We had a wonderful evening. The food was extraordinary and our servant, Ophias, was very helpful, nice and professional. He helped us pick just the right courses, and all in all is this a night we'll never forget.

We popped in for afternoon tea and drinks - the service is always slow but the atmosphere is good. We had scones and they were ok, very large and they give you 2 each so we took one home. Nice place to watch the paragliders land!

Very friendly and attentive service, good selection of dishes, very good food and wine. The layout of the restaurant is very relaxing - the tables are well spaced so that even when full it doesn't feel crowded. A good place to relax after a day of sight-seeing in this great city.

This bar is the perfect place to watch the sun set and grab a fabulous beer or wine and small plates. The setting is casual and cosy and the servers are very sweet. The fish and chips is to die for and "Jack Black" pilsner a real find.

We ate in this restaurant during our stay at the Winchester Mansions. We had a lovely window table. The food was excellent and presentation of the food was very pleasing to the eye. The service was good. Not at all rushed which is the way we like it.

Food, flair, flavour at Harveys . . . A "sundowner" is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean.

Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must.
