“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I wasn't aware of Trees, even though I visit the mother city often. Friends took me there for dinner and I will without doubt go again. Attentive staff, food mouth watering delicious. ( I recommend the sirloin!). It has a peaceful atmosphere, so ideal for conversations and spectacular views.

“Lovely ambiance, friendly service and delicious food”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We went on a Tuesday evening and were seated at a lovely table close to the window. The waiter was friendly, professional and quick. The chef came out to greet us and make his recommendation, which on that night was a sirloin cut. We had a mixed green salad for starter which was a big portion and beautifully arranged on the plate. The sirloin was excellent, done exactly the way we ordered it and in no way less tasty than at steak house. There was a great selection of veggies as well, very well seasoned and cooked perfectly (some of the best veggies I have tasted in Cape Town in many years). We finished off with sharing the chocolate fondont, which was plenty for 3 people to share and delicious. Can definetly recommend and will come back soon.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Trees restaurant is on the first floor of the Townhouse Hotel. My wife and myself had most of our breakfasts there and also most of our evening meals. The only times we missed out were when we were on tours away from the hotel. The service was good and the food was excellent. It was plentiful, well presented and tasted good.

“Trip to Trees”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Trees Restaurant is situated on the first floor of The Townhouse Hotel. This hotel caters for business people and due to its proximity to Parliament it is usually busy. The restaurant can be quiet, with a number of solo business diners, or couples, however it is laid out and divided in such a way that it doesn't feel empty The restaurant is warm and comfortably furnished in a contemporary style. The tables by the windows are so close to trees outside, its a little like being in a tree-house. There is also a trendy gas-fire which is lit and welcoming all the time. We had the 'grill special' which is steak, veg or starch with a glass of wine. A selection of fresh breads and butter was offered before our delicious main of rump steak with shoestring fries and a selection of fresh vegetables arrived as ordered. My generous glass of Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir was a delight and I was very impressed that a wine of this calibre be served in a 'special'. Overall the service is so friendly, welcoming and warm. The staff doesn't change that often, always a good sign and their attitude is so pleasant it really makes one want to make a return visit.
