This was certainly a fine dining experience at the Greenhouse. The chef was celebrating his 10 year anniversary and we could only choose the 10 course option menu, which sounded amazing. The tastes were refined, but for the majority not mind blowing. We went for...More

A tasting menue of 10 courses, each of them highly sophisticated compositions of flavours. For me, the highlights were the prawns and tuna combined in a fresh, light fish course, and among the desserts, the cheesecake and pineapple ice cream. A burst of flavours -...More

The 10 course menu is imaginative, full of subtle flavours and very satisfying. The service was excellent, the waiters knowledge of food and wine made it a great experience. One of the best tasting menus we ever had!

We enjoyed our time here.( not the first time) but the inability to have a more substantial meal of what you really like puts us off going again. The focus on theatre at the table is entertaining but really the fuss over a prawn has...More

I reviewed this restaurant a year ago. The food then, as now, was absolutely top notch. The trout dish and the springbok loin were simply sublime - really outstanding. The 10 courses were indeed all great. The trouble though, is that 10 courses served rather...More
