“Good half price breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Visited Pastis this morning, Mar 17th after an absence of several months.

Things really have improved here with friendly & efficient staff who took our order promptly & delivered our food equally promptly. Our order was correct in every way. In fact my daughter, who is vegetarian asked for a vegetarian option "eggs Benedict" which wasn't on the Menu. The waiter suggested a mushroom or mushrooms instead of the bacon / ham / smoked salmon options on the menu. It duly arrived, beautifully presented & I'm sure it must have tasted as good as it looked because there wasn't a morsel left.

Pastis offers a half price breakfast every day until 11.00 & until 10.00 at weekends.

The situation on the road to Groot Constantia is quite beautiful as well as convenient. With it's vines & pergola it is very nice just to sit & "chill" at Pastis whether over a coffee, tea or glass of wine.

The outside area is dog friendly.

Unfortunately the restaurant doesn't offer WiFi. In fact Internet connections in this whole area are a bit "hit & miss" due to the topography of the area but the ambience & surrounding scenery soon dispels the frustration of loosing connectivity.

You won't be disappointed by a visit to Pastis......

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We had prawn tails followed by parma ham and melon. Sitting outside on a perfect day, the service was attentive and excellent, the food delicious and the value outstanding. Pastis is under relatively new management and it shows. Well done to all - the Mount Nelson could take some tips in quality and service from Pastis

This bistro is set in the Constantia wine area and is full of charme and very pleasant. My food was the beetroot, citrus, goat cheese salad and it was very tasty.
