“Really poor service; will not be back again.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Went here on a Sunday for wine tasting - one of the many Durbanville wineries open on a Sunday so didn't think there would be any issues despite some wet weather. However due to their wine tastings normally being done outside - they had no interest in doing them today. Apparently they only had 1 bar man available too - (i think the many waitresses would have been capable of pouring a few glasses of wine to taste!!) Manager was rude and dismissive when asked if they could accommodate any wine tasting. Really poor.

“Oh dear what a night!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Took my husband for dinner for his birthday! How sad, a restaurant with such a breathtaking view, has such poor service and the food was not what was on the web site. The food was really disappointing to say the least. There was also a cat walking around in site around the tables, not very nice to eat dinner and have cats walking around your feet. :( :( :(

Best buffet dinner on the hill overlooking cape town. what more could you want? just make sure you go to the upper restaurant on the hill. Ideal for functions and weddings

“TOO EXPENSIVE”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

We visited Bloemendal Restaurant for a family lunch but will never return as they are so over-priced for what you get! There are more than enough other excellent retaurants in the area to choose from.
