I'll start with the negative which is not alot.. The chicken and the pork belly was a bit dry, so the kitchen definitely needs a bit of work and for the price tag you'd expect better. On the flipside the presentation of the food was excellent! They say you eat with your eyes and my eyes were salivating!! The setting... More

My partner and I went to Simon's for sundowners but then saw the menu and chose to have something to eat. I strongly recommend the Chicken Asian Salad and Dumplings as a starter. The slow roasted lamb shoulder was cooked to perfection and although we had to wait to be seated as the venue was fully booked it was well... More

My friends and I spent a fantastic afternoon at Simon's recently. The staff were very friendly and the food and service were both of exceptional quality. The views of the mountains and vineyards make this a beautiful setting for lunch. We will definitely be back!

What a winning team at Simons. Mike & Dawn were phenomenal, great service attitude, amazing staff, & the food was absolutely brilliant. It's a fantastic setting. A must visit. We had a small, intimate family lunch to celebrate a wedding. And the simons team went the extra mile.

Apart from the fantastic setting, the fact that it's kid-friendly and offers a varied menu and very decent wine list is uber awesome! We've always had great service, even when it's been hectically busy. I've tried several different meals, but my favourites are the pork belly and the lamb- sublime! They only open at 1200, but who wants to go... More

We were with friends there twice first time for lunch at the middle snack bar where you can choose your plates and once in the evening in the restaurant.Well the first for lunch was fun though nothing special,but in the evening it was expensive for what it was and the restaurant with not many people.

Booked to go for a midweek supper with the view that we could enjoy the outdoors on this wonderful wine estate. On approach you work out very quickly this is not going to be fine dining or even a traditional dinner experience. The tables, the floor, the general presentation of the restaurant appears unloved and has been given up on.... More

Nested in the middle of the wineyard the location is really nice and offers inside and outside seating. Unfortunately the food did not life up to expectation. The game carpaccio was not sliced thin as one can expects, the fillet ordered medium was dead the first time and the second attempt was unfortunately not much better and again far away... More

My wife and I enjoyed Simon's. We preceded dinner with a nice walk through the gardens at Groot Constantia estate, which are magnificent. The restaurant had good service and nice cuisine featuring fresh local produce and, of course, we sampled some very nice local wine. Thoroughly recommended.

Nestled in the fertile Constantia Valley lies a 300-year old wine estate,
Groot Constantia and on it, Simon's restaurant, where we celebrate the riches of the
Cape winelands by transforming the freshest ingredients into memorable meals.

Revel in the Cape Town summer by dining al fresco on our terrace with panoramic views of the Groot
Constantia vineyards. Savour the wines of the valley or enjoy our wide selection of craft beers.
As the weather turns, join us inside where we like to light a giant fire on chilly days
