This place was amazing. The location of the restaurant itself deserves a review on it's own. The tasting menu is sublime. If you're in Cape Town do yourself a favour and visit!

Went here after a visit to the Table Mountain for a late lunch. Beautiful place and great ambience. Almost like being invited to a garden party. Perfect spot to sit and sip a glass of chilled white wine while indulging in some nice lunch food.

Excellent meal, good service but the evening felt a little overdone. It all seemed somewhat contrived. If they cut done on the showiness and concentrated on the food it would be better.

This restaurant is some way out of Cape Town, but well worth the taxi ride. It advertises "bistronomy - the gentle balance between French bistro style cooking, fine dining and heart warming gastro style fare." I'd say the accent is on the fine dining side...More

Description
Steeped in over 300 years of history, the former guard house, tea room, hotel and the hunting lodge of Lord Charles Somerset has been elegantly restored with the charm and sophistication of the Grand Old Cape. The style of cuisine at The Roundhouse is uncomplicated, contemporary French, inspired by seasonal ingredients and paired with one of the finest boutique wine collections in South Africa.
