Great food! Fantastic Service.
We live in New York and are used to great food and service. The Roundhouse is definitly comparable to some of the great places in New York. It was absolutely delicious. As we were in South Africa for our honeymoon they even custom made menus with our names on it. It was a great touch. Loved it and would go back.

Each time I go I have tried something new and different. The little tastes and surprises in between courses are a delight. The menu is innovative and service attentive!

We brought a group of Americans here for their first luncheon in Cape Town. Wow! What an incredible welcoming experience in this historic setting on the mountain slopes. Everyone was amazed at the quality and tasty meals. The wine pairings were perfect. Overall a 10 - and big thanks to Eric Bulpitt, the Exec. Chef who is amazing with his variety, skill and imaginative dishes, Wayve, the superbWine Sommelier, Clifford, the Manager, Anthony and all the staff are first class with outstanding service. We highly recommend The Roundhouse - if you can get a table - booking essential.
Our First meal in Africa - tough act to follow.

We have wanted to go to the Roundhouse for sometime and a recent trip to Cape Town was a good opportunity to go. The restaurant certainly lived up to our expectations and the food was reminiscent of the Three Chimneys on Skye. Great to have an exceptional mean when there are so many overrated restaurants around

we had a really nice evening at the Roundhouse. The staff is exceptionally friendly and care a lot about the details. We had the 4-course winter special, and the food was really good, only the dessert was a bit dull. All in all go there and have a wonderful evening in a stylish atmosphere.
