As occasional visitors to Cape Town it was good to revisit one of our favourites. This restaurant has a great atmosphere in an historic building which at one time was on the waterfront. The menu was varied and accommodated the vegetarians in our party. The wine list selections were well balanced and well priced and the service first class. To... More

Stylish and informal ambience, short but inventive menu. The Gaspacho soup could be the best I ever had, and the blesbok entree was also outstanding. This was the best meal we had in Cape Town.

We celebrated my husbands birthday at this wonderful restaurant. SADLY it's not mentioned in S.A.'s top ten restaurants. The food was excellent, prepared to perfection accompanied by great service. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

Occasionally, one comes across a fantastic restaurant and this one is a case in point. We contacted them telephonically and I could hear that they were trying really hard to accommodate our request for a table for two. If we arrived at opening time (18:30) they could accommodate us, as they would be fully booked later in the evening. So... More

Savoy Cabbage is locztd between the City Bowl and the Bo-kaap. It offers great food and service, a little bit on the expensive side, but has a great atmosphere.

The tomato tart was fabulous as was my husbands almond and grape... More

We made a spontaneous reservation and were absolutely amazed! First of all the staff is super nice, friendly and attentive! The interior is beautiful and the whole restaurant has a very nice atmosphere (modern, rustic and chic). Oh yes....and the food is absolutely delicious! Thanks for a lovely evening!

Nice place with good service. The food was nice if not spectacular. My wife had the tomato tart to start with, which she said lacked flavour, my cheese souffle was lovely. Mains she had the fish main course which looked and tasted superb, and was my Eland. We finished with both having the sorbet which was nice. It was a... More

We enjoyed dinner here last year and booked ahead to secure a table again this year. The quality of food and service is outstanding. We took friends with us this year and they were very impressed.

Enjoy creative contemporary cooking in a visually exciting venue. With its historic Table Mountain stone and old brick that dates back to the 18th century, architect Leon Saven's design is complemented by glass, concrete and exposed ducting. Cabbage motif chandeliers and salt dishes, fine table appointments and impeccable service reflect outstanding attention to detail. The menu alters daily, using the freshest local produce and combines unusual flavours to excite the palate of the discerning diner. A boutique wine list which is very reasonably priced.
