Location and contact

Nestled in the fertile Constantia Valley lies a 300-year old wine estate, Groot Constantia and on it, Simon's restaurant, where we celebrate the riches of the Cape winelands by transforming the freshest ingredients into memorable meals. Revel in the Cape Town summer by dining al fresco on our terrace with panoramic views of the Groot Constantia vineyards. Savour the wines of the valley or enjoy our wide selection of craft beers. As the weather turns, join us inside where we like to light a giant fire on chilly days

Simon's Restaurant is on the Groot Constantia wine estate - so, great venue, great views. We arrived 30 minutes early and were thinking of a wine tasting, but the coach loads of tourists outside the tasting cellars put us off. We wandered around and then...More

Table of 9 adults, 1 child, 2 infants. The service was outstanding, food was perfect (good menu, generous portions and no problems at all) and the setting made for an enjoyable long lunch. Highly recommended for a relaxing lunch.

A wonderful delicious assortment of cold meats, hummus, fresh baguette, plus a selection of cheeses. If you like cake there are chocolate cookies too. We sat under the bridge trees at tables. Of course great selection of wines.

The food is ok for South African standard and price. I would not go back for the food. Surroundings are beautiful and wine was lovely but pricey.

The best eateries treat every guest with honor, no matter what. It’s such a pity that the staff at Simon’s haven’t mastered this. When we enquired about having a picnic with our little girl we were spoken to with, I have to admit, a bit...More

We lunched here having done a tasting at Groot Constantia and were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent and represented excellent value for money. We would certainly return here were we to be in the area and can wholeheartedly recommend it to others....More

Hi Vanessa. I think I might have been the reviewer who talked about Simon's Restaurant as I had my 70th birthday there on November 04, 2017. Google Simon and you will find their website - I am not allowed to quote it here... More
