It's important to distinguish that the restaurant is indoors and at night only. The outdoor lunch is a separate menu that is handled completely separately. So if you didn't like one, it doesn't mean you won't like the other. The ratings for both are conflated...More

The format of the restaurant has changed since the last time we were here. They now serve a fixed menu (although they are flexible about special diets) of four courses (I think there is a five-course option as well). The nice thing about having it...More

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.
