My girfriend and I decided to pay a visit to Roots on Human Rights Day. It was not planned but a spur of the moment thing. On arrival we were told that we should have made a reservation. I spoke to the young lady at reception who promptly accommodated us. We were shown to a beautiful rest area overlooking the... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful setting, albeit a bit of a drive. Very peaceful. Our table was on the veranda overlooking a pond. Decor is tasteful and not overpowering, ideally suited to the location. We had the set 4 course luncheon menu and were extremely impressed by the quality of the food.... More

The ambiance of the restaurant and the superior service were my lasting impressions of Roots restaurant. We enjoyed our special Constantia Glen wine dinner with a group of friends and adult children. The welcome drink on the outdoor patio was so relaxing at sunset, and I would love to go back during the day the next time we're in the... More

We booked a lunch hoping for a wonderful meal based on all the reviews we had seen , unfortunately the experience was totally ruined by the number of flies which were over every dish and table and floor. Management agreed that they had tried everything to solve the issue which I did not agree at all. The service was excellent... More

My hubby booked for our wedding anniversary so we were both expecting something special. The restaurant delivers set menus and having been to the likes of "The Cube" and "Taste Kitchen" we knew to expect exotic small courses with the unusual use of ingredients. "Roots" did not disappoint. Most of the food used is locally sourced so that freshness and... More
