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.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the assistance in making my mothers birthday so special!  Please pass my compliments on to the rest of the team. Passion was a fantastic waiter and the chef team created such a lovely balance of sweet and savoury treats without the sweet treats being overwhelmingly sugary. Everything was incredibly delicious and just had you wanting more! I can't wait to come back but from the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who really made our visit so memorable!

The lady at the front desk was super smiley and sweet and we discovers that we both have 6-month olds at home. Loved that! In the dining room the service was top notch - friendly, professional and attentive. We were also very impressed when the restaurant manager popped around to ask how our night was and mentioned our conversation with the front desk - our first night out in over 6 months! It showed us that time and care was taken by all staff members to ensure that all their customers had the best evening possible. Great work, guys! We will definitely be back!

Hi I loved it and so did my guest. I would prefer a few more savouries on the platter. Secondly, for a high tea, I was disappointed that the sugar was not represented in a silver bowl rather than in the paper sachets.Service was excellent. View and garden amazing. A beautiful afternoon. Thank you.

We had High Tea, sitting outside on the patio as the sun slipped down over Table Mountain. As you walk through the hotel, the troubles of the day disappear as you enjoy the location, garden, service and quality of the tea. We were fortunate to be served by a delightful lady, Precious, and my veggie wife was well looked after with alternative sandwiches, quiche and savoury morsels. Afternoon tea is such a treat, Cellars-Hohenort a special place. Certainly an experience you’d wish to share, enjoy! Happy days, yummy food.

Sadly a disappointing experience overall - I booked a full day at your hotel for my daughters 16th birthday and to be honest I was disappointed that the service staff did not make much of an effort to celebrate this with us - they seemed almost afraid to even talk to us... We currently live (and work) in Kenya and Kenyans have the warmest and most welcoming hospitality which is second to none even although they don't have such prime properties, their amazing hospitality totally compensates for it. We also had booked for spa treatments and again we unfortunately found that we were treated with conveyor belt treatment - there were no private dressing and changing areas for client discretion, or even coat hangers for our clothes we were given one chair to put our clothes, handbags , jewellery and underwear on - utterly pathetic. The spa staff were just so cold and unfriendly - made us feel like we were disturbing their Sunday afternoon peace. Worst spa treatment ever - total waste of money. You need to review this whole spa concept. Finally we also had ensured by phoning ahead ( and also reconfirming with the maitre'd after our lunch in the Conservatory after the spa) that we could bring our miniature dog with us to the Conservatory for dinner as the establishment boasts that it is a dog friendly hotel - however not when we arrived at 7pm for dinner, we were met with stares of horror upon seeing the dog which was so very embarassing and shameful for us until the same maitre'd was called upon my request. We requested and were given the Doggie Menu and it was served beautifully by a lovely restaurant floor manager - this was the only good thing (plus the ducks) about the day to be honest. All in all I feel like I ruined my lovely and shy daughters sweet 16th birthday which thanks to Cellars Hohenhort. I would not recommend his hotel to anyone.
