We went there to celebrate my birthday.
We enjoyed an impeccable service and had a very delicious set menu. When they discovered that it was my birthday they made a special happy birthday dessert for me which was extraordinary delicious. I can recommend this place for special occasions, because this place is reliable and excellent in every aspect.
Thank you for the good time. We'll be back next time we stay in London.

“Amazing Tasting Menu!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ate at The Greenhouse for our first honeymoon dinner. We were not disappointed. We arrived a little early so we had a drink at the other restaurant at Cellars, also a great spot. Our meal was creatively designed and beautifully presented. And of course, everything tasted amazing! The service was outstanding and the wine pairings complimented each course perfectly. We were there in wintertime and arrived after sunset, but we can only imagine the view when it's light out. We'll definitely go back on our next visit to Cape Town!

“Intimate and upmarket”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The moment you walk through the doors you know you're in for a treat. Quiet sophistication and elegance. Outstanding wine list and gorgous food - recommend the duck and chocolate fondants!

“Best meal, EVER!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Ive had the opportunity to share two amazing meals here and on both occasions I've had truly wonderful, memorable and difficult to top experiences.

I can truly say that I have had the 'Best Meal of my Life' here.
I can't think of a better place to share a special occasion and given that I had flawless service and perfect food, in an unbelievable setting, I can't think of a better place to make any reason to visit here too hard to decide on.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best restaurant in South Africa - at least the best I have had the joy of visiting.
