“Good food, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our visit to the 5 rooms restaurant. We had a table outside and even though it was a bit chilly, the heaters kept us warm. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive. The food was very good and there was plenty on the menu to appeal to all. The atmosphere was also very good - we shall certainly return.

“Elegant dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

I had dinner at this hotel on Friday evening with my wife, we dined in the 5 rooms dining facility. Although on arrival the staff seemed very confused, muddled and still vacuuming the place they eventually sorted us out.

The food was extremely nice and very well presented, the table service was excellent, thank you Thomas.

I would recommend a visit if you are in the Cape Town area.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Dined here several times over a course of four weeks. Very pleasant and nice atmosphere, especially on the outdoor terrace. Good quality food but menu did not change and need to be refreshed more often. Good service and a very nice place for an evening meal.

“standards slipping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

we returned after a previous visit and were really looking forward to our meal. It was a very hot evening and this may have taken its toll on the staff. The greeting and service was great and my wife's food was excellent. However my fish (sole) was served completely raw actually stone cold.
I pointed this out the manager and it was quickly whisked away to be cooked. It returned later perfectly cooked .
I accept mistakes can be made but this really should never have left the kitchen had the chef been doing his job properly.
we will be back soon as we like the place so much and are prepared to put this down as a one off
I worry that others may not be so accommodating.
