A beautiful drive with 70s classic Mercedes' ended in a relaxed lunch at Simon's. The food is very good, pasta and calamari good, with the Burger the dish to go for. Service was good, just check the weather before going, the wind can get bad 😳

We booked two picnics for a busy Sunday lunch. We were there at 12:00 pm and the restaurant was sold out and they were busy making alternative arrangements both on the terrace and inside the lounge area for picnicers due to the strong wind. Yet we were greeted by manageress Kim as valued guests as if she had all the... More

Unimpressed by food. All dishes looked good and were perfectly edible. But nothing special. Ravioli could have come from a frozen packet. Wine stupendously pricey - and this is on a wine farm You only want the tourist market??

After having great food and service throughout the area for 3 weeks, this restaurant hit rock bottom. We were served wine in chipped glasses. We had to use our dirty starter cutlery for our main course. My wife's pasta was crispy !! my slow cooked pork belly was fatty and greasy. The young manager was half heartedly apologetic .It was...

The food at Simon's was ok but nothing special, and service was on the slow side. Nice view. There are so many other vineyard restaurants that offer better value for money, so can't recommend it.

This use to be a favourite place to chill out and admire the views while having a well prepared fresh lunch but my experience today was very disappointing . There were four of us so not a big order but my Fish & Chips was translated into Kingklip and new potatoes , as we were already late for lunch and... More

Wonderful selection of snacks and hot food. Mix that with the gorgeous view of the Constantia vineyards and you can't go wrong. Very friendly service and as for the wine - you can't beat it.

My calamari starter was very lightly breaded and cooked to perfection. I had gazpacho which was also nice and was a very large portion. My husband had the Asian chicken salad which was quite large. He didn't much care for the sauce they put on it. Service was very good. There is seating both indoors or in the garden.

Four friends went to lunch here and all had a great time. The setting among the vineyards is lovely, with the dappled sun in the eating area. It was very full and the atmosphere was good. Our waiter was very efficient and attentive. The menu was not extensive but was varied and well thought out. Our starters were all good... More

I'll start with the negative which is not alot.. The chicken and the pork belly was a bit dry, so the kitchen definitely needs a bit of work and for the price tag you'd expect better. On the flipside the presentation of the food was excellent! They say you eat with your eyes and my eyes were salivating!! The setting... More
