Dear Arthur, Thank you for your review. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the other facilities we have on site- like the hair salon, Spa and Collection boutique for some retail therapy? If not there's always next time. Kind regards, Angie

We ate at the Conservatory on three of the four nights on our recent stay at the Cellars hotel. We tried all of the main dishes between us and they were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Bobotie, the Cheese soufflé and the chocolate dessert.

The English Breakfast still haunts my dreams! I shall be back. The extremely friendly staff always ensured that we had fresh fruits, fresh juice and always whipped up something delicious for breakfast.

Description
The Conservatory, situated adjacent to the historic Cellars-Hohenort cellar, offers diners unparalleled garden vistas from both the sun-drenched terrace and the indoor tables. Carefully constructed around a giant 300-year-old oak tree, The Conservatory is one of Constantia's finest daily breakfast, lunch and dinner venues. Here the head chef creates hotel classics alongside modern and seasonally influenced dishes. The Conservatory menu places a great emphasis on fresh produce from both The Cellars-Hohenort gardens and local green-friendly suppliers, and this gives it the unique ability to showcase a true taste of the Constantia Valley. Friendly service and an award-winning wine list ensure that The Conservatory offers guests and locals an exceptional everyday dining experience.
