“Veggie and food lovers delight”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is one of the best vegetarian meals I have ever had. The vegetarian options were mouth watering. There were plenty of meat/ fish options as well so don't worry non veggies there are plenty of options for everyone. The food was excellent and wines delicious.
Make sure to make a reservation.

“On an expensive side”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is an interesting place. Location does not look very welcoming in the evening as streets are empty and you're entering the place secured by electrically operated steel gate, but you tend to forget it once you're inside.

Staff is warm and welcoming, but sometimes struggle with explanations. Nothing to worry about, overall very pleasant experience.

I had a choice of game and it tasted very good, and so did every other course, but none of them really stood above other restaurants in Cape Town. Wine list is good and staff is ready to help. Great place, but in one of the most competitive food areas in the world and with prices it commands should be trying a bit harder.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant caters for the top end. The menu is excellent and varied, service is crisp and smart. The restaurant is cosy , great selection of fine wines and they know the pairings. We had a wonderful meal there but be prepared to pay for your enjoyment .

“There are better options”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The food is fine, but for the price you can do much better! Our waitress started describing the courses but some she couldn't tell, and by the end she stopped explaining. The wine pairing was poor.

“very disapointing”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had dinner at Aubergine on 2th August. I must say that I have been very disapointing by this restaurant. The wine list is great, one of the best in capetown and the wines were very good. But unfortunately the food was poor and tasteless, for me there is a need to improve the food comparing to other goods restaurants in Capetown.
