We were regular visitors to SA for 14 years and have visited many wine estates. We've now moved to live here and, having brought our dog with us, are seeking dog friendly places to eat. Simons advertises itself as such but what it fails to tell you when you book is that you will be sat outside amid the smokers!... More

After the disappointing wine tour, we settled for lunch. To our surprise a nice selection of decent wines also from other estates. Food was certainly ok, but not comparable with some other great Capetown based Restaurants. All in all a positive finish after a disappointing wine tour at the Groot Constantia wine estate.

Perfect for relaxed Sunday lunch with friends and family - perfect Winelands feel on Cape Town's doorstep without having to travel too far

We went for our first meal out in SA feeling extremely tired! It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in a very pretty vineyard. Food was rustic and tasty. Service was very friendly. A nice, chilled out evening in a pretty setting. Would recommend!

Went for dinner with 14 friends. The food was delicious and portions were generous. Our waitress and staff coped very well and we all had a lovely evening. The setting is also good for day time as you can sit outside and overlook the vineyards. Good value for money and the calamari starter is a must try.

The food was good, service has room for improvement, the view and the fact that it's so open outside when the weather is good, is really nice

We went to Simons Deli at the back of the restaurant, it seems new and the range of stalls is a bit limited, but still worth a visit. They are trying out a cashless system, you pre-purchase onto a card and use the card at the stalls, which is a problem as we twice ran out of money and had... More
