“Good South African fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Friendly atmosphere with well executed meals. Generous portions and good quality produce used. It does feel like an evening out and the selection on the menu is varied.

“Pierre an amazing Host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Wow, is the word I would use. Service, food and affordability are all the words you can use to explain Henri's.

Chatting with owner Pierre who has years of ownership experience , you understand why Henris is the place to eat.

He is passionate and "on the floor at all times".

We had the duck liver and a trio for starters. Portions very generous. Mains was Thai Oxtail and the pulled lamb neck. Again generous and delicious.

They have a special for R180.00 per person for 3 course meal and a bottle of wine per couple. great value.

The restaurant was almost full on a Wednesday night... A sign we are not the only happy guests.

If you have not been. I suggest you pay Pierre and Henri's a visit soon.

“Cosy Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Henri's has a cosy, yet upmarket comfortable atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Enjoyed the three course winter special meal. Wonderful for special occasion or just meeting a friend and enjoying some good food.

“40th Birthday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday at Henri's on Saturday, 28 June.
We were 7 couples in total and were seated in a private room upstairs with our own balcony and bathroom.
We had the 'Winter Special' menu and evryone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. From the risotto and carpaccio starters, fishcakes and burger stack mains to the delicious creme brulee and berry meringue deserts, all was well prepared and well portioned.
Service from our waiters was great without being intrusive. The owner also popped in to see if all was ok.
Overall a great experience - we'll be back for more!
