The first thing you notice is that The Roundhouse is round, with a circular inner sanctum which extends out to the wider terrace, which is enclosed in the winter. Nestled in the hills above Camps Bay the views across both the mountains and the hills are outstanding.
As it was our first visit we headed for the tasting menu, with paired wines. Amuse bouche of cauliflower cheese mousse and dried fish soon had us under way. Each of the tasting courses are small enough that you can enjoy each one whilst getting a real feel for what the kitchen and the resident chefs are capable of. From the beetroot carpaccio, sliced thinly, to the 'winter salad' with both pickled and preserved vegetables presented as an individual work of art.
The paired wines were well chosen and varied in both source and grape variety, the pairing didn't just include wine, as a lovely deep ale partnered a melt-in-the mouth slow cooked ox tongue. The Banana soufflé presented with caramel ice cream in the centre, created a divine yet light dessert. Although the views and location are good, this is a restaurant where it is all about the food. Put yourselves in the hands of the staff and enjoy
