Kids really enjoyed the play area. The view is amazing and it has a great atmosphere. I had the Tamatie bredie, it had just the home-made flavour I was looking for! We also ordered the platter with snoek paté and pickle fish really good. Waiter was on point!

The restaurant occupies one of the best locations in Cape Town in terms of a view. It should by rights offer service that matches location but it doesn't and in the past we have also experienced the same so our experience would appear to be ops normal. We were just two. We ordered a light meal and coffees. My meal... More

On the spur of the moment we decided to try this restaurant for a Sunday lunch. We sat outside on a perfect Cape winter day with a perfect view over Cape Town and surroundings. Ordered chicken curry and tomato bredie. Delicious!!! Very friendly and helpful staff.

We stopped for a quick lunch here, after visiting the Kristenbosch botanical garden. Enjoyed the cool surrounding and great view of Cape town. The grilled sandwiches and ostrich steak were delicious, so were the drinks.

We ordered a beef stroganoff & 2 scones & jam. The beef stroganoff looked disgusting and resulted in an upset stomach 1/2 hour later. the scones were not even deserving of the name. The prices were also way above norm. Considering the location at a prime tourist spot this place is doubly disgusting. They should be booted out and someone... More

Decided to visit for a Cape Town 'landmark' lunch / tea ~ what a shocking food experience! The order of 'scones' delivered were heavy solid masses of half raw dough - no where near a scone mixture/recipe~the cream was not fresh let alone 'real' ~ the beef stroganoff was absolutely gross ~ the mash potato was like glue ~ my...

Took a couple from the States to the Rhodes Memorial Restaurant for tea - what a disappointment. The waiter was friendly and helpful. When he came to take our order we asked which of the cakes and tarts listed on the menu had been freshly baked. He said none, but the scones were popular - so we all ordered these.... More

Very well located place near Rhodes Memorial. Nice view over the Cape Town and 20 meters from Table Mountain/Newlands Forest hiking trails. I often stop here for a drink (or sorbet) when doing trail running in the area. Waiters are kind, prices affordable (e.g. quite big portion of flapjacks R65, Cappucino R23, Sorbet R55), desserts (cakes) are really big. It... More

The restaurant is on the slopes of Table Mountain. There is a great view from here. It is a great place for breakfast, lunch and teas. The service is very friendly.
