De Grendel Restaurant belongs on the top 20 Eat Out awards list! I have been wowed by the fantastic food over and over again. Apart from the magnificent setting, view of table mountain - the service is outstanding, food delicious and finely presented and of course the best wines to pair with it. I will never tire of this place.... More

Very nice and tranquil location. Decent food and wine. The service was excellent! The seating outside can only be chosen when you are there, so it makes sense to be there at opening times. It was even possible to book a table via email on the same day.

The food, the ambience, the wines to compliment both ... looking to spoil her or just a night out with your special one, this rendezvous will not disappoint. A Gem, just below Plattekloof Hill and overlooking the Beautiful Table Mountain. Pricing can be a bit steep. It's a special occasion venue.
