The Gardener's Cottage is a peaceful spot in Newlands for either breakfast or lunch.

There is seating bothy inside and outside - outside is perfect a hot summer's day in the shade of huge trees.

The menu is interesting, the food and service both good.

The shops (except the nursery) are closed on Sundays.

A great spot for family get-togethers over week-ends!
A small play area keeps the toddlers amused.

Ideal for couples, families, friends.

We came here in a largish group after a long hot walk, without a reservation on a Sunday, and were greeted with open arms and lovely chilled wine! Sitting under huge and gorgeous trees the food was terrific - Thai chicken curry was delicious for example. Would eat here a lot if I lived nearby.

I visited Montebello in winter season. Even though it was chilly the African themed restaurant was warm and had blankets and heaters. They also provided a little free taster of soup! I had a vegetarian wrap which was so delicious. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, there are little craft and gift shops around with lovely items. A lovely experience, I will definitely be back!

Excellent place for an afternoon tea with hungry students from UCT! Hot favourites were the chocolate brownie with icecream and cheesecake with strawberry topping!

Absolutely heavenly sitting under the big trees! Great service and food. A bit pricey but worth it. Always have a positive experience there.
