About The Conservatory

This sophisticated, all-day dining option at The Cellars-Hohenort is a triumphant display of great quality produce unified on a plate to signify the best of comfort food.

Fresh produce from the gardens are incorporated into the seasonal menu of The Conservatory, while traditional classics and even what was Liz McGrath’s own recipes make an appearance.

​The Conservatory is built around a 200-year-old oak tree, its enormous girth displayed in an elegant glass frame, and its proud branches stretching out above the diners.

Views over the renowned Table Mountain and the camphor trees that lie at its foot form the backdrop for this restaurant. Comfortable ambience and attention to detail complement the varied menu, a reflection itself of the diverse culinary team behind The Conservatory.

The food was very good. Although we had the High Tea I feel our waitress could have checked on us to see if we needed anything more to drink. We had to look for her to order more drinks. That is the only "complaint" we have. But we will definitely come again.

The Conservatory never disappoints! Everything from the warm welcome to the great food is excellent. The kingclip was good and the slow-cooked lamb was "the best I've ever tasted", according to my guest. Only slight negative was that the aircon could be better when the doors are closed on a summer's day.

I am sorry to say the service is simply terrible. No greeting and in the bar service was very slow and a bit clueless about the drinks. In the restaurant nobody had any idea about the wine or how to pour the wine. The removal of plates was a joke and just left until we cleared them ourselves. The truth is you have a nice place but your delivery is letting you down. A shame .

Beautiful picnic with a very funny duck. His pond needed some more water and a clean. But we enjoyed having our picnic in his company with good portions and yummy food. Biltong was not great.

We had a great meal and so much better service than our last few meals at the Conservatory. We were a party of 10 persons and just after 10pm, they turned the lights up bright, turned them down and then turned them up brighter again. We were the last table, but we felt this was incredibly rude. Personally I thought it was much later, at least after 12, so did not say anything, but was flabbergasted when we got into our car to go home and it was only 1030pm!!

Every single member of the team is worth their weight in gold. From the grounds staff to the waiting on staff, they are meticulous in their delivery..... and always with a smile. Well done all. It's why we return so often....
