Peter Templehof can just cook pure and simple,there really is not much to add! He is so far ahead of his peers in Cape town.The lamb dish is just heavenly. Couple with Joshua and the team providing excellent service and Arthur producing great wines.This is one of the best restaurants in the world!

We had the 7 course wine pairing menu and the food was incredible. The idea and meaning of the courses was like something from Master Chef! The waiters and sommelier were outstanding - it was a fantastic and filling night out - such a good night!

The food in the Greenhouse is outstanding. Based on our European experience our party guessed about two Michelin Stars for the food. The service is another story! For the quality of the cuisine the wine list is wholly inadequate. Apart from very little to choose from the sommelier had almost NO knowledge of any of the wines. Apart from us... More

Now officially the very best meal I've ever had in Cape Town. I didn't think I would ever rave more than 5 stars, but here it is! We chose the Spring set menu, which didn't disappoint. The food and in-betweeners just kept on coming and coming.... I can't single out any course as they were all amazing....well, perhaps the beer... More

This is a quality venue by any standard. The service is excellent the ambiance sophisticated but not ostentatious and above all, original dishes creatively presented. Any serious restaurant patron should give this place a go. You cannot be disappointed on current form.

Service is excellent. Food is 8 out of 10. It is a fun experience to do the tasting menu with pairing. I would recommend for fine dining but wouldn't come back until I made my rounds at the other restaurants I've been wanting to try in the area.

Special occasion venue with delicious tasting menus. We were a party of four and had the spring tasting menu, which was delicious. Same type of approach as the Test Kitchen but less hipster, more of a silver silver approach. Test Kitchen better food wise, Greenhouse better ambience from our perspective. Lovely flavours, good servers (although courses were a bit rushed).
