/coffee shops in the area, but it is filled with the charm and imperfection of a restaurant run by vivacious and charismatic "amateurs". The menu is an... More

Went here as found it via Trip Advisor, extremely good food with a lovely atmosphere and quirky furniture. Love the chairs, the decor and the wall art! I had poached eggs and smoked salmon which was perfect! Will definitely be back again for lunch & dinner some time soon Great service too!

This restaurant never ever fails. The chef is extraordinary and the staff just lovely. Lunch is so on curve I have tried the whole menu and cant wait to go back and start from the beginning again. Never have salads in particular been so amazing even in over priced restaurants anywhere in the world.

Decent enough Sunday lunchtime snack and child's meal. Friendly waitresses. Let down by odd policies that the owner seems to have imposed such as: no customer WiFi, no gratuities on card, no splitting bill for large parties (although this latter didn't affect us it has affected friends). Also toilet seat loose which made a bathroom trip more interesting than it... More

Nice menu, unusual choices, very authentic. Lovely service from female waitresses. Slightly annoying guy who got out his drill to try and fix some flickering lights! Not appropriate in the evening during dinner service! Nice food though, would return.

A wonderful family dinner at The Cape. An eclectic menu including ostrich, springbok and wild boar in lovely surroundings. Mark was excellent is describing the tastes and advising us on the exciting menu. All the food was excellent, beautifully presented, generous portions and perfectly cooked - I know that I am raving about it all, but really, I am so... More

The Cape is one of the best places for dinner in the area. It is only open in the evening on Friday and Saturday so make sure you book. The menu is innovative with some really interesting choices with a South African slant. Everything is beautifully cooked and presented. The atmosphere is relaxed but there is a real buzz about...

We went as a family and were disappointed to see only three items on the children's menu. Chose the picking plate which was overpriced for a piece of bread, a few carrots sticks, a handful of cheese and a slice of ham. Looks like it does well on cooked breakfast and cakes which we should have gone for. The decor... More
