Relaxed meal sitting outside under the tree watching Kloof St. go by. Good service, well presented food and very good value. Have already recommended Emily's to others.

Emily's had a small, type-written menu, indicating seasonal cooked to order food. We had the burger which was requested as well-done, and arrived moist and well done (not that easy), with a mushroom sauce,, and a posh bobotie. The food was great, the service was friendly and personal, and the setting (in church grounds) was peaceful, but did not lack atmosphere.
As UK residents we found the food more tasty than food in many restaurants and cafes in South Africa, and also good value for money.
Shame we found Emilys on our last night in Cape town, as we would have happily eaten there every night

We had lunch here and the next day also dinner, which was just lovely. Nice place to sit, with a garden to sit outside. We had the bobotie and chicken malay curry, all very nicely prepared. I think they had a young but very motivated chef. Best thing was dessert: my husband had a malva pudding and I had the peppermint crisp tart. In one word: yummie!

We had a very special evening at Emily's late January.The setting is really special and we had our pre dinner drinks in the very cozy garden,from which we could partly see the cableway .After moving inside we ordered starters .I had a very fresh Italian salad with an excellent dressing.My partner had the Cape pickled fish which was a winner.For our main courses we had bobotie and curried chicken .Both were delish and beautifully presented.The malva pudding and the basaarpoeding (but wait till you see the presentation!)were a perfect ending to a lovely memorably evening.Particularly clever were the touches in the decor as well as the tongue in cheek names on the menu.l was particularly ticked by Die Burger,and simply had to ask the waiter to explain.It turned out to be their know already famous take on the original burger.The ambience is lovely but try to arrive before dark to experience both the late afternoon as well as the evening atmosphere. We loved the inside and the playful detail.It's modern,but it is laid-back and relaxing.It is also done with impeccable style.Treat yourself and book a table.Thank you to the staff and for a very special dining experience.
