The first time that we visited the Hillcrest Berry Orchard's Restaurant was in 2005. Due to the excellent setting and the quality of the berry products we revisited a couple of times thereafter. Yesterday with a group of 9 guests was a huge disappointment. We realised that Hillcrest got caught up in 1989 with the cane furniture interior of the... More

I love this place and we always come back on our visits to Cape Town. Lovely views from the patio. However, this time was a bit of a miss. I ordered a starter whilst everyone else just had mains. My chicken liver pate was so-so, far too much for a single serving, and came out along with two other entrees.... More

We decided to go have scones and cheesecake one Saturday afternoon and expected it to rather empty seeing that it was storming. When we arrived there the place was packed and we were fortunate to get a table. The service was exceptionally professional and coffee and eats were lovely.

Typical Cape weather forced us to sit inside. Have a careful look at the menu times as Breakfast is only served until 11am, and Lunch from 12 onwards. A basic menu is still available in between these times and surprisingly the food was fantastic. I definitely recommend the Potato Soup!

Great service, food and deli to select from. We were a large family with 6 kids aging from 3 to 11. Both kids and adult menu had a nice selection. Our course included burgers, bobotie, pizzas and some other items all enjoyable. We did not have any dessert, but these looked divine and expected to be highly recommended.

We've always loved Hillcrest but this Sat past was amazing. We celebrated my mom's birthday with lunch outdoors while gazing at the surrounding mountains. I had worked closely with Purdon, the manager and the chef baked my mom the loveliest birthday cake. The willingness to help, the friendly staff and the idyllic setting makes it continuously one of our favorite... More

It was raining but we had already decided to stop here! Without the view and the outdoors, the food alone is average. Not everyone wants a big meal at lunchtime but with the cold weather perhaps they should add some specials even though it is not peak season. The wrap with vegetables was very tasty. Scones were generous but we... More

The extensive patio is definitly the favourite place to sit, with wonderful views over to the surrounding mountains. There is a good supply of large sun umbrellas to keep the heat of the sun off of you and the food. This is a very popular place for lunch or morning/afternoon snacks and service is sometimes slow, There is a good... More

On THIS particular trip, we decided to treat a couple of guests to scones for teatime. The scones (R45) were absolutely horrible so the experience was ruined. I felt very embarrassed to have to raise it with the staff (who consequently did nothing to explain or rectify the situation). In essence the scones were dry, overly-crumbly, dense and way too...

Beautiful setting! Food is great, service terrible. Staff stands talking and it took a long while to catch somebody's attention.
