Went back to one of our favorite places on Sunday, Pastis in Constanita. It was pouring outside but, as usual, wonderful warm atmosphere inside with the fireplace burning away. We ordered steaks from the Specials board - both were delicious, cooked to perfection to our choice. The sides (chips and veg) were both piping hot which is highly unusual based... More

Wife and I had dinner with 2 friends. We are regulars but the quality of the food seemed to have hit a low. I had the calamari and steak. Calamari was average and there were 5 tiny steak strips. For the price I expected more. My wife had the line fish which was Kingklip. The portion was so small she... More

My cousin and I decided to meet for an impromptu supper. This was a good option as the restaurant was not busy and a booking was not required. The waitress recommended we have the seared tuna as the chef's special, which was absolutely divine, although a bit on the pricey side,

My daughter treated us to breakfast at this lovely, cosy restaurant. Service was excellent and the food even more so. Will definitely return to try the other dishes.

You can't beat Pastis on a cold winter Cape night with its hot fire and cold beating hot food. But why does the chef have to over salt the paella to his taste rather than to allow the patrons to use the salt cellars to their taste?

This place has sadly lost a lot of its spark. The service wasn't good. And the restaurant inside is a little cold.

Pastis has a lovely large outside dining area - great for kids and smokers alike. There is also a dining room and bar area, with fireplaces for winter. The menu is quite French, and they have some extraordinary French bubbles on the menu (expensive but worth it). We had the pork belly and the Rooibos chicken. Both were spectacularly good.... More

My mother and I enjoyed a good game of rugby and some good food at Pastis. Our waiter provided excellent service! The food was amazing! We shared creamy chicken livers with freshly baked bread and a delicious seafood Paella with the freshest prawns I had ever tasted. We could taste the sea IN THE RESTAURANT.
