“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were recommended Henri's by another restaurant as they were fully booked and we were not disappointed. It was one of the best meals we had whilst in the Western Cape. Great service and atmosphere.

“Tasty food but average service”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We visited Henri's to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were seated in the section near the bar, which was rather noisy, but not because of the patrons but the cocktail blenders. The service was average and not as attentive as expected. The waitress had difficulty opening a bottle of bubbly and required assistance. The food was tasty but the lamb curry portion was on the small side. I opted for no carbohydrates and had roast vegetables instead which were delicious. Our sons had the beef fillet kebab, crumbed kingklip strips and chocolate milkshakes which they loved. My wife had the Asian trio starter and the mussels in a creamy leek sauce, she also received a complimentary chocolate brownie for dessert which she really enjoyed, but then we had to wait way too long for the bill.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

My standards are akways much higger when in capetown as their restaurants, for me anyway, are some of the best in the world. Henri's is absolutely no exception! Food excellent, service excellent, atmosphere excellent, although better for groups. Should definitely be on your 'to do' list.

“Best Filet Steak in Cape Winelands”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Looking for a large, thick, juicy, tender filet steak in the cape winelands? Henri's in Somerset West is the place to go! And the price can't be beat either! Plus, Henri's winelist is first class as well. For you single folks, Henri's bar is a great place to have a few drinks and eat dinner as well without having to make a reservation for a table. I concur that the quality of the beef is definitely PRIME. And everyone from Grant the owner and Rick the bartender give excellent 5-star service. An added benefit is that they are open every evening except Sunday . . . so a great place to go on a Monday night when most places are closed. You won't be disappointed! Jimmy's favorite restaurant in the Cape!!!
