“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Beautiful food. So creative and innovative. It was really fun to share several small dishes. Great service. Lovely setting. Probably the best dinner in Cape Town!

“King Cheyene ! Shhhhhhhh.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Now our third visit. Not sure how to say what we did not like. It was again Hout Bay's best kept secret. Keep it coming.

“One of Our Best Meals in 2014...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

My wife and I visited Cheyne's in Hout Bay and had arguably our very best meals of 2014 there a few nights ago. The food was exceptional, the service was warm and attentive (not at all overbearing). The atmosphere just perfect with a blazing fire, subtle lighting and great background music to to complete the experience. It's clear that owner and Chef Cheyne has done a good deal of traveling around the world and worked in some the fine restaurants. He has invaluable experience cooking abroad and this is clearly reflected on each and every plate that leaves his kitchen. Dishes are small (served tapas style) and great value. Flavours and presentation were a treat. The restaurant itself is located in an old house in the middle of Hout Bay, with tables scattered throughout the various rooms. It is small, intimate and has great artwork. We will no doubt return to what I am sure will become a favourite Cape Town eatery. Would recommend Cheyne's to any local foodie or out of town visitor. Chef Cheyne get's it just right.

“Words can't express....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I'll admit... I'm a total foodie and eat out way more than I should...! Cheynes is BY FAR my absolute favourite restaurant in Cape Town. The food somewhat blows my mind each and every time and this is even on my 6th visit! Superb staff and service, fabulous wine and bubbly/ champagne selection and of course.... Fantastic food!!

I HIGHLY recommend all Capetonians to pay this exquisite restaurant a visit! I promise there won't be any disappointments!

An epitome of food heaven! Thank you to Cheyne and his amazing team
