Drinks and a snack proved a time-consuming affair with dreadful service, made bearable only by the lovely view on the terrace of the bar at Winchester Mansions. Our server for the table of four, Talent, only had time for visitors with an accent, leaving locals...More

Been a few times here and its not my favourite. The vibe is pretentious, ranging from overweight posh tourists and trendy slick-haired locals. Food is not great. Drinks are pricey. Service is rubbish. I'd strongly recommend an alternative spot to visit. Wonderful view if you...More

We had an early dinner at Harveys while the sun was setting over the ocean. Very friendly service and good food. We had the rib-eye steak which was a big portion and very tasty....rare to perfection :)

My parents and I had cocktails every afternoon and loved the views, vibe and friendly staff. It seems like a lot of Capetonians visit this hotspot for after work chats. The only downside is that the whole area is a smoking area.

Have a glass of something and watch the sun go down on the open terrace. It can be busy at this time of the evening. They also have a good snack menu if no need fuel.

Food, flair, flavour at Harveys . . . A "sundowner" is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. There are only a few places in Cape Town where one can do that in style and the terrace of Harveys restaurant at the Winchester Mansions hotel is one of them. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the If you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers. We have joined forces with local and international artists and some of the best wine estates in the Cape for you to enjoy a great evening. For those special evenings with the girls join us for our Ladies' Night every Wednesday.
